On top down under, a tale of a work in progress

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

    The enclave of Cubbon Park,Vidhana/Vikasa soudhas and the High court should have been retained as a no vehicle zone.
    The beauty of Vidhana Soudha, High Court and Cubbon Park is marred.
