It is communal.. this green is communal property… someone said that to me in England.

Conditioned by a childhood in India I instantly looked around for signs of rioting in the past, markers that claimed the spot in reds, greens, saffrons, or blues or whatever colour was supposed to be on the flag of the ‘community’.

Till I realised that they were speaking in English.

You know, the English English, local stuff.

All they had said was that green patch of grass belonged to all.
