People have started dealing with social issues in a much creative way. People take the help of social media to highlight the ongoing issues which reach a wider audience.
Recently a video went viral on the internet where a Bengaluru man uploaded a one-minute video. The video first seems like a man is walking on the moon but later the people realize the video is about a man walking on a street filled with potholes.
The man filmed the video to raise the issue of the poor maintenance of the roads in Bengaluru. The video was addressed to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).
The man was Baadal Nanjundaswamy who was in the video.
“Hello BBMP Commissioner,” Nanjundaswamy has captioned his video, adding hashtags #nammabengaluru, #streetart, #potholes among others.

Guys whoever was filming that, come on you broke the ice tooooo fast. First thought was wow walking on the moon really. What a laugh. Really good one. Did you send it to the Vidhan Sabha where they’re busy mocking themselves Kursi Chors. Let them see the reality

Haha….so now we know. Neil Armstrong never went to the moon. He just came to India and moved around the potholes!!

Why do we need to go to the moon when we are making moon in our roads into moon.

The potholes are increasing in number & growing in size. In many parts of Bengaluru what is left of the roads is being dug up either to lay cables or pipes. There is no co ordination between agencies & no 1 bothers to repave after digging so we have dangerous pot holed roads!

Baadal is an artist that has highlighted many such issues from the past. He painted a life-sized crocodile in the middle of the street. He attracts the audience to create awareness about social issues.
