Hens, dogs, goats and especially many cows wander and sleep randomly on the street. To my surprise there are also a lot of crows with gray heads in Chennai, who sit on the chaotic net of electric wires that connect the houses to the power grid. The cows display an extraordinary amount of confidence. A bus has to slow down because of a cow crossing the street; the driver does not dare to hump (he would have not slowed down the slightest for a pedestrian). Another is cow standing in front of a street show, staring at the vendor with an intensity that he is not able to ignore. A customer buys a couple of bananas for the cow, which it eats in one piece not bothering to peal.
