From the BEML end, right arm over the wicket

 

As D-day approaches for the launch of metro rail services in Bangalore, a worker takes a breather as the track awaits finishing touches at Anil Kumble circle on M.G. Road on Tuesday, while at the other end of the pitch, bogies are organised at Byappanahalli metro base on Thursday.

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
