While doing a bit of research this afternoon, I came across the following in Wikipedia:
The 50-year old Indian Coffee House at M. G. Road in Bangalore closed on 5 April 2009, after the Indian Coffee Workers' Cooperative Society Limited lost a legal battle with the owner of the building to continue in the premises. It has however been reopened on Church Street, less than a hundred metres away.
What a blow! The ICH is an Indian institution, and the one on MG Road in Bangalore was a real classic. Entering its blue wooden doors was like stepping back in time. Waiters dressed in Raj-era throw-back uniforms, complete with stiff turban-like hats (which call to mind the typical groom's headdress of North India). The very air was rife with the dust of days-gone-by. As far as I know, you can still get that feeling at the Mavalli Tiffin Room on Lal Bagh and Koshy's on St. Mark's Road.

It's the title of a song I like by Nobukazu Takemura. And have you seen a Robinson anemometer? Very cool looking.
