‘The rows of ceil­ing fans strug­gled to cool the raked Kolkata auc­tion room. Their col­lec­tive whir barely cov­ered the caw­ing of large crows on the trees out­side or the in­ces­sant honk­ing horns from blackand-ca­nary-yel­low Am­bas­sador taxis mov­ing through the per­pet­u­ally slow traf­fic. Nearly two inches of rain had fallen on Fri­day, and af­ter a rel­a­tively dry week­end, drench­ing mon­soon showers re­turned on Mon­day, July 14, 2003 … Only the light­est of breezes moved in the thick air.’
