Bangalore may have become only the second modern city in the world to be turned into a verb – after Shanghaied, a word that broadly means to force –thanks to the outsourcing controversy.

What it means?

Bangalored adj. (said of a corporation, project, or employment) having been relocated to India; having lost business or employment due to such a relocation.

Click this link -->"Bangalored" is a verb which recently got added in the dictionary. A person is said to be bangalored if he lost his job because the work got outsourced to bangalore or any other city in India.

Lot of people in US got bangalored that it became an issue during the US presidential election. That's exactly when this word was coined. One such similar verb is "shanghaied" which means kidnapped.

Although it sounds like great, to hear that bangalore has a verb in its
name, the disappointing factor is that it has a negative meaning.

So Dont use the sentence that "I am being Bangalored"
