In 2002, I was to leave for the US in a month.
It had been an expensive affair – paying for the exams, visa, books.
We were completely out of money.

And I needed overcoats.
Michigan is a really cold place.

No one we knew had spare overcoats. 
Heck, no one even wore them in India :)

Dad figured a place in Old Delhi that sells used overcoats.
Took the bus.
The old man was selling them for Rs.400/pc.

We were overjoyed!
We had budgeted Rs.1000

Bought 2 overcoats.
Spent Rs.50 on Kulfi Faluda to celebrate :)

The most beautiful things in life are with our loved ones, in whatever way, whatever form.
