Why is it that many of us lack manners and consideration. Is it the way we were brought up or we display our pushiness in minor things when most other things are beyond our control. Is the nature of Bangaloreans changing?
Usha Vaidyanathan writes about a fusion performance by Dr L Subramaniam, Ambi Subramaniam, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Ernie Watts and Corky Siegel at Chowdiah Memorial Hall, earlier this year, disturbed by some obnoxious members of the audience.

The doors were closed at 7:05 and the invocation began. Just as it was ending, there were loud knocks on the doors and we could hear people shouting to be let in. Apparently they had passes and so they demanded entry as a right. They barged in and decided to block all the walkways making it uncomfortable for the performers and those seated particularly at the ends of rows.
Some of them spoke loudly on their phones while trying to locate their friends who were already in the hall. And despite repeated requests from the organizers NOT TO, some people started taking pictures on their phones and cameras and some were even recording the performance using their phones. It was impossible to relax and enjoy the lovely performances with such irritants all around.
