1st Main, Sheshadripuram


14 Horses Remaining.
In its hey days, this Jatka Gaadi Stand situated on a prime piece of land in Palace Guttahalli had 40 horses powering it. When I pointed my camera at the corner of the stand where the drivers keep their personal belongings, one of them asked me not to draw attention to this corner where they do business. Land sharks are waiting to have this piece converted for other purposes. There are only 14 tired horses left to go and a few symbols, the Karnataka colours, moon and star, the Maharaja of Mysore stand guard.

It's there on borrowed time.

Like Bangalore Autodrivers I can only take you to places I like to go.
