Can you see what’s strange about this building?

I have no clue why this should have been built in this way…it’s fascinating!

    Any theories about that sunshade and the light point?

  2. S Srinivasan says:

    Probably, the engineer might have planned to have another window in that place or a balcony or a stairway. At the time of construction, the idea would have changed and left the lintel in its place along with a light point!

  3. Deepa Mohan says:

    Looking at the sewage outlet from that point, my friend Prem Kudva feels that this was probably a bathroom window which got blocked up at a later stage of construction….so I agree with you Mr Srinivasan!

    That does not explain the Light Fitting on the lintel. Nobody provides a light point in such a place unless that is intended for a way to enter into or go out of the building. The sewage line indicates that a bath/toilet in the part could have been closed and shifted to the other side of the big window.

Theatre Review: “Credit Titles” by Bangalore Little Theatre

It was like a rare alignment of the planets: several factors come together to pull me out of my usual Ranga Shankara ambit for watching a play. I had not been to visit Bangalore International Centre, which opened a while ago in Domlur; Bangalore Little Theatre, as part of their "VP 80" festival, was staging "Credit Titles"; the play, written by Vijay Padaki, whose 80th birthday the festival marks, was based on a story by Vinod Vyasulu, an eminent economist whom I've known for a long time, as our daughters share a cose friendship dating from 1988. And last but…
