Baby Kochamma’s jewellery

“The God of Small Things” by Arundhati Roy

November/December 2015

“The dim, dining-room light had rubbed the wrinkles off her face, leaving it looking – in a strange, sunken way – younger. She was wearing a lot of jewellery. Rahel’s dead grandmother’s jewellery. All of it. Winking rings. Diamond earrings. Gold bangles and a beautiful crafted flat gold chain that she touched from time to time, reassuring herself that it was there and that it was hers.”
