July 31, 2014, By S Ranjita

The usual and mundane life will be disrupted on Thursday, August 1, 2014 in the city of Bangalore.

The autorickshaws will go off roads, restaurants will be shut  and there’s an uncertain doubt about the functioning of the bus services and various multiplexes.

The Kannada Organization has declared the “dawn to dusk” Bangalore bandh to protest against the increasing violence committed upon women and children across the city.


Schools are likely to be closed, services in government offices are likely to be disrupted as the band is backed up by the Karnataka Government Employees Association, which consist of a member group of 45,000 people, including government school teachers.

However, the court is expected to function on a usual basis.

Vatal Nagaraj, head of a pro-Kannada organization said that he needs everyone’s support in curbing the violence against women and children across the city.

If people violate the bandh and go for usual activities such as film shows,shooting, the organization will immediately take some action.He also mentioned that it is the image of the city which is being tarnished under such criminal acts.

However, the government has not declared any holiday. The private schools have been shut so as to maintain the safety and security of the children.

Similar situation persists with the colleges. Exams have also been post-poned. The MBA fourth-semester examination is now scheduled to be held on August 5, the Karanataka Secondary Examination Board’s I DEd which was scheduled to be held for Thursday will now be held on Friday.

The band is unofficially declared by the Karnataka pro organization. However, it is upto the individuals of the public platforms to take their final call on it.
