    This is my favorite portrait of yours ever, ever, ever. Their eyes, their mouths, their clothes - light and dark, the corner of your room, their affection for each other and for the photographer, thank you. I hope they have a copy of it. I've seen them both in your photos/portraits, but I don't remember their names. Forgive me, rauf.

    Ruth, one is Arshi huging and Amrita. They are sitting in my room, i mean the old room. Amrita is married and is in Chennai, Arshi as you know is in England now.
    This picture was taken a few days before Arshi got married. Arshi got married first and was not here in Amrita's wedding. i sent her Amrita's wedding pictures.

    Raufie dear,
    this is a wonderful show of friendship and affection, it does tell the story ... lovely, gentle ...
    I miss close, unincumbered friendships with other women - wow, to think how close and unhibited a group we were back in our early 20's in Argentina...

    Without knowing you are pointing out the voids of this society of mine.

    Well, it is what it is - nothing is perfect, however, much is sacrificed.

    Love and hugs

    Nothing is perfect dearest Angel, all societies have some flaw or the other. there is a great deal of closeness in friendship in India. there is nothing like having our own space with no interference here. Arshi and Amrita are closer to each other than own sisters. They both studied Microbiology. now unfortunately seperated. Arshi is in England. i attended Amrita's wedding also.

    Here in India this kind of closeness is fast disappearing. The educated IT society is building walls and insulating themselves. Now we don't even know our own neighbours. i am also afraid. We are afraid of interference, afraid of loss.
