On the way to teach HIV to ninth standard english medium children in Chennai.

Out the window to my left a man with whitening hair and bony shaped unclothed skin lie on his side. Undernearth a wall not so typical as advertisements for light skinned starlets, but a scale that is equaled. And some words. RIGHTS-HUMAN-EQUALITY-INDIAN-painted red, white and green. The man turned so slowly…the bus pulled away while traffic obstructed India.
