Bengaluru, July 26: The two-day Bengaluru bus strike may have caused more trouble than joy as office goers face the brunt of reaching office late. However, what strikes the most is the drama that unfolds on empty roads.

From protesting politician to BMTC and KSRTC staffers enjoying their day offs on the pavement of the bus depots, one can see a plethora of characters utilising the roads in the best possible way.

It's the season of cricket. Forget the Lords, you can see some of the greatest shots right here by our good old drivers and conductors on strike. That, however, does not disturb the sleeping beggar on the pavement.

KSRTC and BMTC bus staff is resorting to indefinite strike demanding hike in wages. On 25th and 26th July almost all the buses were cancelled.
