A walk in the High Grounds of Central Bangalore

I decided to take some photos on the walk between my bank and my office to highlight the state of sidewalks, called footpaths here. On another day I'll emphasize the traffic, but today we'll concentrate on the sidewalks, with a few buildings here and there.
The road outside the office, Ali Askar Road.
Turning the corner.
At least there are trees left here.
But one must be vigilant, given the sad state of the sidewalks, which actually are more properly defined as drainage covers.
A lovely convent. Yes, a convent of cloistered carmelites!

There are a few residential houses, although the point here is the hand pushed cart of the street cleaner.
The garbage along the way is quite unattractive.
The trees come in handy to hang wires and put up announcements, along with providing oxygen and shade.

The footpath here is actually quite wide.
All the handier for dumping garbage ...
or providing a gathering space ...
or an eating place.
A feed in drain, unfortunately clogged.
Some nice shade for bicycle parking.
The regional development authority. Makes you wonder how they will help direct growth in the Bangalore Metropolitan Region when there are piles of garbage in front of their office

Classic ad, posted on tree.
More ads, posted on an electrical box.
A stretch in good shape, on Millers Road.
One of the office buildings, nearby, with some familiar names.
The parking lot and entrance to that office, NOT so familiar a sign.

Hi very much useful info u shared,here is something that may be useful to you, Office space for rent in Bangalore must include all the quintessential requirements that will help the organizations to come and work at ease. Therefore, you have to spend a lot in the infrastructure and its maintenance before letting it to offer to the tenants
