I read with no small alarm the plan by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to clear vendors off the streets of Bangkok and "reclaim the space for pedestrians".
Before I first set foot into Bangkok more than two decades ago, I remembered looking at images of the city and I could never understand why hordes of people found it attractive when all I saw was traffic jams, human congestion, air pollution -- a little chaotic in fact.
