The Booky Meme

Sripriya of srikar's kitchen has passed me the Booky Meme. The rules are as under:
-> Pick up the nearest book
-> Open to page 123
-> Find the 5th sentence
-> Post the next three sentences
-> Tag 5 people and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

Here I go:
1. But I continued thinking about it while I swept the stepping-stones in the courtyard that morning, until I began to feel the sort of buzzing in my head that comes from a thought circling and circling with nowhere to go, just like a bee in a jar.
2. Soon I put down the broom and went to sit in the dirt corridor, where the cool air from beneath the foundation of the main house drifted soothingly over my back.
3. And then something came to mind that I hadn't thought about since my very first week in Kyoto.

Does anyone know from which book I have picked these lines from? I am sure it is not a difficult one...The only hint I can drop is, there was a Motion picture made on this book some 3 years back.

I would like to pass this meme, in alphabetical order, to:
Aparna
Arundhati
Jayashree
Sunshinemom
Vegetable Platter
