We saw Barfi! which turned out to be more like an arty French film than anything I’d expected to see, and thoroughly enjoyable. Plus it was air-conditioned so ...
... about anything you can think of, and many things you wouldn’t, like mothballs. But stepping on the train, at the opposite end of our car, is a man carrying a strange one stringed instrument that looks like a drum with a bamboo pole fastened to it.

The Bauls are a linage ...
