One occurred on page of my edition.
Dorothy and Douglas are discussing something between themselves. This is careless in a best seller. On page , another problem occurred.
The reason that Dr Gaya included the sad outcome of his degree is, I believe, to tell the recipient of his business card that he managed to gain admission into a university, which in itself was an achievement to be proud of.
I hope that I am wrong, but I had the impression that the author chose to include this for reasons that may have had more to do with making fun of the Indian, than for any other reason. He said Mrs.
Donnelly had received the appropriate care and that she was waiting for a bed. He didn't mention that he would kill for an hour's sleep. He didn't mention that since the closure of the Casualty department at the neighboring hospital, his own, at St. Jude's, had to cope with twice the number of drunks, drug overdoses and victims of pointless violence; that St.
Jude's would soon be closing because its site, in the center of Lewisham, was deemed too valuable for sick people; that the private consortium that had taken it over had sold the land to Safeway, who were planning to build a super- store. Exhausted, Ravi drove home to Dulwich.
Walking up his path, he paused to breathe deeply. It was seven in the evening; some- where a bird sang.
Beside the path, daffodil blooms had shriveled into tissue paper. Spring had come and gone without his noticing. In the kitchen, Pauline was reading the Evening Standard. The story had gathered momentum; other cases were printed, out- raged relatives told their tales.
Ravi opened a carton of apple juice. It's an astounding country, I was knocked sideways when I first got there — it has a powerful effect on you. My visceral impressions were made more intense by the pre-monsoon weather; grey, overcast, very hot, very smelly. I saw lot of poverty and didn't know if I could make a comedy there.
External things dominated first. Then, the national character, the people's temperament, asserted itself; the way Indians greet the world is transformative.
After being there, you come back changed. It's an amazing place but it was disturbing to see how, despite massive economic resurgence, the disparate issues and problems couldn't be pulled together. I couldn't grapple with the inequity.
Still, my wife and I felt completely at home, we connected with the country. There's a sense of endurance, patience, openness, tolerance and hospitality. India made me smile, the country smiles back at you, Rajasthan's very welcoming, Was India's bureaucracy hard to deal with?
It was tough; there were logistical challenges, government restrictions. One embraces challenges, they were liberating in this film's context. I found it enjoyable to consult with 20 people over my shoulder about the next shot. There's a moment in the film where Nighy helps Penelope into a bus but before he could help Judi on, some man wandered into the shot! Nighy improvised, Judi cracked up; the man wasn't an extra, he was trying to take the bus, too!
Now he's immortalised. Then, in the band singing a song to Judi and Bill, there's another guy — I've no idea how he got there. It was extraordinarily hard getting permission to film on a train.
But everyday hassles were inspiring — we filmed through the festive season, everyday seemed to be a holiday. Casting in Bombay during the Ganesh festival, I was surrounded by a group of drummers who drummed around me. I was so overwhelmed that I searched them out for the film. Do you think this international film will lead to other such films?
