Krishna at Naini Tal

Krishna at Naini Tal
I met Krishna by chance in Naini Tal (Uttaranchal, India). He grew up in India but now resides in the United States. He returns fairly often to India and I count myself lucky to have met him and enjoyed his company, albeit briefly. With his brother, who speaks no English and bears little resemblance to him, I spent a great evening dining and drinking whisky. I finally made it back to my hotel some time after midnight — I had to climb the wall to get in as the gate had been locked. Evenings like that stick in the memory, for all the right reasons.

One day I trust I'll catch up with Krishna and his brother in India again. The country and its people are like that.
