From Kochin to Canada!” Samir wondered as he parked his car,“ Mita has come a long way; all god’s will!”

Samir Sheikh and Mita Cohen were close friends from childhood. Eventually, their faiths came in between – Samir a muslim and Mita a Malabar jew.

Implication of a muslim man waiting outside a syanagogue dawned upon Samir, when the police officer demanded,“sir, show me some identification, please!

  2. It’s a shame that simple acts like waiting for someone can’t be done any more without raising suspicion. But that’s the world we’re making for ourselves. The story of these two is moving and sad. I hope they find a way to meet again.

  3. A good story, Abhijit. This is sad. Some people in the west are starting to think Moslems are all enemies. This type of situation may become more and more frequent. My son is part Indian born and raised in the U.S. yet shaved all the hair off his face after 9/11. Fear goes both ways. 😦 — Suzanne
