Old and new

Raheja Towers is less than a decade old - though it is on Mount Road, the facade was not very visible from the road, so it was almost as if it was staying aloof from the rest of the businesses on Mount Road.

Not any longer. The old shops and buildings which had blocked the passer-by's view of the glass-fronted building are being pulled down. Now I understand what someone told me a few years ago - "Do they think they are the BMW Headquarters or something?" Not a patch on it, of course!

Namasate! Down goes the OLD and up goes the NEW! Beautiful office building. I liked seeing your AMBASSADOR car posting from a few days ago. I enjoyed 5 weeks in INdia in Feb/March. Dhanyavadagalu!

@ Leif: Yes, this is one of the better buildings, despite the foreboding steel/glass look.
