I met Swapna last evening. She gets married tomorrow, and this is the only time we manage to spend discussing the year that's been, people et al – at her residence, while she sits like a bride-to-be, waiting for the Mehendi to dry.
I also got to meet her brother Kumar. Ditto for her mother who had prepared delicious Avlakki (also known as Poha / Powa in North India). It felt very nice meeting a very hospitable and humble family. Things have been changing for Swapna for the better these days, and I only wish her the best!
