Bangalore celebrates 60 years of Indian independence

As the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh launched the celebrations of 60 years of Independence from the ramparts of the Red Fort, Bangalore too had its own celebrations in different parts of the city and wore a colourful look with tri-colours waving everywhere.

Instead of watching the parade near MG Road, we decided to wander around the gallis of Commercial street. It was an unusually quiet day on the roads and quite a welcome relief to motorists!

Bangalore Metblogs also takes the opportunity to wishes all its readers a very happy I-Day.
