"Jaira writes that my father wants to meet with me. He's coming to London the day after tomorrow for some business appointments and wants to squeeze me in somewhere. She doesn't put it that way, of course. But that's how it is. Private things are always interposed with Dad. I know from my mother that he conveyed his desire to divorce to her between two conference calls. It wasn't a very long conversation. Dad had only scheduled a ten-minute slot. The story understandably stunned me, but Mom just smiled. "I wasn't surprised. After all, he proposed to me during a break. Cricket, England versus India, between the first and second innings."
