“I’m from India, and my husband was in the Peace Corps from South Dakota. He grew up on a sheep ranch in Butte County. We met in Bombay – Mumbai – and fell in love, I guess, and decided to get married. We were married there and then we came back here to the ranch. So I started my life in America on a sheep ranch in Butte County. It was worlds apart because I grew up in a highly populated country. Bombay at the time, I think, had like 13 or 14 million people. My mother’s neighborhood probably had more people than the whole state of South Dakota. The population at Castle Rock, on the sign it said ‘7.’

“It isn’t a typical immigrant story – it’s almost reversed. I grew up in an urban environment, I grew up in a wealthy family with lots of luxuries. I was used to having my own room, and servants, and the availability of a car and a driver. We lived fairly well. We were the cultured community.
