Bengaluru – The Beauty and the Beast

by Geetha GT – Bengaluru – “The Garden City” as it is called, is certainly missing its greenery essence. And in conjunction with a current population of 12.3 million, rising air pollution is suggested to be causing lung problems in students, as said by a survey.

Change is crucial, but at what cost? A transformation like what Bengaluru has gone through makes every person’s heart freeze as it changes from the garden city to a concrete town. To observe this journey back in time, see how landmarks in Bangalore well-known today appeared seventeen years back. These images also show how significantly sites have changed and how time has distorted the city and its public.

So, here is a travel back in time portraying a few places of Bengaluru’s changeover from The Green City to The Concrete Jungle.
