The people that matter will continue to call Bhagwan Mahaveer Road as Infantry Road. Basaveshwara Circle is Chalukya Circle. And Sankey Road is well, Sankey Road!

So our CM is not interested in Bengaluru’s trees or its lakes, or its architecture, its history, its culture.
For the first time, I’ve booked the whole week for the festival. 3-5 films a day. The festival always gives me chance to get lost in a world that isn’t fake but isn’t real either. All this, for just ₹600!!! No kidding!
A number of questions are being asked and statements are being made by different people as a post-mortem of the incident is being carried out. But, how valid are those questions? Are we being reasonable when we ask a few things..? Have we asked all the right questions? Where are we as a society?
For the people, by the people, of the people. That’s democracy by the textbook. Very little of that exists today. …
