INDIA: Jai Andhra! - TIME

INDIA: Jai Andhra! - TIME: "At the village of Sher Mohammed Pet, on a main thoroughfare leading into the coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh, all traffic must come to a halt these days. A handmade green-and-yellow flag flutters over the makeshift roadblock as youths wearing badges demanding statehood for Andhra step out to tax the traveler: 'Hey, you pay two rupees for Andhra.' The traveler pays or he does not pass. Shouts of 'Jai Andhra! Jai Andhra!' (Hail Andhra) go up as he is waved on."
