The influence of techno park and medical tourism has made a total change in Trivandrum,it brings out developments all over no doubt in it but as a side effect the living cost is also shooting up to sky high, minimum of Rs.50 needed for a descent breakfast in town now a days, the price of land rate of house rents flat price all ar at a very high level already and searching more more heights as the demand for that increases enormously as the paying capacity of such and such people are very high when compare to a 9-5 kind of employee.I remember the protests against the migrated persons, which happened in Bangalore and foreign countries like Saudi and all because of such volatile problems, lets hope trivandrum will not be like that.
