I had a woeful parking experience a few weeks ago. I had been to a friends place close to BEML factory and we decided to have dinner @ Indiranagar. everyone knows how crowded Indiranagar gets during weekends, but this was a relatively quiet road close to one restaurant (I forget the name) and I missed the first turning after the restaurant (where I had parked on an earlier occassion) and happened to find a quiet spot in the second turning and parked in front of an old house (not in front of a gate) opposite another which was under construction. There is a good 8-10 ft gutter + footpath in front of the wall. When I returned after dinner, I was aghast to see that the entire front windscreen had wet mud all over - someone had actually splashed wet mud all over the front windscreen. The watchman in the opposite house said that this had been done by the occupants of the old house since they did not like anyone parking in front of their house. He was helpful enough in providing a bucket of water to wash off the mess and was promptly rewarded with a Rs. 10 note. Now I dont know whether it is true that it was the occupants of the old house or the watchman who did this (knowing that he will be rewarded for his good deed), but this is such anti-social behaviour.

I mean people like having their property prices escalate due to the fact that the area is more commercial, but dont want to put up with the people who help their property prices escalate.

i know it's truly wretched behavior to do that.

but then, i don't think people would like their places getting too commercialised - property value hike or not. many peaceful localities in malleshwaram are now a nightmare, and that's just a sad story for families that don't intend to sell their houses off.

I live on the parallel road to CMH road, so you can guess the kind of parking on my street.

I dont care about the property prices going up as I am NOT selling my house !!!. The Shopowners are the only ones that gain out of this commercialism. We residents suffer - Indiranagar is a small place - due to ppl parking in front of my house/street in dont have parking for my own cars. Not to mention the noise (esp. central locking sirens , horns, etc) & other problems....

So next please remember that its a residential area, we live there, its our home so we don't need to "put up with the people who help their property prices escalate". I'm sure you wouldn't too it were YOUR HOME.

OT: bangalore has become a money-minter's paradise. push out the pensioners, push out the residents. commercialisation of a place that was never designed to be a metro has made one of the best cities deteriorate beyond recognition.

just felt the need to ramble, when thinking about all the driving, traffic and parking woes here. sorry for going off course.

hey believe me, I do understand. I was not causing a nuisance (no central locking sirens, horns, etc) by parking there. But I dont expect anyone to get hostile like this.

Talking of parking and the likes in Bangalore, did anyone come across the order which was passed a few days back, stating that from now on, watchmen cant stop visitors from parking their vehicles inside apartment complexes (parking lots). Visitors vehicles being parked on the road sides cause the roads to be blocked, and hence this ruling.

It would take more than an order to stop these morons.

It also talked about all apartment complexes will have to remove those signs quoting "Visitors parking not allowed"
