Arrive in Trichy, hire driver and photographer, visit villages and speak with media. Visit to Pudukottai and MUTHARASANALLUR Discussing my case with the priest of the Roman Catholic church in Pudukottai. Trying to find a doctor’s office who works to help destitute people and locate family. Me walking in the courtyard of the church in the blazing sun. Anjali, Kumar and Arun waiting for the doctor. My first moto ride with one of our best guides yet. Discussing the case with local women and elders. Consulting a local outreach worker in the neighborhood where my mother lives. Outside of the orphanage administrative offices. Anjali and I goofing after a delicious lunch of tandoori chicken and butter chicken. The village president and I. He has been incredibly generous and kind. India Today journalists prepping my interview. Anjali coaching me through what I need to say during the on camera interview.

Sounds like you’re in the thick of it, Kumar. Good that you’re taking time for self-care. Definitely follow your instinct to carve out some time for reflection too.

Thanks Dinesh, I’m sure I’ll have time for reflection once this all cools off.
Dude! Just read and listened to all your updates. So many thoughts and feelings, mostly if pride of love for you. I can’t imagine this to be any sort of easy, yet am so proud of you for feeling the feels and acknowledging them as they come. I’ll be thinking about you esp. on Monday as you keep digging in. We love you!
