Being born in Tanzania and having a household that was as full of African lore and Swahili as it was full of Indian lore and Gujarati and Hindi, I have carried a lot of traditions and epitaphs with me.

The Africans say that a human being dies two deaths. The first is when his physical body dies and the second is when the last person who remembers him dies.

To my friend, all my love.
