CAROLINE QUENTIN: A PASSAGE THROUGH INDIA, SBS One, 7.30pm
SHE’S already covered 5000km in two episodes. Tonight Quentin leaves Mumbai to head to Kanyakumari, right at the bottom of India. Mysore first though. From this I take it Mysore has lots of snakes. Lots of snakes and lots of rats— hand in glove. On the itinerary is a healer who treats cancer patients from around the world. Quentin asks him about arthritis in her wrist, he gives her some bark, she gives him a musical tin of biscuits. Also on the way south are tea pickers, almost extinct, a spelling bee, elephants ... quite the travelogue.
