Tax evaders in a southern Indian city are having cash beaten out of them - by troupes of drummers.
Authorities in the city of Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh state are sending drummers around to create a noise outside homes until evaders cough up.
Officials say they recouped 200,000 rupees ($4,600) on the first day.
Harried residents emerged from their homes to be told by accompanying tax collectors to pay up or continue facing the music.
I like the idea of public shaming, plus the nuisance of the noise would encourage pressure from the neighbors of the evaders.
