OTC Road, Cottonpet





Silver hair, gold ornaments and flowers.
A lady sells flowers, cotton and incense sticks outside the Hazrath Sharfudeen Shah Qadri Dargah on Old Taluk Cutchery Rd. But why is she selling it outside a dargah? That's because this dargah is a major stop for the Hindu Karaga procession, making it popular among both Muslims and Hindus.

I have a doubt to be cleared.........do you get to work on time ;-)
Jokes apart.....you truly have an eye for Bangalore....

Thank you.

Actually, I'm usually the first one to reach work. The detours add about 5 -10 minutes to my commuting time.

Gopal, just stumbled on your blog while surfing... Interesting. One suggestion though: the white letters on black background are difficult to read; so could you please make them bigger or make them bold, so the readability is enhanced.

Even if you don't take me where I want to go, I shall bookmark you!

You Do have an eye for the micr-bengaluru. I really like your sense of contrast. Have added you to the blog roll and all ;-)

Although I agree with Pradeep about the visibility!

Gopal M S said...

Thank you. I have increased the font size to improve readability. :) As of now, I'm in love with the black background.
