In desperation, we send Shabir, the house servant, out past the guardhouse to hail two cabs at the corner. When we moved to Bombay, he drove our car dealer crazy by insisting that seat belts be installed in the backseat of our gray Hyundai Santro.

He then emailed someone in Pakistan and asked, "I missed my plane, what should I do? Mariane and I are taking my colleague and our local Kashmiri carpet dealers out for Christmas dinner. By day you see the poor burn under the scorching sun, selling vegetables and newspapers at dusty crossroads.
