Sights and Sounds of Bangalore

17 Oct

Who says you can’t do two things at the same time !!

This traffic cop seems to be running traffic and answering his mobile. Bravo !! While he was doing this traffic all around him was running in all directions.

P.S. I was not driving

    @Vinay: lol
    @Manav: This is at the intersection of Kanakapura Road and a road coming up from whats known as the Monotype Road (also the road where Mindtree Consulting is).. so its Bsk 2nd Stage and Jayanagar 8th Blk intersection

    The poor guy stands around in traffic all day, doesn’t have a gas mask and oxygen cylinder for clean air, but has a cell phone. That’s Bangalore for you, in a nutshell. 😉

    He seems to be telling the motorists,

    I used to often blame the traffic police for not having the traffic controlled at the intersections, but thinking further deep, I admire them for their courage, and willingness (agreed that might be their job for bread and butter however) to stand midst of thousands of “moving” vehicles, and not sure who would run over him at any time. Does any one here his whistles and/or his voice even if he shouts? who would even notice when he is on road unless there was a better safer place for him to go around?

    @Ram: I have to agree with you there.. its a thankless and unsafe job.
