In this day and age, meeting someone special is becoming more and more difficult. Thus, more relationships are starting online than ever before. However long before the advent of CoffeeMeetsBagel, Tinder, and Eharmony, our desi culture had our own expansive network for relationships with an even higher success rate. This network is called our mothers. And this is truly where the story of Sanam begins - from the hearts of their mothers.

  Anam and Samir’s mothers were connected through family and began speaking to each other on the phone. After significant contemplation, research, and Google searches, it was decided that Samir and Anam should meet. As fate would have it, Samir had a fellowship interview in San Antonio where Anam was studying, thus the timing was just right.
