A May Day Story

Keen as I am that shirkers and layabouts should get their just deserts (my instinct on May Day is to scream " Get back to work you lazy bastards!") this really does seem a little harsh:

An employer in eastern India beheaded one of his workers for failing to milk his cows, police said on Saturday.

Neighbors watched in horror as Upendra Yadav was dragged out of his house in Jharkhand state on Friday by his angry employer.

The employer's father and brother held Yadav down before he was beheaded with a sword, police said.

The employer has been charged with murder.

Very harsh in fact although think what effect that sort of incentive would have upon council workers!
