Why is Bengaluru called the Silicon Valley of India?

Bangalore has been the IT capital of India since the late 1980s.

In many ways, the culture, climate and progressive nature of

entrepreneurs of Bangalore are conducive to innovative business,

much like the San Francisco Bay Area, specifically Santa Clara and

San Jose. This region of California is known as Silcon Valley owing

to the predominance of semiconductor manufacturers, which paved the

way to the high-tech and IT dominance of the area. Bangalore has

been likened to this region and is hence known as the Silicon

Valley of India. I also suspect it has something to do with the

geography - Bangalore is actually on a plateau, but is also

somewhat nestled between some mountainous regions, lending veracity

to the 'Valley' part of its moniker.
