Once upon a time there was a little boy growing up in India.
His father was a very talented man and toured the world with the Paranjoti Choir. One such trip took his father to France where he met another little boy.
Who became pen pals with his son. Writing to each other for many years…
His son even shared the news of his father’s death when he only eleven.
Fast forward forty years and the two finally meet when the little boy has grown up and tours France with a musical.
This is their story captured in:
India Memory Project: 105 – “A friend from my childhood I had never met”
Don’t just stop with my partner’s story… explore more! The India Memory Project was founded by Anusha Yadav and is a remarkable chronicle of many moments in time.
What an interesting story and that they were in fact able to meet each other in France. Good that the manager was able to pick up the trail 🙂
Yes! It meant a lot to both of them. They continue to keep connecting too!
What a gift!
Truly! They continue to keep in touch and we hope to meet up with his friend and partner in France one of these days. 🙂
I finally got around to reading the story and loved it! The part about the pencils still makes me giggle.
So cute, eh? What was even more amusing was when they met up in France, and his friend asked to borrow my partner’s pen to jot down email IDs… and was handed a Mont-Blanc. Couldn’t help but laugh at the contrast between it and the pencil stubs! 🙂 Our hope is we will all meet up in France next year.
