    Bangalore civic body installs cameras in park to keep eye on couples

    [​IMG]

    BANGALORE: The municipal body in Bangalore, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), has installed CCTV cameras in a park in Basavanagudi area of the city to "keep a watch on public display of affection and reduce social menace".

    The move was spearheaded by mayor B S Satyanarayana who is the corporator for Basavanagudi.

    Couples getting cosy will be monitored and thrown out of the park. The civic agency plans to install cameras in all other parks across Bangalore to reduce what it calls "anti-social activities".

    "Bugle Rock is a pilot project. We will install cameras in other parks also. These are tourist spots. Many people visit the Bull Temple and the park. Lovers getting cosy in public places are anti-social. These anti-social activities put off tourists. After the cameras were installed in Bugle Rock, we have been able to reduce PDA by 80%," Satyanarayana told STOI.

    The decision has led to adverse reaction in some quarters with this being seen as moral policing and an invasion of privacy. Sadhana Sanjay, a second-year law student of Christ University, said: "We must fight this. People need to be aware about their rights and laws in their country. Nobody has a right to tell me what I cannot do in a free country like India."

    Sumathi Nagendra, homemaker and resident of Basavanagudi, agreed with the decision. "Such display of affection is a growing nuisance in parks. To some extent, a deterrent like this is required. I welcome the move," she said.

    "Nobody is insane to go beyond limits to get 'cosy' as the BBMP thinks. Second, it is not what the BBMP is mandated to do. Who are they to ask couples to get out of the park if they hold hands or give a peck on the cheek. If the BBMP must install cameras, it must do so in buses and at bus stands to provide women safety," said Samarpita Samaddar, a resident.

    Earlier this year, the state horticulture department had installed CCTV cameras in Nandi Hills which is a popular tourist spot. The department claimed it was done after receiving complaints from visitors.

    Why can't couples get a room instead of going to the park to make out? Why do it in a public place with children and senior citizen around?

    Simple! Park/beach is free, room costs money.

    I took my Eight year old nephew to a very famous Public park in delhi to play football.

    After walking few steps in the park we saw a couple.Actually a partially naked couple smooching and licking and sh8t.......

    My nephew asked me about the things they were doing?
    Now tell me what the hell I am supposed to answer to my 8 year old nephew???
    If they would have been just kissing then I would have made some story and love and things to explain it to him but they were naked.

    This is bullsh8t these couples should be hanged publicly.....

    So glad to see that at least one Indian city finally got its priorities straight. Surprising it took them so damn long, but better late than never. Now that Bangalore has resolved all the problems of things like poverty, education, malnutrition, women's rights, infrastructure, water supply and healthcare they can finally secure the most important Indian asset... sanskaari values. Also now that couples will no longer be allowed to "get cozy" in parks, all the men who were unable to get women will no longer be compelled to rape random girls and tourists. Who said two birds can't be killed with one stone?

    Just love to listen you guys preach on our lives and our values! How novel the idea of decent neighbourhood is to you, isn't it? After all you cannot imagine a place where bedroom affairs aren't publicised?

    Well, for us backward people park is after all for simple boring recreations like - unwinding after a hard day's work for a man, walks for elderly, playing games for kids, having a family outing etc. Then for you, it's for other recreations perhaps. We neanderthals actually do not prefer our youngs to be exposed to the naked truth of life so early and so openly.

    If the couples aren't getting cozy in parks, then the rapes would grow? Huh!!!

    May be then you need more parks w/o cams in your country???

    Brothels for lovers, right.

    Virginity is strong in this one.

    Hotels don't allow "couples" to stay like that and I think being in India you can easily sense that. :lol:

    Have you seen the film "Jab we met"? Remember the scene when Kareena and Shahid takes a room in a small hotel? :taunt:

    Some parks have become a breeding point for illegal activities because of the behavior of these couples and turned into open brothels since couples can't keep themselves in limit.All Hijras,goons,druggists etc are there who are ready to pounce on the couples.

    In Delhi we have famous "Buddha Garden" whose name is so famous.

    I am baffled by this move by BBMP. Being a Bangalorean, I know the problems of Bangalore very well, and the ineptness of the BBMP. There are a million critical things to focus on. Underpasses and drainage systems get clogged and partially flooded in heavy rain. Garbage collection is a problem. Badly designed underpasses are planned to be demolished now and long elevated expressways are planned to be created in their place. Stray dog menace in some localities.

    Leave all the infrastructural issues - there are issues with law&order. Chain snatching etc. in early mornings in some residential areas for example. There are many more examples.

    And with all these issues, what does BBMP do? Cameras in parks to monitor couples? Is this the biggest priority for the BBMP now? What is wrong with these people?

    India is a dictatorship of sanskaar.

    The so-called family and sanskari people have problem with anything. They raise objection everywhere because their "freedom" is violated if some people want to get in a romantic mood. Go to hell the rights of couple who want to let go of the stupidity around them and enjoy some time together.
    In the end freedom and rights are only for the sanskari people, couples are non-sanskari and hence they should be hounded,imprisoned or flogged because they just want some moments of love.
