  1. Cities are now branded more than countries or regions.London is a brand in a way England is not.People know Bombay more than Maharashtra. India’s tier 11 cities have identities which metros lack.There are many like Indore- Jaipur,Hyderabad,Thiruvananthapuram ( a mouthful), Mysore and not to forget the ultramodern Chandigarh and the picturesque Simla. Steve, your blog is now making a difference and should soon emerge as a brand !
