Recently, Nitin Vora took an order on telephone from Unni Krishnan for a VCR. Vora filled out the invoice and had the VCR taken out of stock and packed for pickup by UPS. From Jackson Heights, New York, the package wound its way across the United States and over the Pacific to reach its destination: Krishnan's house in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Florence Manglani recently asked her Hindu husband Arjun if he had known that she was Jewish when he first met her.
