As the Namma Metro project takes shape in front of our eyes, two contrasting images from two contrasting locations in Bangalore. The first, from in front of the pristine Vidhana Soudha in the heart of the City on a rainy day, with the statue of B.R. Ambedkar barricaded, as work goes on underneath. And the second, from the chaos in Yeshwanthpur, with a million railway and electricity lines seemingly criss-crossing the track overhead.

If only someone could do this to save our State
“No free left” for residents of a famous highrise
Remember the helmets when it rains (or shines)
At Anil Kumble circle, a sharp googly to KSCA
In the darkness of night, a ray of light at 19:12:30 hours
The biggest day in the history of Bangalore?
Do not try this at home (if you have a few bogies)
From the BEML end, right arm over the wicket
The giant violin-box hanging above ‘Parades’
It’s still not here, but it’s already kind of here
Yes, it’s for real, and it’s purple and off-white
4 cars, 3 SUVs, 8 bikes, and 16 autorickshaws
Oh God, what have they done to my M.G. Road
Saturdays, girlfriends, popcorn and other memories
Every picture tells a tale. Babu‘s can fill a tome.
Not a picture that will make it to Lonely Planet
Amar, Akbar, Antony. Or Ram, Robert, Rahim
Only a low-angle shot can convey its great girth
Lots of work overground for an underground rail
The unsung heroes in the dreams of Bangaloreans
