West Bengal Neighborhood Security
Two days ago and to much relief I moved out of backpacker alley- Sudder St. and into a neighborhood near the red light district of Kiddipur. DO NOT FEAR: We have a security guard. Every night from 11:00 PM to 5:00 AM this man paroles the neighborhood, bangs a wooden stick against the cracked pavement and blows a whistle- simultaneously. The jest being if the alarms of whistle and banging stick at some point stop- be scared, the criminal has taken out the neighborhood security. Backwards? Not in India.
