Baadal Nanjundaswamy is the 13th human to have stepped on the surface of the moon. Co-incidentally his feat comes on the 50th year anniversary of Neil Armstrong, who was the first man to walk on the lunar surface.
During the Apollo missions 12 people landed on the moon, and now Nanjundaswamy, who is a painter by profession created history by becoming the 13th man to walk on the moon and the first Indian.
Baadal Nanjundaswamy, in his evidence posted a stunning 3D, 56 second video on Facebook where he was seen walking on craters of the moon. The video has taken the internet by storm.
In what appeared to look like the moon with craters, you may have realised that the backdrop is actually a street in the Indian city of Bengaluru filled with potholes. You may have also noticed, an auto drive past him and residential buildings and shops on the side of the roads.
In his caption, Nanjundaswamy wrote “Hello👋 BBMP Commissioner”. He wanted to bring to attention the poor condition of the road to the civic body of the city, the BBMP.
Users were amused by the idea and the efforts Nanjundaswamy took to maybe “make the government work”.
Baadal Nanjundaswamy, has often used his artwork to attract attention of the civic administration.
In June, Nanjundaswamy planted a life-sized crocodile in the middle of a street in Bengaluru after civic authorities failed to repair a pothole. In 2018, Nanjundaswamy had drawn a cobweb around a pothole to help civic authorities notice it.
