Hosur Road (Electronics City)








Temple of modern India

Thank you Chacha Nehru. Thanks to you, throughout independent India's short history, every free market thug, non aligned despot, communist looter, or self proclaimed king who visited Mera Bharat Mahaan using their tax-payers' money have been dragged to Bangalore to visit the temples of modern India. For a long time, the itinerary usually involved a visits to the industrial plants of the Garden City - HMT, HAL, BEL, and the other possible combinations of the shabd mala. This was usually followed by a trip to Lalbag to plant a sapling that lasted a little longer than their visits. 

While the visitor profiles haven't changed much, Benglur has. The only difference is that they are now  dragged to Infosys at Electronics City. And if they plant a sapling, it's usually within its green campus.  

And the pictures you see above are outside the campus. That's the Hosur Road as seen on the reflective walls of the Infosys building. I think that it would be a good idea to make the visitors plant saplings on Hosur Road. 


The Which Main? What Cross? The Exhibition - Is on until May 31st.

These days, I think you'll find they turn symbolic sods for another flyover pillar rather than plant saplings. Nice photos though; somewhat surreal with those reflections.

i thought it was a very clean concept. The 'Temple of modern india'. and fluid texture of the reflections matched perfectly with the concept
