was feeling weary and bored with her surroundings.
Her mother had always
called her 'a dreamer', lost in her own little world, dreaming her life
But then without her
dreams she would have had no goals that she could strive towards. After
all, don't dreams come true? Sometimes?
A year passed and
Isabella went away to an all girls boarding school. A young girl
from India at the school, named Priya, befriended Isabella.
Priya told stories of her experiences of growing up near Mumbai. Priya described the wild elephants and monkeys she had seen in her childhood.
She depicted the monsoons that had flooded the streets and the sizzling heat which scorched like a fiery oven. The blistering heat was at times more than she could bear!
It parched her mouth and sweat soaked through her clothing until the clothes dripped like washing on the line.
Relief seemed untenable, for Priya and her family had lived far from the coast.
There was never a cool breeze, no reprieve that could have alleviated the sweat dribbling from her brow.
Only more sweltering heat! She also described the lushness of her country, the rolling green hills of tea plantations and the dense forests.
As Priya spoke Isabella was momentarily transported to India visualising what it could be like in her mind's eye living in a vast land of undulating contrast!
She could almost feel
the blistering heat, the monsoon rains, the saturating humidity and
picture the verdurous countryside, so unlike her barren hometown.
Priya and her family had migrated to Australia 10 years previously.
Her father now owned and managed a successful import business of spices, rugs and tapestries from the Middle East.
On school holidays Priya helped her father in his office and Isabella visited the family every chance she could get.
Priya's mother cooked delicious Indian dishes that filled their house with such fragrant aroma of cumin, saffron and chilli spices - which tantalised the senses of taste, smell and sight.
