Meher's Parents, Roshan and Fali

This is a photograph Meher took of her parents, Roshan and Fali, before she left India. She remembers taking it using only window light, in her parents' bedroom. She can tell they were dressed up to go somewhere special. Her mom loved wearing pearls and her dad would not be wearing a tie unless he had to.
