    The so called tourists were mostly from Benagluru, which has attracted massive immigrants from the North of India and other states to work in the IT sweatshops of Bengaluru as IT techie coolies to make the like of Infosys Murtys very rich indeed so that they can donate more money to their daughter and son-in-law who live abroad, and the son-in-law can try to become the leader of that country by spending massive amounts of money.
    There are no longer many born Mysoreans and Bengalureans left any more. The Northies, Keralite a, Andhrudus and Tamils are these tourists.
