Then, just before nightfall, we mounted a convoy of camel carts and trouped into the Thar Desert. A banquet had been prepared under the stars, Rajasthani tribal dancers and campfires illuminating the night. Another day, and another city. This time, the crème de la crème – Jaipur.

Before stepping down onto the red carpet for the last time, my valet, Vikram, eased himself out from his cupboard in the corridor and saluted me. Then he shook me by the hand. ‘Very sad you leaving, Sahib,’ he said. I thanked him. He shook my hand a second time, and saluted again for good measure. A moment later, I was just another lost soul adrift on a sea of commuters. I glanced back at the platform.
