Ananta Chaitanya: Dear Amrita, you are always cross with me. If you had been born in America and I at Pondicherry…

Amrita: Go on. Why do you stop?

Ananta: Spirituality is not as cheap in America as here. You must realise that it is very difficult for me to stay here, and at least you must say that, of late, I have made much progress.

Amrita: Who says that you have not? And I say, just because Ananta the Great was born in America, one day she will become more spiritual than Pondicherry.
