Archaeology and Catering:The Dalal Family

Came to know a lovely couple,the Dalals through friends.Kurush Dalal is an archaeologist and a caterer(and a humorous and jolly guy,quite evident from the photo taken by Kalyan Karmakar, above) while his wife Rhea Mitra-Dalal is a freelance content writer and also writes a food blog.After reading my post on Highway Gomantak,Rhea recognised my aunt,Mrs Acharya as being her music teacher during her childhood! Such a small world!

It was only later that I discovered that Kurush is the son of the well known author and archaeologist Katy Dalal,who passed away, a year ago.It was she who started the business in 1976 and Kurush worked with her till he went away to Pune to complete his M.A and PhD.He then launched Dalal Enterprises in 1998 and there has been no looking back.
