Looks like life completed a full circleHas something from your childhood resurfaced in your life as an adult?
When I was young, the nearest place my parents could take us for Sunday Mass was a Chapel in the Vatican Embassy, in New Delhi. It was here that I first saw Anand, Vijay and Ashok – the Amritraj brothers. They would, I presume, stay in the Ashoka Hotel and attend Sunday Mass at the Embassy Chapel. They stood out, for various reasons, but one of them was the bright tee-shirts they wore – in solid colours, reds, bright blue, striking yellow etc. My parents would mention them, in hushed tones and I would wonder who these guys were. I didn't know much about tennis and who these entities were but recall seeing them on various occasions, even at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Delhi.
Vijay was once the Chief Guest for the Sports Day at the school my brother studied. Years later, after I was married, two of the brothers were at an event I attended. I have also seen them at Mumbai and Chennai airports. Once Anand was on the same flight as I was. I kept bumping into these celebrity brothers throughout my life.
The strange part is that they attend Mass at a Church where we often go to. After so many years, I got to speak to one of them, the other day. This whole thing looks surreal like we were dodgems bumping into each other.
Have you had any such experience – when you kept meeting/seeing the same person, as in a stranger, over and over again, at different phases of your life?
