Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.
Mumbai police temporarily suspended their search for loose women after leading industrialist Mukesh Ambani filed a missing persons report, seeking his wife, Nita. She is believed to be somewhere between the 13th and 17th floors of Antillia, their twenty-seven story, $2 billion home with the best slum-view in India.
“She had gone to get some crockery,” said a distraught Mr Ambani. “She recently bought 46,000 pieces from Noritaki, because they were offering a discount, so naturally it takes her some time to lay the table. I did not worry till Tuesday, but now I am really concerned. Since then, all six hundred of my servants have been searching everywhere. They have searched all three floors of hanging gardens, as well as the ballroom, the air traffic control centre, and the man-made snow flurries, but she is nowhere to be found.”
Three thousand police officers are now combing the building, along with members of the Mumbai Indians cricket team. They are hopeful of completing operations by September.
