    @ Deshbhakt, Mangalore Well said !. I have not passed from Bantwal city of late but as far as my memory goes to 60's, I had noticed some roofs of tiled houses projected (1feet) above the traffic road and the roads used to be so narrow.

    Some houses on this stretch are on the road edge with the step right on the road when you cross the threshold. With road widening work heavily going on, haven't these people got eviction order ? Burden on taxpayers for compensation, now the case will drag on.
