A Banged Up Lore -Pothole Se Pothole Tak

Isn’t it amazing that after near about 70 years of Independence, engineering authorities in Namma Bengaluru haven’t yet mastered the art of constructing level roads to prevent water stagnation….

Or do they don’t want to construct level roads ???

A road in the heart of the City… Koramangala…near Sony World Junction

Bitumen’s worst enemy is water… If water is retained… the bitumen comes apart… creating a beautiful pothole…

The concerned authorities salivate… for then there is a continuous cycle from Pothole—>Tar Road—–>Pothole….

It is said that when Rome was burning, Nero was fiddling….

 

It is also said that when Bengaluru was and is burning, leaders are sleeping…

 

Times change… History does not change much…History repeats itself !!!

The Mafiosi – A Bangedup Lore

Mr Honest… “Haathi Singh“… wanted to build a home… his own independent bungalow… in a decent locality if an Indian Metropolis…He hoped that his “authenti-city” would help him settle¬†in the “City…

 

A light hearted take of the events that follow.

He went to buy Sand… but had to deal with the Sand Mafia

He went to buy Wood… but had to deal with the Timber Mafia

He went to buy Cement…But had to deal with the Cement Mafia

He went to buy Ore.. But had to deal with the Mining Mafia

He went to buy Water…But had to deal with the Tanker Mafia

He went to apply for licenses.. But had to deal with the Touts Mafia

Fed up… he wanted to go home… but had to haggle with the Surge Pricing Transport¬†Mafia…

He was left pondering… what is the Government doing??

Little did he realize… that this is what Government’s are also¬†meant to do!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

R.I.P Lakes in Bangalore

Bengaluru, also known as Bangalore, was also known as the Garden City… with trees literally hugging each other….Lakes would make their presence felt, in almost every locality, and was home to many aquatic creatures and a wide variety of birds..

Rapid unplanned Urbanisation, a deaf and mute civic body¬†driven by blinding¬†monumental governmental apathy across parties has resulted in¬† a¬†“Bang-ed-lore” of today…

As of today…only tales can be heard… of what was once indeed a garden city…

The below photographs are taken with the hope of spreading awareness…that while many ill lakes continue to hog the limelight for froth, weeds and other poison spewing chemicals… there are many other lakes which are dying.. silently…away from the media and press limelight and governmental apathy…

Photographs P1 to P4 is the tale of a lake within the RMZ Eco-world premise, dying a silent death..

RMZ Eco world in Bellandur,¬†hosts¬†a wide range of world class premium companies.. All turning a blind eye to a not so pleasant sight of a dying lake.. An eye sore…Perhaps Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not applicable for lakes…

The Rich Adarsh Palm Meadows premise is adjacent to the this poor lake!!

Perhaps worthwhile pondering, what sort of world do we want to pass onto our younger ones?? A barren concrete jungle!! An Asthmatic Bangalore??
