A Bengaluru Artist Placed A Fake Life-Sized Crocodile In A Pothole To Protest The City's Awful Roads
The authorities better take action soon or they'll have to deal with this casti-gator.
Bengaluru is one of India's largest and most modern cities.
But if there's one aspect that's a cause for constant concern to its citizens, it's the terrible state of the city's roads.
On June 18, artist Baadal Nanjundaswamy decided to call the authorities' attention to a huge water-logged pothole on the busy Sultanpalya traffic junction...
By placing a life-sized model crocodile bang in the middle of it.
With the pothole having been ignored by officials for over a month, commuters were more than happy to drive around Baadal as he prepared the exhibit.
Upon completion, he left the fake croc to chill in the pothole for a full 10 minutes as a crowd gathered around this exceptional protest.
This isn't the first time Baadal has highlighted the poor state of Bengaluru's roads with his art.
Exactly a year ago in 2014, he had drawn Yama, the Hindu God of death, around an unattended open manhole in the middle of a busy road.
Let's hope that the authorities pay heed to his concerns and do the city a solid this time.
