Bengaluru, popularly referred as the IT capital of India has been struggling with bad roads, heavy traffic jams, polluted lakes and various other problems. Though the denizens often complained about these problems to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), their problems were never addressed.

Fed up with BBMP, a local artist, Baadal Nanjundaswamy and other artists took up it upon themselves by using their art and imagination and tried to wake up the BBMP for addressing to their problems.

Overnight, in order to focus attention towards the problem of commuters, the artist ensured that striking 'scary crocodiles' to 'gigantic anacondas' appeared on the city's water-logged and pothole-ridden roads.

In other news, Bengaluru will be witnessing its civic body polls on 22 August and only the results would tell if the crocodiles and anaconda on streets had an effect on voting.

Here are some of Nanjundaswamy's works that will amaze you for sure:
