Who said imported technology cannot be band-aided? The flashy volvo buses are very popular in Bangalore. I see it full all the time. Looks like the fancy rear-view mirror has had some damage in this bus (the traffic in Bangalore is ridiculous). If the BMTC went to Volvo service center to repair it, they would probably have been charged a huge amount. Instead the fix seen in this picture probably cost a few rupees – bandaged with a cycle tyre tube. Ingenuity at its best.
I was torn between titling this post “Bangalore blues” or “The blue elephant walks in”. The above won. 🙂 Pic taken on Saturday. Mayawati, supremo leader from Uttar Pradesh is slated to visit Bangalore this weekend. Her party’s symbol is an elephant on a blue flag. The whole city had a blue look in the weekend.
On my way to one of my client offices, I pass through the BEML (Bharat Earth Movers Limited) factory in Bangalore. BEML also manufactures heavy goods rail cars, besides the huge earth movers they specialize in. (I think they are also manufacturing the coaches for the upcoming Bangalore Metro Rail).
