Traffic jam in Nagpur

I spotted this pair waiting patiently at a set of traffic lights in Nagpur, a city in central India. They were looking on intently as another donkey brutally bullied its smaller companion.


After several minutes of sustained assault, the unfortunate victim finally snapped, turned on its assailant and chased it, braying loudly, into the middle of the busy road where it unleashed its retaliation by biting the perpetrator's ankles.


A donkey-themed David and Goliath for modern India... See my photostream for a frame-by-frame record of how the drama unfolded.
