On our way to Fontana for dinner at my niece’s home.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    You are wearing THE most beautiful sari (is that what it’s called?)!!

    • Zakiah says:

      Yes Dian. It is called a Sari. While we were waiting for the limo a family walked up the steps and complimented me with the most beautiful words. Of course i was embarrassed, because every one was so well dressed and had make-up on and stuff. My nephew took the picture. The older gentleman and the young lady with the red dress are my nephew’s wife’s uncle and his daughter. They came down from San Jose to be with us. The young girl with the white shirt and jeans is Shagufta who is at UCLA now. She is standing next to her mother whose name is Sadiya. (different spelling from that of my daughter.)

    What a lovely family gathering. Is the girl with the white bag the student?

  3. As always you are elegant, Zakiah.
    Love ❤

  4. You look so regal. 🙂

    • Zakiah says:

      Thank you dear Matt and Michel. I don’t know about regal or elegant. But we had a good time going the hour and half to my niece’s place and eating excellent food.

    Although the clothes are beautiful, it is the smiles that light up the photo and pour radiance on everyone in the picture!!
