‘Indeed, Mr. Kapadia.’
‘A veritable masterpiece.’
Nitin, the photographer, beamed with pride. His photograph of the wasteland near Mr. Kapadia’s chemical factory was being showered with praise by the great man himself.
‘The colors, the waterfront… wah! This photo should go on our promotional materials and ad campaigns immediately. Let those bird-brains in Greenpeace and WWF know that we care about the environment too.’
‘What’s the black crap near the treeline?’
‘Dead Seagulls, Sir.’
‘Seagulls? I thought it was fallen leaves.’
‘We’ve dispatched the cleaners already.’
Mr. Kapadia waved his hand dismissivlely, ‘Everything looks amazing when you see them from the correct angle, eh?’
