A ... Figure climbs out ...

Dishevelled
Awkwardly

1

With such pinched expressions, such

Tight-lipped disapproval

2

Ramu beams at them as if he

Does not recognise the signs of a cold welcome, or is entirely used to them

3

(Uma) titters with

Pleasure: ladies! Gents!

4

The parents have decided to use

Silence as a weapon

'Puris for breakfast?' The words

Explode from him in both excitement and horror

6

(Ramu) shows a restlessness that is

Almost like a physical itch

7

(Uma's hair is)

Wiry and streaked with premature grey

8

She has never been to one...

In her life; how can she think of starting now when her hair is already grey

An infuriating insouciance, the insouciance of the black sheep

10

With laughter

Muddy and was streaked with deep lines

Those enemies of abandon, were standing behind her and watching her, with scorn.

19

She felt uneasily caught between

Powerful forces pulling in different directions

20

'The lord has

Chosen you. You bear His mark'

21

Uma made herself

Rigid

22

They became very respectful

Of Uma now, watchful and curious

23

That is what Uma felt her own life to have been

Full of barks, howls, messages, and now - silence.

24

She had quite forgotten

She had been expected to return
