Residents of Whitefield and adjoining areas of Bengaluru have taken to social media to vent out their anger at civic authorities for the crumbling infrastructure in the area.

Although not as startling at suddenly encountering an anaconda rearing its head from a manhole, the memes and cartoons ridiculing the situation on Facebook for the last two months are nonetheless sharp and witty.

The latest meme to be uploaded onto a Facebook group called Whitefield Rising, is inspired by Interstellar.

Another meme ridicules transport minister Ramalinga Reddy finding just one pothole on a 25-km stretch of road during an inspection.

 

Whitefield resident Sreedhar has drawn several cartoons on the shambolic state of roads and lakes of Bengaluru.

“I had won a national level completion as a child artist. I had left painting due to responsibilities at my business. Seeing this infrastructure breakdown, I have started painting again after 20-25 years,” says B G Sreedhar.

It’s anybody’s guess whether the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike will take notice of these cartoons, or whether it has developed an immunity to embarrassment.
