Erstwhile South Parade is Bangalore’s shopping and entertainment hub, along with nearby Brigade Road, Church Street and Commercial Street. Old-timers reminisce fondly about the grand avenue this once was. Many old landmarks have been torn down to make way for characterless glass buildings. The metro running over the road proved to be the proverbial nail in the coffin for MG Road’s beauty. Thankfully, some of the vibe still survives. Walk along and enjoy a few gems that survived the massacre.

Progress (!) and the Metro have taken a heavy toll on M G Road It is overcrowded, teeming with Cars and two wheelers and no longer the memorable promenade that it once was Attempts to make the Maidan side people friendly are commendable, but with access being difficult and often dangerous, much more thought and effort is needed .

It is one of the tragedies of the city that an iconic landmark, that was a synonym for sightseeing, a casual stroll, window shopping, making/meeting friends is now just a chaotic mish-mash of really heavy traffic, blaring horns, and hurried pedestrians trying to duck for cover from the oncoming cars, and what was a well known destination for Arts and...
