BULLDOZERS often make the headlines in India’s media circles nowadays but not for the right reasons. In a number of states ruled by the Hindu right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), properties of people belong to the minority community and accused of rioting have been targeted by the giant machine. Such use of bulldozers has been questioned at various quarters but debate has continued over the action.

Amid all the negative publicity that the machine has got, one person in the central state of Madhya Pradesh decided to bring it some good publicity.
