It would appear that fate like to play games with my travels.
Two Julys ago I had been given a last-minute invitation to attend (i.e. I crashed ) a wedding, which was hosted by a well-known Dar family in Srinagar. Last May I had been given a last-minute invitation to visit Hawaii, which again I was hosted by a well-known Dar family in Honolulu. Although both my hosts share the Dar family name, went above and beyond in taking care of me despite last-minute arrangements, and hail from the same northern region of South Asia, these two families really have no relation to each other (at least it doesn’t seem to me that they know of each other directly).
This weekend I’ve been invited to attend a wedding in Hawaii, hosted by the Dar family. And I’m doing all of it within a 3 day time frame. It already feels like a deja vu. Like it’s meant to be. I could be looking into this too much, but I guess it’s what allows the world to twinkle before my eyes.
Regardless, will anyone be around?
