Bengaluru: Man digs up gold from the potholes at Bengaluru, media calls it Dhanteras miracle. It was not just another day of getting stuck at the Bengaluru Silk board traffic for Rajesh. Rajesh, 25, a software engineer from SIPRO, was waiting in the Silk Board traffic signal for the rain to stop so that he could go home. That is when he noticed something odd with one particular pothole.

Here is Rajesh, describing his miracle, “I was waiting at the Silk Board signal for 1 and 1/2 hours. I had parked my vehicle at one of the big potholes. I noticed something very hard in this particular pothole alone. So, I decided to start digging up the pothole with my laptop. And whoa! I had unearthed Gold from the pothole. I take this opportunity to thank Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), for such a wonderful miracle to happen in my life. I have something to gift my wife for Dhanteras now.”
