At the beginning of the video, you can see an astronaut walking on the surface of the moon, but gradually as the camera pans away, you can see the vehicles passing by and realise that this is just the state of the roads in Bengaluru. Clever indeed. Are you curious to know about the man behind this idea?
The potholes are increasing in number & growing in size. In many parts of Bengaluru what is left of the roads is being dug up either to lay cables or pipes. There is no co ordination between agencies & no 1 bothers to repave after digging so we have dangerous pot holed roads!— Geetha Rajashekhar (@GeethaRajashekh) September 2, 2019
Meet Baadal Nanjundaswamy, the artist from Mysore who was responsible for making the video.
He posted the viral video on social media, in order to highlight the problems that people of Bengaluru face every day.
He further added, "Earlier, I had painted on a pothole in the road and posted it on social media. The civic authorities fixed it immediately. My experience so far has been good."
