In the evening the whole of this relatively new residential area collects at the “center”, a local name for a busy intersection. Many people do not have any business to transact at the center but merely collect there for “time pass’. Some sit on the road divider, on the grass near the water tap ,which says ” warning : do not drink this water” . Some sit there idly exchanging gossip.
There in the middle sit three stone monkeys, the Gandhi monkeys for not saying, not seeing, not hearing evil . Everybody here knows their gender. They are male. If you see them you will also know.
