TIPU SULTAN is very much of a hero in Karnataka. He inflicted a crushing defeat on the British and the Colonel Bailey mentioned in the sign above (which is now below the sign) got thrown into a dungeon, below even the Bailey below.
But yours truly, I very much hope, won’t end up in a dungeon when I fry out to Bangalore on May Day.
I can’t pretend that I’ll get a sign put up on Airport Road, like this one for Sonia Gandhiji, when she visited the pleasant city a little while ago. If you’re a pedestrian crossing Airport Road, you really take your life into your hands. I’m looking forward to being in the Silicon City yet again. Luckily the new airport hasn’t opened yet – it’s miles from where I’m going. ♥
