I think some of the Rajib effect is rubbing off on Sharmila too!
You remember how serendipity hits me when I am expecting it the least during my travels as I run into people from my past? Seems like in a short 7 days’ trip to India, Sharmila got a taste of it too.
First she ran into our old friends – Sanjay and Anita from Dallas (now live in Phoenix) in a hotel. Then she ran into Joydeep (also from Dallas who now lives in Minneapolis) at the airline lounge. Finally, she ran into my friends from early childhood – Nirmalya and Rituparna – who now live in Houston – while waiting to board the flight back home!!!
Must be some correlation with parameters like US holiday calendar dates, Indian holiday calendar dates, India-US airline schedule, India -US airline ticket rates, Weather/temperature, etc.
