Indiranagar 100ft road hurtles towards disaster

It was in September 2003 that I last visited this road. A 100ft wide and a kilometre-and-a-half long green paradise cocooned under the canopy of massive rain trees, its entire length. Over the years several residences have given way to offices. Still the road was very quiet and placid with traffic sailing smooth. Apparently in the last few months, things have taken a turn for the worse with loads of shopping arcades, cafes, restaurants and ATMs having sprung up on this thoroughfare. While the shopowners rejoice at the potential for business, residents bemoan the congestion, pollution and destruction of green life that this unchecked urbanization has brought with it. Read the Bangalore Times' report.
