This chapter details events in Roland Penrose's life from 1932 to 1935. In an attempt to sort out the problems in their marriage, Roland and Valentine travelled to India at the end of 1932, where their friend, Cuban-born archaeologist Vicente-Marcelino-Julio Galarza Pérez Castañeda had taken up a professorship in Arabic philosophy at the University of Calcutta. Although they were largely sheltered from them, the Penroses nevertheless felt themselves assaulted on a daily basis by the harsh realities of everyday life in India. Roland's sense of natural justice was further battered when he witnessed the treatment of the Indian people at the hands of their English rulers.
