The Cantonment - Richard's Town Part 2

A Collection of all the Photographs on " India Hello, Bangalore Walla Namaskara!" - Part XXX

One of the few places in Bangalore that has retained or should we say the only place that one can find the atmosphere of the surrounding houses retaining the serenity and peacefulness of the 'Good Old Days', and an air of 'Pensioner's Paradise' in looks, though I say that no pensioners can afford to live here due to the land value. It's strange, that people pay so much for the atmosphere and surroundings, and at once demolish the same by building flats on the land, disharmony sets in! Afterall what was Bangalore famous for, are we preserving that famous thought? I have appealed for your attention!
