How often does this happen?

Yesterday, while climbing up Murray Rd from the Falls, I heard somebody yelling my name. Sure enough, Aabhas Chandra – a colleague from long past – a decade in fact – had somehow managed to recognize me in a crowd thru all the changes I have gone thru in that decade!!! Both of us were in a hurry at that moment – so we scooted off at that time after exchanging pleasantries…
And then we got together this morning in the one way I know how to catch up with long lost friends – we ran for half an hour in front of the Niagara Falls and then grabbed a Starbucks!!!
Evidently, the arcs of lives meet more than once!!!

    When there are 1.2B Indians at the falls for 4th of July, it is not surprising one of them
    Is your friend ;)! We experienced the feeling if being in India 4 years ago at the same place.

    Thanks Rajib, it was good meeting you after a looooong time. Thanks to Rajasekhar for letting me know that you are at Niagara. Next time when we run together, hope I can run a little more and faster :-). Hemant, no we did not catch up on ghazals :-).
