Going, Going, Gone

The (manually operated) bicycle pump, the ice-cream seller with a pushcart, the snake charmer - these are some of the things that, according to Falter Ego, will disappear in our lifetime. Sad indeed.

But "round the decay of that colossal wreck", there are so many "half-sunk, shattered" visages.

Seen a circus tent lately? It's gone.

Ever watched a slideshow through a (so-called) "bioscope"? Gone for good.

Someone tell me the dreaded "safari suit" is gone.

The Indian vulture, once found in most parts of the country, particularly in the North? Almost gone.

Oh, and a ten million girls. Dead and gone.

Oh! Believe me, the safari suits ain't going anywhere. Till the government babus are there, the safari suit will be much in demand.
