Marty's sister Roberta arrived from New York early Tuesday morning, and is pictured above smiling if not 100% over jet lag. She will be teaching feature writing for three months at the Asian College of Journalism, a journalism school started by one of her grad school classmates from Columbia who also runs the local English language newspaper here. We are delighted to have her with us and perhaps she will be willing to share some of her insights teaching journalism in India. (We also appreciate that she brought nearly 80 packages of tuna fish, since the local stuff is just not to our taste......)
This is one of the examples of "serendipity" in our posting here. We didn't even know about Roberta's Chennai connection until after we told her we were coming here. It turns out that she has had an invitation for several years to teach here, but never did so.
