This article deals with the question of what the night means to IT (information technology) professionals working in the Indian IT industry in Bangalore. In particular, it argues that the way IT work gets done (in India) demands a type of flexibility of an IT worker that‘forces’ him to rethink perceptions of working hours (in particular day and night shift). At the same time the article introduces the accounts of people who do not work for the IT industry, but have to deal with its impact on a daily basis. Their comments give us a deeper understanding of the working of this industry and the impact it has made on the city of Bangalore.
