A Happening Sketch!

Art Traditional Art Urban Sketching

Today I chose a higher vantage point to do my lunchtime sketch. I was sketching these bunch of taparies (roadside tea and snack stalls) from one of the muti-level car parks. 10 mins into the sketch, and there was a sudden commotion below. Anti encroachment van of the municipal corporation had arrived to act on the illegally set up stalls!

As the vendors ran helter-skelter to salvage what they could from the hands of law, the scene quickly changed. The van stayed for almost 15 mins, confiscating some goods, and leaving ruined stalls behind.

I am sure the stalls will be back in a couple of days to serve the IT professionals too much disillusioned with their office canteens!
