Which Nallah? What Drain? Pictures of life along the banks of the drains in Bangalore.
Raja Kaluve (Primary Drain)
Like all Indian cities, towns and villages, it's the life that spills on to Benglur roads that make street photography interesting. While the source of most of this blog's pictures, the mains and crosses, form the arteries of the city, there's an important geographical feature that acts as the city's veins. The city drains. The main ones are called the Raja Kaluve and they are usually in the news when there's excess rain. However, these stinking, black veins filled with garbage, are no less interesting than the city roads. Its concrete lined banks burst with life and economic activity like this stretch of the Raja Kaluve, called simply as the 'Nallah' in Shivajinagar.
This is an open to elements 'kennel' that sells 'breed' dogs on the banks of the Raja Kaluve.
