The "Cross and Garlic" of Bangalore

Cross and garlic are used to ward off vampires, who normally disguise as ordinary human beings. Cross and garlic protect the place from a vampire attack.

Kannada Paksha Flag is used by businessmen to ward off goons, disguised as Kannnada patrons, from attacking their establishments. The Kannada Paksha flag is supposed to protect establishments, which fetch business for Bangalore, from the attack of hooligans.

Well.. It is true! Btw, this doesn't mean that I have got anything against kannadigas or kannada. In fact, I regret not being able to speak kannada, and I think the normal kannadigas are one of the most tolerant people in this earth. But then, every good crowd has its share of goons, who use patriotism to cover their misdeeds.

Yes... I wanted to write more in the post with examples and pics. Thanks to a driver issue, I can't transfer some of the pics from my cell phone to my laptop.

Try to sort out the driver issue soon... so that you can share the experience behind this. Or if posting without the pics would give the complete picture, that also would do.
