Mysore con Ajji, que era la madre de la madre de los gemelos.
Nadie sabía cuándo era el cumpleaños de Muttajji; Pero Ajji
siempre lo había celebrado en las vacaciones de Makara
“Amma, ¿habrá un pastel?” -preguntó Putti. -¿Un pastel grande y
esponjoso con glaseado rosado y una rosa encima?
-Naah -dijo Putta-. “Las personas mayores no tienen pasteles de
cumpleaños, y 200 velas no caben en ningún pastel”.

Amma sonrió. -¿Por qué no le preguntas cuando llegamos?
