Bengaluru: Beda beda benki beda! Aveshakke nannannu bali kodadiri. Naanu nimma sevaka ( Don’t set me on fire. Dont target me for your anger. I am your servant).
This emotional appeal coming from a ‘red bus’ as KSRTC buses are popularly known as, has many feelings that is akin to human beings.
Whenever there is a bandh call or any protest, KSRTC buses are the first casualty. They are either stoned or torched by the hooligans, so blatant, they forget that the public carrier is at their service from 58 years.
To create awareness against such ‘burn all’ attitude, the KSRTC authorities have parked a fully torched bus with whatever remains to draw the people’s attention.
The posters with slogans all around in Kannada with the haunting images of buses damaged in violences is sure to strike the minds.
A wreath has been hung in the front as if to pay a requiem to the dead.
Hope it runs some sense in the mind of the anti-social elements.
