    Salams Bahar, This is Madeeha.
    We were in Maths at uT Austin together. I have thought of you very often but wasn’t able to find you. The just last night I tried to look again and voila who do I see? someone just as she looked back in 1998, so pretty fresh and happy. Delighted to finally see your face again. Hope you are keeping well. Can I contact you by e-mail? I don’t do(don;t have time for) Facebook or twitter (am in a non stop hamster wheel with two kids et al :-). Your website/blogs are amazing. Well done girl!

  3. I love your blog so much I feel like we’re the same person! Lovely to meet you. I’m an Osho loving, yoga doing, terrified bonus mom in a quest to know the whole world. We should be friends.
