Hope springs eternal
Riding through the fog today, found traffic was halted just before the Golf Club, and I wondered whether protestors were being stopped 2 km. away from India Gate, and that at 7:30 a.m. No, it was the security cavalcade of a plutocrat entering the parking lot after escorting its charge to the 1st tee. Ample evidence that our security forces are busy protecting us.
We cyclists were allowed into the India Gate inner circle to stage our little protest, got our 15 seconds of fame with TV cameras looking for a different angle. We did 5 symbolic circles around the Amar Jawan Jyoti, then were whistled away by the cops.
Having breakfast at a cafe at 10, the TV informed me that protest in the area had since been declared illegal.
The plutocrats who weren't playing golf had woken up, and decided they need to take strong action.
