Can't help but share an incident that completely empathises with the demolition drive, the relocation drive rather, that happens every time a flyover or a metro is added to my lovely city called Delhi..(its bizaare, chaotic, strange,steady,hot,dirty)..but love it irrespective!!!
Here the protaganist's (Arthur) house bears the brunt of a bypass that is being built..The way the author rationalises the futility of building a bypass made me guffaw and snort like a wild pig..He says:
"Bypasses are devices that allow some people to dash from point A topoint B very fast while other people dash from point B to point A veryfast. People living at point C, being a point directly in between, are often given to wonder what's so great about point A that so many peoplefrom point B are so keen to get there and what's so great about point B that so many people from point A are so keen to get there. They oftenwish that people would just once and for all work out where the hell they wanted to be."
