Bengaluru is famous as an IT hub and known as the Silicon Valley of India. In the past few days, Bengaluru has also been in the news after several parts of the city were inundated following continuous rain. Social media was flooded with photos and videos showing the water-logged streets and how some people used innovative ways such as travelling on tractors and bulldozers to commute to the office to work.

One such photo was shared on Twitter by Sanket Sahu, showing a man working on a desktop from a coffee shop. “I just saw a group working from the Third Wave Coffee with “a full-fledged desktop setup” because their offices are flooded,” he tweeted on September 7.
