Have a good new week, dear Diana xoxox

PS.My heart goes out to those affected from the earthquake in Nepal. I guess you've been there more than once.. Very sad indeed.

I feel so sad too for what has happened in Nepal, dear Sas. Poor people are made even poorer and more desperate by this...I have been once in Nepal and found it very interesting and beautiful.
I hope you are having a lovely week, dear friend xxxxxx

It seems incomprehensible, when set against the "modern" aspect of India which we see so much of in the West.

Having re-read Naipaul's 3 books on India, I can visualise this so clearly; a country which seems to operate a parallel lifestyle....

Diana Australis has replied to Joan+
It is the caste system...which makes sets of parallel universes in the same country, Joan.

The wealthy and middle classes live cheek by jowl with this....
Nevertheless, India is a fascinating conundrum, and I love it to bits....
