India’s Greatness

by vivin

“India is Great” and “Avoid AIDS”. This is what the lorry in front of me proclaimed. “Horn Please, OK?” it also said.The lorry driver is sure that India’s greatness has everything to do with avoiding AIDS and sounding the horn at appropriate times.

Hulk Hogan towers over me on a billboard, advertising a Sari.

A serene cow and a beggar walk into the road. The beggar holds up his hand and traffic obediently stops while he crosses. Who needs traffic lights? The cow chews her cud and looks at the vehicles with her large, wet eyes before finally deciding to move on.

I love this place. I really do. Life is everywhere. Everything is Alive.
