Tanmay, Raja’s son was very considerate. When Raja drove me home on my arrival, he said, “I will make Margarita for you, you must be very tired. Margarita is good for tired bodies.” I said, ” That is wonderful! I am not tired, but I accept your offer”.
The evening of August 25, was there for us to savor. Our seemingly idle chat many many years back had turned into reality. Fortunately the loan had been paid back. US visa hurdles were overcome. Uncle Scrooge Delta Airline had brought me to the American land somewhat hungry. But I was in good shape despite the cattle class and the impoverishment.
The Margarita was excellent and with Kumud around, food had to be very very nice too. We talked and drank and ate, not necessarily in the same order or proportions. Bliss!
