We all love our “native”. As we are ravaged by urbanisation, for many of us, our originial homes dont feel like homes any longer. This post is about the case of the home of Old Bangaloreans – Basavanagudi.

The script of non-functional systems, morals is once again at the fore. Once again it is same story. Helplines, laws encouraging citizens to lend help to victims exists only on paper.
