Don’t Let Your Mother See this Post…

July 18, 2010

…because South Asian Bar Association memberships have spawned at least two marriages (not to mention that Kumar Pathak thing).  The San Francisco Chronicle profiles one of them today: the love story between Fairuz Abdullah and Monty Agarwal.

Both are lawyers and met when Monty was the President of SABA-NC, and Fairuz attended a dinner event sponsored by the group. Despite Monty playing hard to get, friendship and then love blossomed.  But their families’ religious differences caused them to keep their relationship confidential for years. You know the rest of the story, right? No…we’re not talking about glitzy dance numbers and white saris in the rain.  Rather, the usual “why didn’t you tell us this nice Hindu boy was so great?” from the family. Moral of the story? Law conquers all.
