India: Thoughts After Three Months

Fruit for sale in Mysore
If a dodgy stomach is the price to pay for visiting India, it's well worth paying; besides, bananas are safe and available everywhere, like here in Mysore Market

So that's the end of my first three months in India, but am I any the wiser? I'm not sure, really; all I can think of is a phrase from James Hawes' A White Merc with Fins where the anti-heroine, Suzy, is joking about going to India for three months. In a fit of accuracy, she decides not to bother because she'll just end up 'losing two stone and talking shite'. Unwittingly, Hawes' description is accurate as hell.
