I clicked all of these in the “wilderness” area of Atma Santulan, my friend Kalpana Raval’s 5-acre estate. She allowed me to wander all over the place…and I had a wonderful time. Even though the sprawling house was full of treasures, the garden was a place I could hardly tear myself away from. She’s got wheat and vegetables growing in one part; she’s retained a kind of unkempt, natural wilderness in another; large lawns on two sides of the house, and an office, where she, her son Nikunt, and sister-in-law, Dharmishta, practice law.
List of things/services broken, or locked, or stopped, when I returned after a 9-month absence:
I took the train to Ahmedabad, and am attending KM’s IIM class Ruby reunion (It’s called CSB…Chaalis Saal Baad).
