This saree has a very different story.
in 2008 my mother in Law told me that her best friend’s (whom I call kaku) nephew (from bombay) coming to Boston to study and she gave him our no. I never received any phone call from that nephew. In 2009 When I went for my sister’s wedding, I met Kaku and she mentioned again. I got back to Boston and in one of those missing home nights I found N on Facebook and send him a msg, we met soon after and N became part of our family. His parents came for graduation and became our Mama – mami. somehow along the way we forgot that someone else introduced us. Now they are my mama mami. Whenever they visit Boston they spend time with us.
Soon N met a pretty girl N Who was coming to USA to study. Their wedding was planned for Dec in India but parents wanted them to get married before she starts her school in Aug. When N & N came to invite us for their Civil wedding in Town Hall Ashish and I offered them our home to get married. We couldn’t imagine them signing the documents and be done with such an important milestone in one’s life. so we had a wedding in our backyard in a week. Their families were in four different cities in Dubai and India. the google hangout made them a part of this celebration. I forget the prep and work, all I remember is the fun and party. We wish them happiness together. When they went to India for their traditional wedding this saree came along from his parents. A local News paper published our story if you want to read more.
