Makkala Koota Circle, Chamrajpet






When he was a little boy,  Chamrajpet Charles used to stand under this Elephant Slide, every summer vacation, and wonder: This Elephant is just like my favourite Uncle Marvin. Big, black, blue and silent from all the thulping from Aunt Mildred and his 13 children, with their running noses. All of them screaming, climbing and sliding all over him!

This slide is at Makkala Koota playground, Chamrajpet. Every generation of kids in this part of Benglur would have spent their summer vacation in this park, shaded by majestic trees, including Charles, if he was a real.  

Listen to Radio One's Chamrajpet Charles here.
