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

    No overhead lines. The yellow tubes on the track are carrying the electricity.

    Autorickshaws ?

    If one looks at this picture carefully, the metro line looks like the divider between the natural and the concrete jungle :)

    That’s for Darshan to stand in between when trains are moving posing for camera at a low angle.

    …the reason for the delay?

    Let them clean up below train tracks first before it becomes a public urinal
