In a telephone conversation this evening, Maya told me her family has really taken to Margi, and that Margi is in good spirits and surprisingly lucid and lively after her first chemotherapy treatment. Also that Margi very much wants to stay in India at the present time, and that she's very focused on being alive NOW. She and Karthik were apparently swapping jokes, Margi giving as good as she got. They also swapped stories about Nepal, which Karthik (a travel agent) knows well. It seems that Margi really does have a new Indian family, one that is very interested in helping her get well and in assisting anyone who goes to visit her - if assistance is needed in figuring out things like what hotels to stay in.
