Abstract

Adam Krause fiction lum Tours, says the steel shingle outside my office, and inside in the air conditioning I have brochures that show happy people, freckles standing out like flies on their faces, with a horde of grateful children clinging to their long, pink, khaki-shorted legs. "This could be you!" I tell my prospective customers, who stumble in off the Rajpath, dazed from heat stroke, squinting at shadows after a morning of craning their necks toward the bright sky to take in India Gate, Parliament House, the Flame of the Immortal Jawan and all the other towering monuments. "Look lower," I tell them. "I know of a simple place, a village in the heart of the city, where the houses stand from fortitude alone and the women weave quilts out of nothing but tradition. The people of this village may look wretched to your eyes, but they are the Photo of suit by Wayne Roddy, photo of garbage by John Nyberg, photo of Ganesh statue by Sujit Mahapatra distillation of all that endures. They await you. They are India's true immortal flame." I serve the tourists fine white cups of strong tea while they discuss in hushed voices
