"If India had been a man, we would have had a very unhealthy relationship indeed. The place overwhelmed and infuriated me; sometimes, after a hot day of frustrations, I felt as though it was taking blood from me to feed itself. In the mornings, though, waking up with India beside me, I was a girl newly in love. I'd lie very still, blinking into the bright white light. I could hear Radha moving around in the apartment, and I'd pray that she wouldn't intrude. I like to let the outside cacophony wash over me, as though it was a part of my dream. If I lay perfectly still, I imagined, it would stay with me for the whole day."
