When you land in Bangalore, three kinds of advertisements dominate, telling you all you need to know about what is happening in that city. First, in the airport itself, ads for “luxury” high rise apartments, most yet to be built, shown as renders on green digital parks. Secondly, bank loans so you can finally live in that “dream home” you’ve always wanted. Lastly, on the road out of the airport, on the sides of the buildings, on barriers, on billboards, ads for every conceivable type of cement.
