This particular piece is a reaction to a couple articles I read about a suicide that took place in Kolkata. This event took place on a busy street, during a time when there is a lot of foot traffic. The lady climbed a tree and to a lamp-post, and fastened a noose with an article of clothing. The body lay hanging without anyone taking notice, or bothering to report, or stop the lady before she committed the act. This particular piece illustrates the selfishness and apathy of the crowd that passed by as the body hung on the streets. However this is not a unique incident. India in notorious for such events.
