For the past few days, I happen to see this senior citizen near the Silk Board Junction. I am sure people commuting between BTM Layout and Silk Board Junction (Bangalore), would not have missed him. His actions are very animated. With a whistle in his mouth, he prompts the vehicles other than public buses that try to stop near the bus stops. He also guides vehicles on the traffic to streamline. I guess he must be self-appointed traffic regulator. Hope the traffic authorities make a note of him and recognize his work in hot sun and pollution. Like you, I was reminded of the Traffic Ramaswamy at Chennai who is a senior citizen and traffic regulator. More on traffic ramaswamy here.
