A lady dying from cancer, learning Hindi to throw her last moments in a cultivated passion.
Deviations of hard work are potent, but do they reduce fear? What use is Hindi in the face of death?
She talks about how ‘Dhoop Khana’, or eating the sun, in Hindi means sun-bathing. She notes the alphabet's beauty, chuckles in the novelty of its pronunciation.
Is life different with Hindi? Is it more poetic?
