I was woken up from my siesta by a visiting friend from Mumbai. He was waiting for me in the drawing room when I came down yawning. Seeing me he said something very funny. He said, “I don’t swing that way!” I asked him what on earth he was talking about and he produced a news item from this morning’s local newspaper which he had been reading while waiting for me. I am unable to scan and reproduce it in its entirety as it is too big, but on googling for the same headlines I found the gist of it here.

We laughed at it and he went away after tea. I subsequently got around to reading the newspapers which I had not been able to as I had a house guest in the morning who had to be given breakfast and sent off. As I was reading the paper another news item caught my eyes.

I just wonder if she ever yawned!
