Another thing I like about India is how fast things change here.

Vroom kick-started his bike, and in a few seconds we had zipped out of the call centre. The main road was getting busier as the morning progressed, but Vroom still managed a top speed of ninety. On the road into the city, we dodged cars, scooters, autos, school buses and newspaper hawkers.

Just as Vroom moved ahead, a herd of goats decided to cross the road and fifty of them blocked our way.
‘Damn, where did they come from?’ I said.
‘This urban jungle of Gurgaon was a village until recently; the goats are probably asking where did we come from,’ Vroom said.

— Chetan Bhagat. One night @ the call centre.

This is Gurgaon:
