bangalored means different … the most common definition today is when jobs are ported from US to bangalore, the US people call this Bangalored

I guess it’s time for a re-definition from an Indian perspective :-)

Actually, the word Bangalored refers to people who have been laid off from a multinational because their job has been moved to India.
