The Bird Flu Effect

Bird Flu is detected at Navapur in Maharastra but the repurcussions are seen right across the street from my home here in Chennai.

I walked across to a couple of shops in virugambakkam where we usually buy fresh chicken. Business was clearly dull. I accosted one of the guys working in the shop and enquired if he was worried with his business taking a hit. He shrugged it off saying that he has seen similar situations before and business would eventually return back within a week.

Check out the snap below. This shop would usually be teeming with people but it had a deserted look. In the second snap, take a look at the cage. During normal days, it would be stuffed with broiler chicken but it was empty today.
