Binny Rest House Road






Territorial Pissing.


Roaming the streets clicking pictures brings you face to face with a lot of disturbing sights. Just before Ugadi, I was riding down a road parallel to Mysore Road, a few minutes after clicking the above image on Binny Rest House Road. On the narrow street was a man, completely still, face down and  lying in a pool of fresh blood, next to a Scorpio. It looked like an accident, but there wasn't a single person rushing to help. There was complete silence and shock on every single face watching from a safe distance. Traffic slowed, but didn't stop. I moved along too as a Police van came rushing in. Later I read that it was a gangster called Poone alias Narashimhamurthy who was lying in a pool of blood. Over the next two weeks, there was to be a number of gang related slayings across the city. And the weapon of choice - swords, like these territorial pissing painted on the walls by some wannabe gangsters with the usual 'rowdy' names.

Its sad to see that the youth of this country have nothing better in life. We talk about growing economy & blah............well captured & narrated series.

Brrr. Always heard of these things. never seen it. And what's worse are the mainstream Kannada movies acknowledging all this, as if saying, you have good intentions, then it is ok to pick up a sword.

Yes. The Kannada movie hero always takes revenge with a blunt weapon. :(
