After a wonderful week and a half at the IPW workshop with David Alan Harvey in Nawalgarh, I had to head back home to the drudgery of routine work. The drive from the Bhandaris' residence to Jaipur airport was the longest I ever had. To top it all, the flight was late. So I hung around with Chintu and Tikku, they had come to drop off their grandmom, who was flying to bombay too. The kids and I, had a lotta fun, taking fotos, singing songs, etc etc. While going both of em suddenly hugged me, gave me a kiss on my cheek, and said "Aap humko bahut acche lagte hain,(we like you a lot)." And then they waited, and asked me to say and do the same thing they did to me. Children, can make the easiest of goodbyes, very very difficult.
