Macwin Ian D’Souza, popularly known as ‘Mac Macha’ on social media, shot a video to highlight the poor condition of roads by comparing them with motor racing dirt tracks. In one of his reels on Instagram, he is seen riding his bike, jumping, dancing, and doing everything possible on the muddy roads.

The video has been shot at 12th Cross in Horamavu, East Bengaluru. It shows non-tarred, muddy roads with puddles and in less than two days, it reached over one lakh people.

“I was heading somewhere and the navigation led me to this road three days ago. The condition of almost all the roads in that particular area was the same. When I was shooting the reel, I myself witnessed a food delivery guy fall off from his bike due to the slippery road,” DH quoted him saying.

He even posted a few photos of the stretch, and users responded with similar photos from their localities.

The video garnered a lot of attention and even Gaurav Gupta, Chief Commissioner, BBMP noticed it and said, “I have asked the engineers to identify the exact location. There are some areas that have bylanes that pass through private property not looked after by the BBMP. Otherwise, our officials would have repaired them just like they attend to every other road. However, we will recheck this road and ensure that its condition is improved.”
