Thought you had a tough commune?

Spare a thought for 35-year old Balaji Vithoba Kohde of Mangrud, India. On Monday evening, on his pedal home from work, he was attacked by a tigress.

Using a heavy steel Indian bicycle as a defence against a fast predator is a good plan. Outrunning a ravenous beast is not the best of ideas, although Raleigh’s African marketing division had different ideas in the 1930s…
