One whole year

It's been a year since Lalita left us bereft.
Luckily, we can still find her magic, her brilliance, her whimsy, and her totally unassuming erudition on her blog.

I was fortunate enough to have actually met her a few times.
Too few, yet enough to leave an indelible imprint of her physical presence and her voice and her laugh.
I often see you still, Lali, in the shape of a head, a close cropped haircut, a tone of voice, in a Rafi rendition.
You remain in my world, unforgettable.

Thanks for posting the link to her blog, Dipali. I had tears in my eyes as I read her last post.
And I am so glad I found you!

I think that was the first post of your that I had ever read.

I'm sure she felt lucky to have known you too. You do have that effect on people :)
