we thought you would like to come and see our firm."
"I consider you should pay my fare," I retorted, "as you
have brought me here on a fool's errand."
"Oh, we cannot do that," he said. "You offered to come
for an interview; we merely accepted your offer."
I was so depressed that the long walk back to the station


seemed even longer. The inevitable wait for a train, and the
slow journey back to Clapham. The train wheels beneath
me seemed to say: "You should write a book, you should
write a book, you should write a book." In Paris, France,
there is another Tibetan lama who came to the West for a
special purpose. Unlike me, circumstances decreed that he
