bringing all the boys to the yard

I spent this weekend moving into our new apartment. Not much to say, except that we have congenial neighbours and rooms of our own. It is also a very hard place whence to hail an autorickshaw. My first attempts to learn to ride a bicycle ended in disaster (I crashed into an old gentleman. He had to be paid.) but I was almost serious yesterday when toying with the idea of learning to ride one and then buying one to cruise the roads of Hyderabad. Then I gave up on it, because these are the roads of Hyderabad. I may not crash into old gentlemen anymore, but old gentlemen will certainly crash into me. So will young gentlemen, non-gentlemen, and women. And children without licenses taking automobilic liberties. Only last night, the rickshaw driver who dropped us to a restaurant asked me to get my leg out of the way of his rickshaw – after I had yelped at him for running over it.

One of the landmarks on the way to our new home is ____ Dairy Farm.

____ Dairy Farm has a motto.

Their motto is as follows.


And with that, I leave you.
