‘When saying good night, we started with a peck on the cheeks, progressed to kissing on the lips, and then full-blooded mouth kissing—she would roll her tongue in my mouth. She sensed that I lacked the confidence to go further and decided to take the initiative.
She asked me to have a drink with her in her room.’

Mohan leaves India for the first time to go to Princeton to study. It’s a new world, where everything is different—but some things stay the same no matter where you are. For the first time, Mohan meets women who are unafraid of sex and want him as much as he wants them. And Jessica Browne introduces him to what he only dreamt of knowing before—the wonders of a woman’s body.

Khushwant Singh’s magnificent prose meets the universal pleasure for the first time in this short, compelling story.
