If Priyanka Prachad has been quoted right, I'll have to say it is rather
unfair to say that "Bangalore has tiny forums and Mumbai has none". There
are strong communities from out of Bangalore. Shouldn't need to add that
Mumbai has equally strong communities as well.

There is diverse language community thriving on Internet from Bangalore.

In fact, a community in the local language that I personally maintain (
http://sampada.net) started in 2005 has had regular stream of increasing
users all these years. And there are strong communities like Praja (
http://praja.in), Citizen Matters (citizenmatters.in), India Water Portal (
http://indiawaterportal.org/) and many more from Bangalore... the list is
