    There never seems to be too much bustle and frantic rushing about, is it really calm?
    The Ravi Shankar piece is superb.

    • I suppose I live in an Indian equivalent of the “burbs”. But it’s the suburbs of Fort Cochin: a quiet historic quarter, tucked away on the tip of a peninsular. There are few cars and no buses or trucks on our immediately local roads.

      Here all “rush hour traffic” means is that the auto-rickshaws are packed with laughing children and there are a few more bicycles on the road.

      The busy bustling part of the city is on the mainland, a twenty-minute ferry ride across the waters from here.

      I love that Ravi Shankar piece too..
