Pele in Gautampura?

The June 18, 2006 volume of The Week reports that

… the football crazy residents of Gautampura, (in Bangalore) have installed a statue of Pele, next to Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’s, in the local park.

Could not find the article on the net. The print version of the article has a photograph alongwith.

    The exact link to the article will help. If I’m not wrong, ‘Gautampura’ is in Ulsoor Bangalore and yes, the residents there are football crazy and capable of doing the ‘bust’ thing of Pele!

    Ravi: It’s not available online. Atleast not yet. I saw it on the print version.
