Viral 'moon walk' video triggers road repair work in Bengaluru
Bengaluru : Days after a 'moon walk' video made by a city-based artist Badal Nanjundaswamy of an actor dressed in astronaut gear walking on the road that looked like moon’s crater-filled surface vent viral on social media, the BBMP has initiated road repair work on the badly damaged road in Tunganagar.
BBMP Commissioner B.H. Anil Kumar, taking cognisance of the video, instructed jurisdictional engineers to repair the road at the earliest.
In the viral video, 40-year-old Nanjundaswamy is shown walking cautiously on a moon like surface, as the video moves forward passing vehicles come into frame and then suddenly the whole perspective of the video shifts to the sad state of road.
Though the artist intended to shake up the civic agency from its slumber to fill-up the potholes, the video footage went viral on Twitter, provoking adverse comments galore for the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for its apathy in fixing the roads.
The video ended up being an instant viral thing on the social media as India is looking forward to actually land on the Moon in coming days as a part of Chandrayaan 2 mission.
