Bengaluru, Oct 18 (IANS): If everything goes well, the Karnataka government is all set to establish the 'Bengaluru Design District' on lines of Dubai Design District popularly known as d3.

Dubai District Design (d3) established in 2013 is a space where the world of design, art, and fashion co-exist, where new perspectives are provided and a change of the ordinary to the extraordinary is made possible.

Keeping in mind to set up the proposed 'Bengaluru Design District', C.N. Ashwath Narayan, the Minister for IT/Bt and S&T, GoK, visited the d3 (Dubai Design District) on Sunday, along with senior officials among others.

Majid Almari, CEO of Real Estate registration and services Dubai Land Department, Govt of Dubai received the minister and had a discussion for future collaborations pertaining to various initiatives.

"d3 enables disruptive thinking to create a world of endless possibilities through beautifully designed spaces and unique community offerings. Taking inspiration from d3, the Karnataka government has the objective of setting up a design district to an extent of 100-150 acres in Bengaluru. Along with this the government also wants to organise 'Banglore Design Festival' as the world's largest design festival" the Minister explained.

    He just wanted to show that he had been to Dubai on tax payers money and acknowledging that Bangalore is far behind. It's just a dream and in reality it will take 20 years even if he wants the infrastructure to be developed like Dubai.

    Our great minister C.N. Ashwath Narayan, the Minister for IT/Bt and S&T, GoK gone to dubai to copy and paste something from Dabai. But before that he told them he can help in many things including waste management. Intelligent people of our state try something of your OWN. Don't copy others this is a common feature of us!

    first tackle the traffic problems in banglore ..to reach anywhere its a pain..if you have 10% of the vision of dubai you will succeed..just look at the metro rail network and the flyovers in dubai and the quality of construction .. and look at our flyovers ..its the same companies who work but in india 50% of the money is swallowed by politicians and quality is compromised

    The middle eastern nationals do not consider the Indians 'you know who' as 'real ' . No matter how much the INdians have called and screamed that they are 'brothers' , BUT to this day the arabs have not acknowledged it. The great scholar Muhammad Al Arifi has said it very clear.

    Arabs don't own Islam, each and evert Muslim is messenger of Islam. No scholar is bigger than the Prophet who said Arabs have no superiority over non Arabs and vice versa. Also, If you follow every Friday prayer sermon yoi'd know what is in it. Muslims don't follow scholars, we follow Quran and Sunnah. however, been born and brough up with Arab friends i've never heard anyone saying this. Only few Indian crooks believe this BS

    Only wasting money by going on foreign trips and learning things from Dubai. Dubai or UAE is a artificial place created in a desert. There is no much of flora and fauna in the country like India. Land is owned by the ruler not like ours which is a democratic system.
