Pedalling back to the golden days 30.11.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
This photograph was taken at Ramnarayan Chellaram College when I was in final year section B. BCom was a two-year course under Mysore University after one finished intermediate (called PUC today). Bengaluru, at that time, had only four renowned residential layouts as opposed to today, namely Malleswaram, Basavanagudi, Chamrajpet and Cantoment (called Bangalore Dandu due to the population of the Army cadre). All of us students used to cycle to college. I loved riding my new Raleigh cycle which had a hand/ speed brake and a brass holder for the kerosene lamp in front; the dynamo for cycle light had not yet been invented. We were also required to purchase a cycle licence costing Rs 3.50. This is a large sum compared to our college fees which was just Rs 9 for 6 months. There were very few cars on the roads and petrol cost only Rs 2 and 11 paise for five litres. I remember only three students drove a car to college. One of them was D H Guru who was in my class. Everyone knew Guru as his father was then a ...

Hebbal flyover: Minor surgery leads to major decongestion 29.11.2016 deccanherald.com
To justify the costly steel flyover on Ballari Road, the state government always had a ready rationale: Heavy traffic congestion at the Hebbal flyover. But by just throwing open a three-lane stretch from Esteem Mall to the flyover ramp towards KR Puram on Monday, the decongestion has already begun. The message is clear: Traffic at the junction can be streamlined by a minor surgery of Hebbal flyover and an upgrade of the approach roads. On Monday, the first of the upgrades took effect. The moment peak-hour traffic was allowed on that stretch from Kempegowda International Airport towards the flyover, the congestion visibly dropped. Motorists noticed a big relief from the bottleneck effect. To appreciate that feeling, consider what was happening till last week: Motorists heading towards the city on a 14-lane road find the width reduced to 12 lanes at Columbia Asia Hospital and further shrunk to eight lanes at Esteem Mall. The traffic builds up, culminating in massive congestion at the flyover. What next? ...
