Concrete Jungle

Months ago I watched as somebody confessed that she had killed her baby by placing a wet towel on its face. A few weeks ago a friend told me she was harassed on a bus for being Muslim and everyone watched on. Last week a teenage friend of mine told me she'd just been to the clinic for an abortion. Today as I walked home at 10.30PM in Delhi, I had my finger tight on the trigger of a can of pepper-spray and flinched every time a vehicle passed by.

Is the world getting weirder to live in or am I only just beginning to notice its true colours?
