Even as a new government comes to power, Bengaluru is becoming 'power-less'.

Several parts of the city are set to face power cuts over the weekend owing to metro work.

The outage will go on starting tomorrow till Monday.

Bengaluru has been plagued by frequent power cuts in recent months. People have been lodging complaints on Twitter since the BESCOM helpline apparently remained unreachable.

Baiyappanahalli is an unsurprising winner because of three reasons: its proximity to IT hubs in Whitefield, ITPL and Bellandur as well as to a railway station, and it's a terminal.

Peenya-Industry has lowest daily-ridership, indicating manual laborers' preference for buses.

One in every three children gets bullied in India, which creates a permanent blotch in the kid's psyche. Many a times, the afflicted children don't speak out, fearing backlash.

Tomorrow, Sanket Maharshi will embark on a Mumbai-bound journey on his cycle, talking to people on the way and understanding their experiences related to bullying.
