  6. Wonderful story, Khati! I love that you met, then re-met….like it was meant to be. So cool to have the photos then and now!

      Yes, it was a happy day. I had lost touch when I moved away for residency for several years; when I returned to the Bay Area, I spied her across a crowded Golden Gate Park filled with International Women’s Day celebration. Funny thing was, I also spotted my long-lost uncle, who had become a Sufi and was performing on the stage next to the crowd that day. Anyway, the rest is history.

  7. John Shutkin says:

    Just lovely, Khati! Truly a perfect marriage of great photos and RetroFlash captions. And, indeed, a happy marriage in the most literal sense, too. Congratulations on all your anniversaries!
