This is a creatively sarcastic attempt made by artists Pushparaj Appu from Namma Bengaluru Foundation and Baadal Nanjudaswamy to bring to task the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike which fails to take the quality of roads seriously. There are uncleaned potholes everywhere which prove to be dangerous during rains. A pedestrian may be sucked in and of course potholes provide breeding grounds for mosquitoes causing dengue, malaria and other diseases. The artists have been installing anacondas, crocs, severed human hands to jibe at the dismal attitude of the Palike towards road maintenance. And the sarcasm seems to work as is shown by the fact that all the potholes where the creations have been installed have been filled by authorities in record time.
