"Honey, I'm shrinking...!"

My sister, an Asian Indian, married an American, Ben, whom she met in Peace Corps in Africa several years ago. They were friends for about seven years before deciding to move their relationship to the next level.

Two years later, their wedding was a nice combination of Indian and American styles, even including the reception dinners.

They lived abroad, moving from country to country every a couple of years due to Ben's job.

Three years after the wedding, they had a nice announcement: a baby.

Few months later, to update the family, my sister took photos of Ben playing with the baby which she posted on the Internet. In one of the photos, the baby was lying down on a quilt with the "playground" of toys hanging above the baby. Ben was lying beside the baby, looking at the toys as well.

Below the photo, my sister typed a caption: "Dad in the land of the Lilliputians".
