"I was shocked when I first came back to India some years ago. Everybody seemed to be having extramarital affairs. You don't do that in the West. You have serial monogamy. But I have changed my mind. If there is a Krishna in men, there is a Radha in women. Why can't I be both: a wife and Radha? We are born with it. Men are doing their Krishna thing, aren't they?"

Well, blame it on the gods. Or, thank them. Adultery is alive and flourishing in India. So what's new? After all, adultery is as old as the gods, if not older in the land of the Kamasutra, multiple spouses and frolicking deities. Where traditionally, and in some communities, the pleasures of the flesh (like meat) are consumed outside the hallowed spaces of the home—and the conjugal bed. To put it in today's parlance, men are like that only. And now, women are getting to be like that only too.
