required me to shift gears and come down to sea level. An aborted plane ride from Java to Bombay during WWll, ahead of the invading Japanese, leaves the hero and his father adrift in the Indian ocean. Another novella in the book has a gutsy little heroine called Sita, holding fort alone on an island in a flooded river. Even the stories that are set up in Assam, have a watery motif — the hero’s grandpa spending hours splashing away in his tub! During and after an earthquake!
