He further announced that he would now buy at Rs20. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. Soon the supply diminished even further and people started going back to their farms. The offer rate increased to Rs25 and the supply of monkeys became so little that it was an effort to even see a monkey, let alone catch it!
The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at Rs50! However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy onbehalf of him. In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers. Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at Rs35 and when the man returns from the city, you can sell it to him for Rs50."
The villagers squeezed up with all their savings and bought all the monkeys.
Then they never saw the man nor his assistant, only monkeys everywhere!! !

The MBD Group will launch MBD Zephyr, a mixed-use lifestyle destination entailing luxury hotel, luxury retail and premium retail and entertainment in Bangalore.MBD Zephyr is the first of its kind mixed use development in India which will interpret the concept of luxury in three defined categories: luxury hotel, luxury retail, premium retail and entertainment.
Several other infrastructure projects are coming on the way to Bangalore as follows:
1. Hindhuja realty ventures have proposed to construct a Software park in Yelahanka which is near to the International Airport. Its construction is expected to start in 2 to 3 months.
2. Bangalore Water supply and Sewarage Board (BWSSB) has also come up with several projects for the betterment of environment and society.
3. Improvement in BMTC services
4. Introducing many Volvo type buses at reasonable cost
5. More flyovers and underpasses are expected to make traveling both within the city and from outside more comfortable.
If things move in the right direction, Bangalore 2012 will be truly a city of the future where everyone wants to live. And life will be more comfortable, at least in terms of transport. But if infrastructure projects continue to become victims of political bickering, the Silicon City is sure to be more chaotic.
