The Dark Side of the Moon

NO...this is not another depressing a way it is but not really.
This will depress every Bangalorean, my well-wisher or not.

The roads in Bangalore are a mess...its more like a little bit of road to sort of bridge the potholes.
Most roads are also not very well lit.
A rickshaw ride through these roads is not essentially different from a ride on a moon-buggy.
Bone-jarring, intestine-injuring rides.
Then something happened yesterday that shook me in my entirety...more on it here.

The papers screamed that a crane, in trying to avoid a pothole, ended up killing a woman.
Scary!! Very scary.

Maybe the potholes will be filled...maybe we have to wait for a new government for it.

But till then if you are coming to Bangalore (the IT capital of the country...IT = irritating Traffic)

Welcome to the Dark Side of the Moon.

well, with the non-existant govt busy filling its pockets, who has the time to fill the pot holes!They are really like open graves, waiting for ppl to lose lives in them.
