Oswal, in her post, wrote, "Shuttling between Bangalore + Bombay frequently has gotten me thinking: Bangalore's startup/vc community is doing a great job of creating hype + then turning it into a self-fulfilling prophecy of growth. The city is an upcoming centre of power as paper wealth converts to real money- but it's still early as the city transitions from town to thriving metropolis."

She further added, "Bombay, on the other hand, with its multigenerational wealth, feels like it's past its prime, but it's not going to go down without a fight and is clawing its way back to its glory days. The cities reflect the ages & ideologies of their residents: idealism v/s the establishment. Which would you bet on?"

Take a look at her post here:

Here's how people reacted:

An individual wrote, "What you build > where you build. Location will matter less than we imagine — it already does. People are building great stuff all over the world."

A second shared, "Bombay is like that 300-year-old castle that stands strong and will continue to stand strong but has only lost shine. Bangalore is a new expressway which will have potholes in 3 rainy seasons, and they will keep rebuilding 5-10 years."

"Mumbai is the OG growth story and will continue to dominate for centuries," posted a third.

A fourth commented, "Silicon Valley's boom didn't diminish New York's allure. It's a cliched comparison, but Mumbai will always remain the city of dreams."

"Bengaluru: Focuses on tech, product, digital businesses which scale as a product level org. Mumbai: Focuses on a people-based business, industry, and agency type, which helps businesses scale. Both have potential but contrast in operations. Choosing according to interest is best."
