Hi Pamri, Your edits to the Bangalore page look great. However, I wonder about the use of the words 'stand' and 'station.' 'Stand' implies a place at the side of the road where one or two buses stop. It has nothing to do with the buses being local or not. 'Station' is used for a place where many buses arrive and leave. I have been to the bus terminal in Bangalore, and I would definitely call it a 'bus station.' Anyway I won't change it, but will leave the decision to you. By the way, the list of restaurants in Bangalore need catergorizing into *=Budget, **=Mid-range and ***=Spurge. If you have knowledge of the restaurants, and are prepared to catergorize them, that would be very useful to travelers. Thanks.

Sorry, I just re-read your comments. By local useage, of course, you mean what Bangaloreans call the bus terminuses. Still, I think it would be better to you the standard expression. Otherwise, travelers will be looking for a side of the road stop, not that huge station in Bangalore, and if they ask a local using the term 'station' not 'stop', they would still be easily understood. Anyway, this is just my idea. I'll leave the decision up to you.
