Roaming the streets clicking pictures brings you face to face with a lot of disturbing sights. Just before Ugadi, I was riding down a road parallel to Mysore Road, a few minutes after clicking the above image on Binny Rest House Road. On the narrow street was a man, completely still, face down and lying in a pool of fresh blood, next to a Scorpio. It looked like an accident, but there wasn't a single person rushing to help. There was complete silence and shock on every single face watching from a safe distance. Traffic slowed, but didn't stop. I moved along too as a Police van came rushing in. Later I read that it was a gangster called Poone alias Narashimhamurthy who was lying in a pool of blood. Over the next two weeks, there was to be a number of gang related slayings across the city. And the weapon of choice - swords, like these territorial pissing painted on the walls by some wannabe gangsters with the usual 'rowdy' names.
