The unique lingo of Bengaluru is a palimpsest that tells us so much about the communities that have inhabited the city. Tracking its evolution, therefore, can help us understand the multicultural landscape of the city today.
Bengaluru slang is getting renewed attention as the city’s influencers animate these words through their funny, light-hearted reels and posts. Join us for a conversation with content creators Sonu Venugopal, Shreyas Rao, and Sriram Sullia as they discuss the origins of many much loved slang words and phrases, and the role social media has played in popularising Bengaluru lingo.
Stay back for the last 10 minutes of the programme for a fun quiz about the city’s quirks!
This event is in collaboration with the British Council, as part of the Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH) programme.
