To my dearest Dida,
I want you to have this book, the short stories of which I have re-read countless times, for several reasons. You can say, compare Jeeves to Xavier – with Xavier indubitably coming out the winner. Second and most importantly – it is my favourite book – the principal Upanishads and Sartre are no match for it.

Also! Today is Shweta’s Aashirbad. I hope to live a long happy and prosperous life with her. We are very much alike. She is intelligent and beautiful, and I have been called handsome since I was 2. We shall forge ahead in simplicity, love, pomp, passion and – love again. I know we have your blessings.
Your Grandson, Babu
