I read this and this today morning and felt shocked and ashamed. I should not have been shocked, having lived in India for more than 2 decades. What caused the shock was such an open write-up. People always lace such horrifying experiences with stuff like warmth of the people, the beautiful landscape etc.. But this one was quite blatant. Still, I am ashamed of my countrymen [gender neutral] because I know what RoseChasm has written is true.

The time with Z is the most precious of all. I could look at him the whole day. It is love I have never known before. So many things make sense now and so many things don't. It would nice to have a nice relaxing holiday. Like go off to so…
