It's been a big 24 hours for me.
I will have more to say about that first bit later. For now, here's a bad, grainy, stalker-ish picture I snapped with my camera phone a couple of minutes after I met Shabana ji, while she was talking with someone else. The gray-haired fellow to the left is Shabana ji's equally revered and gifted husband, the screenwriter and songwriter Javed Akhtar.
And here's another one (again, bad light, bad color), taken about an hour later while Shabana ji and Javed sahib were taking questions from the largely student crowd. I don't know who the bald-headed guy in the middle of my shot is, but the woman whose face appears to be poking out of the upper-right quadrant of his head is my wonderful former Hindi teacher Naseem ji, who did me the honor of introducing me to Shabana ji at a moment when I was too flabbergasted and sweaty-palmed to do it myself.
As I said, more details to follow.
