Eighteen years later — a first!

Coming from New Delhi, I’ve always known Stanford would broaden my cultural horizons in a multitude of ways. But on Halloween weekend, that implicit knowledge was manifested in reality in its truest form. Halloween spirit (although even spirit seems like an understatement) took over, and I felt like the course of life before and after that weekend was inconsequential. The holiday suited me pretty well, as that is how I’ve grown up celebrating most grandiose Indian festivals – with the zest and zeal virtually like there is no tomorrow!
