The entire Menchanbele located to the west of Bangalore city and is a part of the Bangalore Rural District. The lands surrounding Bangalore are vast stretches of dry hills and plateaus spotted with tiny mud houses here and there, an irony to the city filled with the Concrete buildings gummed together with narrow and wide crowded busy lanes.
Unlike the city, farming thrives to be a occupation in these villages and constitutes a wholesome portion of Economy. When we boast about Bangalore as a big city in India, we must think about the pathetic living conditions of the people living around the city. I have seen several times people from these villages bringing goats and agriculture produce in local train to Bangalore City listening to the scolding from the IT guys and the authorities.
