Make it or Fake it: Anaconda follows Crocodile for a cause

Bengaluru potholes have crossed an ‘acceptable’ mark that it shouldn’t come as a surprise if a few monsters spawned in the city.

After Crocodile, a deadly anaconda reared its head out of the pothole in Mahanagara Palike in Bangalore.
But, relax! The anaconda was just a replica planted just to grab attention.

The Namma Bengaluru Foundation (NBF), a civic group working towards the betterment of the city, in a series of attempts to embarrass the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) decided to installed a gigantic in Yeshwanthpur to call the city’s attention to the issue of increasing potholes.

“There is humour, art, sarcasm in the craft, but more importantly, there is a deeper message in it that we are trying to deliver, said Sridhar Pabbisetty,” CEO, Namma Bengaluru Foundation.

Residents are worried due to lack of proper drainage systems which results in a rise in diseases like malaria and dengue because the stagnant water acts as a breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Installing the anaconda wasn’t an easy task as local massive fixture took two days to make as the fake animal did attract a lot of attention and as expected, the experiment garnered a lot of social media attention and sparked meaningful debates among the citizens.
