Bangalore artist creates crocodile pond to protest against poor civic facilities


A visual artist in Bangalore came up with a novel idea to draw civic authorities’ attention to a problem he’s been complaining about without any success.

Artist Baadal Nanjundaswamy has been frustrated by no response from the civic authorities to a large pothole and a broken water pipe on a main street of Bangalore. Unable to get any response, he decided to turn the pothole into a pond for a large artificial crocodile.

This is not the first time the artist has resorted this creative way of protesting against the poor civic amenities. Last year, he had turned a large manhole into a mouth of Yamraj, a sign that this was a death trap. This prompted the local authorities to swing into action and close the manhole without any delay.
