    Thank you for playing Ramana.
    I very much like the idea of being born in a maternity home. I suppose it is really the same as a hospital but it sounds more intimate and community spirited

    • Maternity Homes in India are quite common though I am actually surprised that despite our long association with the British, the term came into popular acceptance.

  4. Aaack! Too many questions! I’ll answer all of the ones ending in 7:

    7: Yes, I’d be friends
    17: Black pants and black socks (I’m inside)
    27: Happy endings
    37: Silence
