Remember the helmets when it rains (or shines)

As the date for the rollout of Namma Metro nears, workers fix the roof at the Byappanahalli station, in Bangalore on Monday.

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

    Namma Metro is out to fool people. The stairs to the station are not ready, construction material is all around the station, no thought given to parking of public transport. This is going to take people for a bigger ride than the CWG!

    hmmm Namma Bengaluru and Namma Metro both have become “Doorada Betta” for common man. Travelling charges certainly will be in the higher side because of the cost involved in Infra for Metro. Chennai’s suburban trains are really a lifeline for common man compared to this costly metro

    @Deepak,
    forget about Metro.. our BMTC/KSRTC loots people compared to TN/AP.
    Metro is also going to be the same…
