Dear Dr D,
The Cambridge dictionary describes the word ‘Sasquatch’ as ‘Bigfoot’. It explains that the words have two related meanings. One is “to get more attention than someone or something because of being very strong” and the other is: “a large creature covered in hair that some people believe exists in US and Canada”. And also, it should be added, in the Himalayas.

The Indian army spotted my tracks a few days ago and tweeted that it had seen “the mysterious footprints of the mythical beast Yeti”. That is fine, but they referred to me as abominable which I thought was a bit low.

Anyway, my point is this. You people have me totally wrong. I’m not trying to get more attention. And second, where the heck is a Yeti to go when you people have infected the planet? I left the US and Canada because of, well, Trump. And I came to the Himalayas for some peace and quiet, but there’s none to be had. If it’s not Doklam, it’s Siachen. China is building superhighways through once virgin mountains and there’s no escaping your armies and expeditions anywhere.

What does a Yeti need to do to get some peace and quiet around here?

Adorable Snowman,

Dear Snowman,
If you’re looking for places you cannot be found, I can suggest the following:

- Swiss banks holding Rs 15 lakh
- The idyll named 'Achche Din'
- The Utopia called Opposition Unity
- The myth called 'Sabka Saath'
