The man on the motorcycle has a gun
slung over his shoulder.
He is probably a private security guard.
Guards who own a licenced gun
are better paid than the unarmed ones.
Traffic is pretty chaotic around town.
The city has been given a grant by the World Bank
to lay down sewage pipes and underground
drainage system which they have to
finish before the monsoons set in.
They are doing it in a haphazard
Digging up roads, causing traffic disruptions,
dusty environment and commuting dangers.
The dug up roads are not repaired properly,
Its dangerous to move over them.

My hands,arms and knees also get
inflamed and I have to take painkillers.
Sonia 's company is a real

They are leaving on Sunday morning
