Bandh Update > Successful Insecurity!!!

As we walked around 100ft Road and Airport Road we could see a total shutdown of the city…as if there are no people, vehicle and priorities …here are some of the glimpses captured along…

Cricket, the favorite pass time and roads turning into playgrounds makes it irresistible…

The 100ft Road, 12th Main junction was completely deserted….


Major showrooms tried putting nets around the premise to protect glass…

Shops remain closed with tightened security…

Police presence in identified area’s…


Airport Road vehicles, no traffic and thus no noise…

Major shopping area’s on airport road remained deserted…


Bus stops, petrol pumps were empty…

Reuter’s office totally netted and secured…

Roads turn playgrounds…

Travelers have had a tough time, they had to carry the luggage and walk miles…

Hotel Leela kept the gates closed and guests kept strolling in the premise…

Police kept petrolling the roads being vigilent…

Autos disappear one spotted with a Kannada flag …

– Must say a good presence of police most of the locations…and patrolling underway…
– A good breather for the city as there are far less vehicle emissions and absolutely no traffic noises…

    Wow, this is brilliant. Thanks for all the photos. You’ve certainly done a better job than all the TV channels combined :-)

    There are a couple of pics in there that look exactly like Albuquerque, N.M.! :O
    The ones showing the motorway (?)off-ramp and the Kid doing headstands, in particular.

    I just spent one of the most remarkable days at home. I can’t for the life of me remember a quieter day on my busy street at Hanumantnagar. It reminded me of a Bangalore long back gone in the mists of time, when life flowed at a gentle pace and we had time for the more leisurely pursuits of life like potting a few plants in the kitchen garden. Thanks Bundh!

    Really good posting.. Wish we get more bandh days in Bangalore! Let there be more disputes over river waters – Kaveri, Kabini, Kapila, Arkavathi, Vrushabhavati (now that one should be interesting)….result would be a quieter, cleaner Bangalore! Someone also should come up with a ward bandh after-hours – based purely on quarrels at the BWSSB water-pumps (katte-jagala)..
