That's me with Sushmita Sen. We visited a Bollywood film lot, and ran into her. She's a former Miss World and Miss India, now a film actress. She was quite gracious with us. I didn't know who she was, but she was beautiful and glamourous so I had my picture taken with her.

I may not have known who she was, but my student Mitra (who is from Trinidad and Tobago, of Indian descent) knew quite well. He was a little envious, but took it well. I think his exact words were "I hate you, I hate you, I hate you!" (Sorry Mitra. You have to admit it was pretty funny.)
