Things I'm loving...

Shantaram, Gregory David Roberts -- Guilty pleasure; not great literature, and reminds me of The Da Vinci Code, perhaps, for its fast-paced, page-turning pull, but absorbing nonetheless.

Atul Dodiya, "The Wet Sleeves of My Paper Robe (Sabari in Her Youth: After Nandalal Bose), on at Bodhi Gallery in the Qutab industrial area -- A nice little gallery, and an interesting exhibit that retells the story of Sabari, a marginal figure in the Ramayana.

Web site -- Oh man, did you know that in addition to stupid emo college movies, you can watch entire reality TV shows on this site? Hell yes.

Australia's Next Top Model -- If you like ANTM, you'll love this slightly more professional joint from down under. The girls are the right height, weight, and age, which makes it less of a joke. And, even cooler, there was nekkidness on the first episode -- as well as a drunken eyebrow shaving. Wee! Catch it on Youtube if you, like I, am in a country that does not carry the series.

The Export Hut, near the Blind School in Lajpat Nagar IV, New Delhi. Today I got three beaded eyeglass cases (Rs 10 each), a summery messenger bag (Rs 75), and a bright yellow T-shirt emblazoned with country names (Rs 125).
