‘Ammu loved her children (of course), but their wide-eyed vulnerability, and their willingness to love people who didn’t really love them, exasperated her and sometimes made her want to hurt them – just as an education, a protection.
It was as though the window through which their father disappeared had been kept open for anyone to walk in and be welcomed.’

– Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things
