Meeting a Fellow Internee

Kwai Li introduced me to Joy Ma who lives in San Mateo. I had invited Joy to the book launch but it was real short notice and she couldn't make it. We did, however, arrange to meet in Berkeley. She told me she was actually born in the camp, long after Bobby and I had already left. We had an intense, emotional meeting. She bought two books, one for herself and mum, and the other for her brother. 

Later that evening, she emailed me with an amazing story. She told me that her mum immediately went through the book and recognized my father. She said she remembered his kindness and generosity. When Joy was born he came to see her mum at the hospital and brought her a basket of fruit he had ordered from Calcutta. This has come full circle!! It was very moving.
