New Bamboo Bazaar





























Which Drain? What Nallah? Series.
Collecting Smiles In The City Market Gujli.


The Gujli or New Bamboo Bazaar (locally called as Bumboo Bazaar) sprouted and flourishes next to the drain that passes through the heart of the city. This drain lies downstream from the large tank that stood where the Sri KR Market or City Market now stands. 

It's pretty narrow here and goes on to become the wide grape-juice river that flows through Shantinagar, Mico, Adugodi and NGV. Luckily, the smell from the drain fails miserably in wiping off the smiles of the people (smile also works here when you want to bargain) who work over and around the drain. 

It's  a great place to collect what Incredible India biggest attraction - Our Billion Dollar Smiles. 


Full drain series here.

Thank you all.

Actually, my language skills suck too. Luckily, 'smile please' works on Bangalore streets. :)
