The Double Helix
Have you noticed this sculpture on M.G.Road? Apparently it has been there for over 3 years during which time I have passed by this road at least a hundred times but never noticed this structure.
It is also because it is situated at the corner near the Bible Society where the road from Koshy’s meets M.G.Road and you need 4 eyes to concentrate on the traffic at this point.
On Sunday I was pleasantly surprised to notice it and luckily I had my camera with me. So I went across and this is what I found:
It is called the “Appl,ied DNA” and it was donated by Biocon to Bangalore city in 2003. Created by Yusus Arakal, It commemorates 50 years of the discovery of the double helical structure of the DNA and also marks 25 years of Biocon.
And for those interested the stone has information on DNA and Biotechnology too:
