If you ask me to vote for the worst place to stay in Bangalore city, I don’t have to think even for a second. It’s called Ramaswamy Palya near Kammanahalli and its surroundings. The entire area is dusty and dirty due to the unpaved roads, parking rules are willfully flouted and personal and environmental hygiene is at its lowest level. On one side, heaps of dirt and sand dug up from the storm water drains have been dumped on the sides of the road. On another side, construction material has been dumped leaving no space for people to walk or drive safely. (This place is the best site for scientists to study air pollution).

Apart from the general level of lawlessness in this area, a good number of unhygienic teashops and meat stalls remain an eye sore to the public. Respiratory disorders are the norm here. Municipal water supply is twice a week and those who are unlucky have to bear up with the hard water drilled from borewells. The re-construction of the Indian oil flyover has created further mayhem in this area. There is no bus service in the stretch from Maruti Seva Nagar to Kammanahalli and Kalyan Nagar as it has been diverted through Banaswadi Main Road. Apart from the dirty dust, people have to take a roundabout route to go to Indiranagar, and Maruti Seva Nagar. Autorickshaw drivers are making hay while the residents struggle to cope with the mess this area is in.

I think the responsibility of making this place unlivable lies with the city corporation, the government and the people who live here. There is no escape from this fact. This place is a disgrace to the city of Bangalore. I request the media to help the residents to rescue this place from the dilapidated state it is now in.
