She once offered me a ride in her car seeing the heavy camera slung on my back; then scolded me for being more focused on my film than on taking a dip in the Ganga. I told her the camera was University property & I couldn’t risk damage to it. She said ‘Beta, is pavitra paani ke kuch boond chidkaa dena tere camera par, or teri film aur khubsurat ban jaayegi.’  I did take your advice, Indu Masi. May you continue to guide us. Om Shanti.”
