It was afternoon I reached Dushanbe's small airport which read Dushanbe International Airport. A professor and his friend were there to pick me up, and it was the professor's colleague who was my host for the next 15 days. As always, I was super excited because I was getting a chance to stay with the family in a way to getting access to mingle with locals which is by anyway a traveler's wish. The family I stayed with had two beautiful kids (Fafzia and Mohammad) and Khurshid Sir and his wife, beautiful Farangiz, had made my stay super memorable for all my life. Fafzia, 6 years old girl, intelligent smart and Mohammad, 2 years boy, was on his later infant stage, crawling and salivating every other objects in the house. In Tajikistan they speak Tajik and Russian is spoken by the educated masses, intelligentsia or among power elites, so is the case for English. To my displeasure the family (other than the prof) were Tajik, which was of no help to me, even if i did my homework on basic Russian. Interestingly enough, after a week or so we talked almost about everything through broken Russian and sometimes through sign language.
