East West Divide

The neglected Eastern wall

The Western wall of Indira Nagar MRTS station has become quite an attraction with the colourful murals. The whole idea was to encourage non-discrimination and inclusivity with real images of HIV affected.

The Eastern wall on the other hand looks dull and neglected. Why this discrimination? The Western side attracts thousands of eyeballs especially from the IT corridor. So it is understandable that limited resources are used to achieve maximum impact.

Thank God, this is only an East-West issue. If it had been a South – North problem, some Tamil Nadu politicians would have raised Cain against Southern Railway and the Government!
