Bangalore is no longer a safe place. Especially in recent days the spate of crimes has increased leaps and bounds. It still continues unabated. Just yesterday there was a chain-snatching incident close to where I live.
A week or two ago I read in one of the newspapers about an incident in which two people on a bike stopped a guy in a car to ask for directions. The moment the car windows were lowered it seems that the bike guys hit him and robbed him of his belongings. That day I really wondered what state Bangalore had come down to.
Today, near the Town Hall signal, I had my car windows almost fully up. Out of the blue there is this guy who appears with a bunch of papers and a pencil in hand and knocks on my window. That recent incident in mind and not lowering my windows I asked him what he wanted. He said he was conducting a survey on AIR’s FM Rainbow broadcast. Before this could continue, the signal turned green – thankfully!
The survey could have been a legitimate one. The man could have been perfectly harmless. But, when you are paranoid (and with good reason for it) it’s wise to play safe.
