Love Across Boundaries

The study of politics often requires an intense focus on the contentious mechanics of deal-making and diplomacy between parties in competition for scarce resources. However, in the quiet of summer here on the UMass campus, the Department of Political Science was delighted to get a reminder of the softer side of international relations. The latest issue of the UMass alumni magazine featured the touching story of Anil (’73PhD) and Bannu (‘73G) Shrikhande. Bannu is an alumna of the Department of Political Science, and the two met and fell in love while studying at UMass in 1972. For the full story of how their friendship blossomed into romance, see the Spring 2019 issue of UMass Magazine.
