Well, what can I say. Politicians change their mind according to their whims or fancies. Else, according to their astrologers advise. Perhaps, Intelligence bureau reports. Perhaps, wife’s advise! Who knows.

All I know is that I was caught unawares for the inauguration, having marked July 15 on my calendar. Anyways, the ceremony was preponed for today morning and duty/conscience prevented me from sneaking off to cover the inauguration.

Still to make up for things, here’s a video preview of a sample ride on the road.

More pics coming up soon!

    Why are pedestrians walking on the flyover? Is it that much of a novelty? Are we that much starved for some quality in our lives? Of course, anything new in Bangalore, Rama Rao, Lalithamma, Abdul Sab, Mr. Singh, Mr. Agarwal and Doddaswamappa – have to traverse, review and comment on it!! That’s what you see in your nice video – a Salwar Kameez, a “Rao” with his hands behind his back, perusing other gawkers on the “ply-overu”

    @ Ferrari: I guess so…thats a good point. Unless, of course, youwant to check it out in the wee hours of the morning!

    @ Kris: the main flyover has been open…the other loops are yet to be complete. Check out todays TOI

    @ NParry: hmmmmmmmm. Btw, the flyover was inaugurated but it wasn’t open to the public FULLY when I traversed it! That’s why you don’t see too many vehicles on it!
