Mavalli Rama Rao Road







Don't let the pictures of cows and children fool you. This narrow road connecting SP Road and Avenue Road, lined with hardware stores supply some of the high-tech needs of India's technology capital - Benglur.

The shops lining this street and this part of the market are an important lifeline to one of Benglur's largest employer - the small scale engineering industry. They provide regular and specialised raw materials (like special metals) and precision tools, for the best price, to industries spread across acres and acres of tin roofed work spaces, in places like Peenya to the North West and Jigani in the South.

These small engineering firms are the foot soldiers for the precision engineering companies that make Benglur the capital of precision mechanical engineering of India. Like they say about Peenya - it manufactures nuts and bolts to ISRO's rockets and satellites, with help from Benglur's small industries who can meet their standards. And the raw materials. It's most probably sourced from these narrow gallis.
