Mechanical digger cursed by coconut tree

WE SAID NO good would come of builders chopping down the lovely coconut tree that was next to the Examiner’s offices in Ole Bengaluru.

And it came to pass last Friday, according to reliable reporters from the 100 Feet Road. It is a well known fact that chopping down coconut palms in South India invokes a curse, and the builders are obviously double cursed because they decked a little Tulsi shrine too.

This all conspired to create a SNAFU on Friday when a bright and shiny mechanical digger got bogged down in the mud. This building project will be most interesting to watch as the weeks tick by.
