One can say, in some ways, it was a letdown. I mean my first meeting in person with Khyati Ben. We had been in email touch prior to that. I was in US, and had made plans to go down to Los Angeles and meet her. For identification purposes, she had sent me her photograph – a most dazzling blonde, with sharp features and attractive eyes, carrying a red rose.

And yes, also to carry a red rose. That would have been the identification to each other. Then, we had code words also defined for a more certain identification. On seeing the red rose in her hands, I was supposed to approach her and ask the question –“Aasmaan mein kitne sitaare hain?”.

But these plans did not work out, as planned. 🙂 I was supposed to be wearing a black trench coat, felt hat, and dark glasses, and carrying a red rose in my hand. And Khyati ji was supposed to be dressed like. . . well, without any description, I refer to the photograph she had shared in email.
