While I’d like to say no grandmothers or little girls were eaten in the making of this photograph, that would be an exaggeration. We also somehow managed to eat a dragon, who suddenly appeared on the way to grandma’s house. One of the perks of having a nice room is that you actually want to lounge about. And that’s exactly what we did. The night before, we had an exhausting game of Monopoly, or as Kavya puts it, “Bonopoly.” I just don’t have it in me to tell her it’s with an M.
