The giant violin-box hanging above ‘Parades’

A gaggle of eagles take a bird’s eye-view of construction of the metro railway station in front of what used to be Plaza theatre. The first phase of Namma Metro, from Anil Kumble circle to Byapannahalli, is scheduled to commence operations in January next year, and the 140 personnel who will operate services on the 7km route are now in Delhi undergoing training at Delhi Metro.

The Namma Metro photo portfolio

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
