For Charlie, it was clear that rehab was necessary when, after months of obsessively playing a smartphone game called Spirit Lords, her mother called her at college worried that she had taken up gambling. Over five months, she had blown $8,000 on “spirit upgrades” and in-app purchases like rare weapons to help her beat the game. ’ But it didn’t happen,” Charlie* told me. “That was a sign to my family and myself that I had an addiction. But 19-year-old Charlie wasn’t just addicted to Spirit Lords. She spent hours on Tumblr talking to people she’s never met that she counts as her “closest friends. “My mom had been saying for years that I spent too much time online,” said Charlie, who wears her hair in a close-cropped pixie cut and usually speaks in absolutes. The center is 25 miles east from Seattle, a drive that takes you through the suburb of Bellevue, past Microsoft’s home in Redmond, and then onto a desolate stretch of Route 202 that is just miles and miles of evergreens.

My soul is in my garden," Priya Mascarenhas says, seated in her favourite couch by the door of her expansive half an acre bungalow on Cookson Road. That is to be expected - her garden has, for the 35th consecutive year, won 'The Most Outstanding Ornamental Garden' of Bengaluru. Pebbled walkways and landscaping touches such as a small bridge sit well with her enviable collection of plants- from Heliconias (her favourite) to ornamental plants such as philodendrons and asparagus. But walk a little further into the 130-year-old colonial building complete with delicious legacies of another time - a foyer, a sitting room, a family room, a massage room and even one for linen - and you'll spot her soul in many more spots. Like the corner that houses her favourite angels, the wall that sports an Aziz painting, and the stained glass kitchen doors that invite you in. Having been married 48 years and lived in this home for 37 of them, Masceranhas has seen Bengaluru... "I love the period look," she confesses, pointing to the Chantilly lace that hangs from the pelmets, the grandfather clocks and the old-world lampshades that adorn the space.
In the classic noir film “The Third Man,” Harry Lime steals penicillin from sick children to sell on the black market, justifying his unscrupulous behavior by explaining that “for 30 years under the Borgias” Italy had murder and bloody warfare... —but had he known a little ornithology he might have been more excited about the cuckoo, even if he hated the clock.
