I can see it on their smug faces. Across Gurugram, cows sense a bright future. They stand on various roads looking in one direction, like before, but there are more of them than ever and they are left like this for hours by their minders because nobody now dares to evict cows; it’s not like they are mere slum dwellers. So they amble about, blocking traffic, occasionally nudging a biker and sending him rolling. Stray dogs, too, are enjoying a good life, especially after a high court clarified that they have “a right to be fed in their territory”.
