Something about Pran’s entry in Bimal Roy’s ‘Biraj Bahu‘ (1952) reminded me of my father.

Maybe it was the shirt. Or the hair. Because my father was certainly never as menacing as that.

And then there is my mother, looking quite a film star.

These wedding photos were most definitely taken by an uncle, Fazalbhoy Petiwala in 1960, when she was 20, and my dad 27.
