Not a picture that will make it to Lonely Planet

A cluster of temporary shacks of the unsung heroes in the dreams of Bangaloreans—workers of the Namma Metro project—stands against the backdrop of Bangalore’s most expensive piece of real estate, Mantri Towers, and the towerlights of the M. Chinnaswamy stadium, at Minsk Square.

This picture was shot from Visvesvaraya Towers in Bangalore on Friday.

Only a low-angle shot can convey its great girth

Lots of work overground for an underground rail

    This shows that poor and rick stay side by side, under diferent environment. No doubt, the poor people are unwanted at the place where grant buildings are constrcted. But, without them, you cannot build those big structures. During the construction period, those poor people enjoy pleasure of staying in thos uin-finished structures. It is the law of naure, where good-bad, poor-rich go hand in hand. But what an amount of risk they take while working in those big projects and they are not wanted once, the work is done. Silentely, they move to new project without having any feeling. That is life.

    This is the ugly, insensensitive, brutal face of capitalism.
