MM Road, East Ground





























The slogans on the walls of the maidan next to the Bangalore East station reflect the spirit of competition at the football tournament held here each year. The prize money can go up to Rs. 50,000 and the best player even wins what's called the Golden Boot. On holidays, the maidan is packed with different set of friends and teams, of all ages, playing tennis ball cricket and football but on a Friday morning, it's the playground of the local Madrassa.

I used to play cricket the whole day in this ground. My house was very close to it.

I think this ground is better known for hosting very interesting football matches than cricket. The annual, big tournament is held around Gandhi Jayanthi and those slogans are for the teams that practice here.
Another corner in Bangalore dedicated to a sport other than cricket :D

Like Bangalore Autodrivers I can only take you to places I like to go.
