It was a beautiful night.
“Chriiiiirup… Chriiiiirup… Chriiiiirup” could be heard as dusk settled and the locals walked home.
The sound of an electronic saw pierced the air. Crash! went the sound of the first one, then the second and then the third. Peace changed to chaos as activists were arrested, others detained as they tried to get home.
Social media and news channels were full of it but who could stop the forces of development?
An old man struggled to get home with an almost empty oxygen cylinder. A good Samaritan saw him collapse and rushed over to give him a breath of fresh air from his own cylinder.
Thankfully the ‘life-saving’ cylinder refill van was just around the corner.
