When we talk of Agra, we don’t think beyond Taj Mahal; talking of Banaras makes us think about surreal Ganga Ghats, say Gurgaon and all we think of is glistening Cyber City. We usually go by the stereotypes; and here we make the mistake. A city is more than what it is popularly ‘known for’. There are things that we don’t talk about often, things that are left unnoticed, stories that are left unheard and memories that get buried with time.
We strongly believe that it’s time we look beyond what a city is ‘known for’ and discover all that is left ‘unexplored’. We are here with an idea; the idea is to reinvent the way people explore a city. We are The City Bytes.
We are a team of young at heart Indians, who have grown up in cities that are often called Tier-2 cities in India. For many our cities are merely a small dot on the World Map, but for us it is an emotion. We have known our cities for its essence; it’s food, it’s culture, the slangs and lingo that binds its citizens into one. No matter how far we go from the city we have always lived in, it remains with us as a fond memory.
The City Bytes is an attempt to cherish these memories and connect you with your cities. Our cities are emerging like never before and they definitely need some talking.
We are here to tell you that if you are planning to visit Agra, it’s not just Taj Mahal that will take your breath away.
We know that Assi Ghat in Banaras, does not mean ‘80 Ghats’.
We have had enough of Mumbai’s street food, Delhi’s cafés and Pune’s Bakery; It’s time to drool over Agra ka Petha, Lucknow ke Kebab, Jaipur ki Pyaz Kachori and Banarsi Paan.
So, we will be talking about some relatable and interesting stories from within the cities, encompassing travel & lifestyle, food & drinks, fashion & beauty, youth & career, current events & opinions, music & culture, shopping & market and what not.
