The Railway Station

Looks like the Okalipuram entrance to the Railway Station is going to remain makeshift forever. Although several trains depart from platforms 6 to 10 these days, the amenities continue to be non-existent and navigating your vehicle through that entrance continues to be a nightmare. No pre-paid auto/taxi facilities are available, no restrooms, and the shelters that cover the platform are far narrower exposing passengers to the vagaries of nature which seems to be nudging the limits at both ends in Bangalore in recent years. In comparison the Chennai railway station, now equipped with Wi-fi, no less, is extremely passenger-friendly. And one can no-longer crib about step-motherly treatment by the Southern Railway either, Bangalore now falling under the South Western Railway headquartered in Hubli.
