We travel all the time, from place to place, thought to thought. Thereare yet other journeys that we would like to make but are unable to, that exist powerfully in the mind, day after day, month after month.  Until Jehangir Bejan Tata died in San Francisco in 2013, he had beenmaking one such journey for the last sixty-odd years when he was backin Shanghai, admiring the clean art deco lines of a home he left in 1952 but which had never left his mind. Bir Bahadur Singh, haunted by asimilar longing, who left Pakistan during Partition, could actually make the journey back, fifty-four years later, to pick up the connections fromthat long past time.
