Ooooo... Best drabble of the set so far. I LOVE that you have him and India and that you use your real life experience to keep the story as accurate as possibel. I dream of India and this only feeds my passion to want to go there.

Concise and emotionally filled writing this. I hope there'll be a conclusion :)

That is so cool that you lived in India for seven months! I'm Indian and it's so interesting to see how other people perceive my country/culture/religion!
Just so you know, women wear a bindi both before and after marriage. Traditionally, after marriage it is a red dot/circle. Before marriage it is more fancy though in recent years women wear the fancy ones after marriage as well. As for men, both unmarried and married men wear the "tikka" as you call it. It is done after praying in the mornings (commonly applied with the thumb in a single upward stroke). I had a friend who would apply sandalwood paste to the forehead after praying every morning and he was most certainly not married! Other members of my family would apply the red powder to the idols/pictures of God in the family temple and then apply the red powder to their own forehead. It is not generally a sign of marriage in men. In women however, in addition to the bindi it is common to wear the red powered (kum kum/sindoor) in the part of the hair to signify marriage.
That said, India is a huge country and practices vary depending on what part of the country you are from!

Are you going to continue this? It's really great, but you're mid-story arc, and it's bugging me that you haven't updated in a year and a half.

I hope that at some time in the near future you will resume posting as this tale has me hooked!

*sigh* I felt bittersweet when I saw this series had been nominated for the awards. I think it's awesome, since it's responsible for introducing me to my current obsession, but so sad because we'll never know how it turns out. *cries*
Okay, I'll try not to whine anymore. You're awesome, girl!

as an american brought child of strictly religious hindu indian descent, i applaud you in your efforts to maintain the authenticity of the india chapters.
and yes, saffron is about as romantic as you can get. forget diamonds, saffron's probably more expensive by the ounce.

I'm enjoying this so far! I tend to leave a mass review at the end of a story, but I just had to say that opaque really isn't the word you want to use there. Opaque means you can't see through it at all. Transparent means you can see through it clearly, so that's also not a word you want to use. Translucent, however, means that it lets a bit of light through, in which case you'd be able to see differences of color in her booblies but not much else.

Congratulations on your nomination! This was bitter sweet, I enjoyed it!
