    Another way to see: TOI 

    If you’re an American cousin, check out the Times of India online.   The page layout — what content is selected for the first page, and how it’s organized — expresses India’s innate socio-cultural respect for humanity’s humanity.

    I love that respect.  It’s saved my life twice.  And it draws me back to India’s people and arts time and time again.

    My daughter, my daughter… Dear Tina, t… 

    My daughter, my daughter… Dear Tina, thank you for the lovely woollen dupatta, or maybe that’s not what it is… a hand-woven, most amazing, shawl kind of thing, from India, of a wool that’s very fine and soft, with a design of a black ground and woven-in patterns of two reds and a blueish green — one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever owned. It shields me from all harm when I wear it. It’s magical. Thank you, and love.
