Judith Kirshner Eger loved to tell the story of her parents' first and only trip to New Delhi, India . . .
Traveling abroad, the Kirshners (who hailed from Brooklyn Heights, NY,) found themselves in New Delhi. They knew no one in the city.
A stranger walked up to the couple. Are you from America? he asked. Do you know Marash Girl? (Identity suppressed for the protection of the innocent!)
Why, yes, they answered, completely flustered that here in the middle of India, a man who they did not know, who did not know them, would walk up to them and ask if they knew the best friend of their daughter, and learn that they did, in fact, know Marash Girl, and knew her well!
