People fooled into climbing hill near Bangalore following April fool’s day

In Bangalore, following April fool’s Day on April 1st, an FM channel made 6000 people climb a hill and in turn fooled them.

Popular actresses

Following April fool’s Day which is on April 1st, i.e., yesterday, an FM Channel fooled people unlike others.  It resorted to new idea and made an announcement.  ‘Our new studio is constructed in the Nandi Hills.  The opening ceremony is to be held on Sunday.  Celebrities as Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif are to participate’, said the announcement. 

Nandi Hills is situated 54 km off Bangalore.  The FM channel announced that the studio is to be opened atop the hills.  People forgot to verify due to eagerness of meeting actresses. Sunday, April 1st is the April fool’s day.

Many did not take efforts to verify the truth in the announcement that a new studio is to be opened, and that popular actresses are to participate.  Also, nobody took pains to judge whether it is an effort to fool them. 

The crowd that gathered

Yesterday morning at around 6 am, thousands gathered near foot of the hill.  The Nandi Hills is under control of Horticultural department. One has to purchase ticket to go up the hill.  As time passed, the area turned overcrowded. 

 The officials of horticultural department were surprised to see huge crowd. Usually on Sundays, there is heavy crowd.  But officials were surprised to see crowd which they had not witnessed in their lives.  More than 6000 people got tickets and climbed up the Nandi Hills. 

Only after reaching the top, people realized their folly.  There was no studio, and there was no sign of arrival of actresses.  As people realized they had been fooled, they silently moved off concealing fact that they had indeed been fooled. 

The special feature is that many came with family.  It was not alone the commoners who were fooled, but college students, software engineers and young couple were among the fooled. 

Tremendous collection

Yesterday, by just 3 hours, the horticultural department profited as much as Rs. 70, 000 through collection of entry fee and parking fee.    Since there was huge crowd within a short span of time, there was traffic snarl in the area.  Police had to struggle to restore normal movement of traffic.
