TitleHoly Cow : an Indian adventure / Sarah Macdonald
ImprintLondon : Bantam Books, 2004
Descript 318 pages ; 21 cm


After backpacking her way around India, twenty-one-year-old Sarah Macdonald decides she hates the country with a passion. And when a beggar at the airport reads her palm and insists that she will one day return - and for love - she gives India, and him, the finger. But eleven years later, his prophecy comes ture. When the love of her life is posted to New Delhi, she leaves her dream job as a radio DJ in Sydney to follow her fiance to the most polluted ciry on earth. It seems like the ultimate sacrifice and it almost kills her - literally. One smoggy night, a sadhu smeared in human ashes curses her and she fall dangerously ill with double pneumonia. She survives, but not before she has faced some serious questions about her own morality and inner void, not to mention unsightly hair loss.-- Back cover
