cowdust time
 n.— «By “cowdust time,” the evocative Indian term for dusk, we are still 30 miles from our village. After asking the way a dozen times (Indians tend to be relaxed about the subtle difference between “left”and “right”), eventually we find it but, in the darkness, it looks like no Indian village we have ever seen.» —“My village hut’s a mansion” by Stephen McClarence in India Telegraph (U.K.) May 6, 2006.
