Many things happen in India. Crossdressers find their calling as goddesses among eunuchs and Italians make mozzarella fresca from Indian buffalos

So the story goes, an Italian by the name of Giuseppe Mozillo was driving through Himchal Pradesh, when he recognized a certain cattle prized for its ultra rich milk. India is home to over half of the world’s water buffalo and Haryana (just south of Himchal Pradesh) is in the heart of India’s dairy country. A €500,000 loan later delicious mozzarella fresca was born.
We served this cheese along with some risotto at a dinner party we threw last night. At that dinner party a friend of ours who teaches at a college here in Delhi was telling us how she was having trouble with a student who believed she was being possessed by evil spirits— Jins. I mean, I’ve heard many excuses, but this, I believe could only happen in India.
Another common siting in India is eunuchs—one of the many ‘types’ I was told to look out for while I was here… I find the fact that I haven’t seen a single one a bit strange because apparently there are like 700,000 eunuchs living in India. On my google search I came across the story of one Steve Cooper from Tooting, London. A man who has apparently found his calling as the reincarnation of the Hindu goddess Bahucharaji, patron saint of all eunuchs. Not all of the eunuchs living in his little enclave are happy about this, as Steven still has some crucial plumbing still attached, ahem. In any case, Steven is going to spend the rest of his life there, curing infertility. In India, I feel like almost anything is possible.
