Common Man – The Copy Cat

If I were to ask “How many roads do you remember that don’t have a huge commercial Ad or a very public display of political gratitude in the form of a hoarding?”, would any one road crop to mind? To be frank, I find it difficult to think of one and looks like things ain’t getting any better. The commercial Ads can still be pardoned to some extent, as they do end up putting some money into the exchequers, but what about the political vandalism?

With this kind of apathy and lack of action towards the guilty, no doubt the common man takes a leaf out of the politician’s book and does some cut&paste job of his own!


This was/is seen on the service road near the Marathahalli flyover that leads towards KR Puram. How difficult can it be to call the number of the culprit, which the culprit himself has so graciously provided and fine him a couple of thousand rupees and make him clean up his artwork?!

    All this is part of the ‘swalpa-adjust-maadi’ spirit of Bangalore.

    It might sound controversial but swalpa-adjust-maadi is the Hindu way of life.
