As D-day nears for Namma Metro to really become ours, new coaches arrive by road at the Byappanahalli metro base, to be picked up by cranes and placed on track (top). In the picture below are the new coaches stripped of their wrapper, and ready to roll out any day soon. Both pictures were shot on the eve of Makara Sankranthi 2011.

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
