On Cows

I thought it was a little wet over the weekend. According to the papers 140mm of rain fell into Bangalore over the last four days. River’s looking a bit fuller at least, if not a bit dirtier.

Cows are sacred here in India - they’re untouchable. I think they know that. They can sit at the side of the road and generally do. For the first time today I saw one moving, jogging down the road straight into oncoming traffic in some strange game of chicken. Sure enough - it was winning.
