Love Story
Conversation flowed easily between Vijay, now working on his doctorate in material science and engineering at Stanford University, and Ruth, now teaching full time at Stanford but then studying how DNA packaging goes awry in cancer cells. “Some have instant chemistry,” said Vijay. “We had instant physics.” A parental nudge and OKCupid played a part in bringing them together. In March of 2011, Ruth’s sister Deborah filled out a profile for Ruth. By December, Vijay was ready to propose but being a scientist, he knew he had only a 5 or 10 percent chance of getting the answer he wanted. A year after their first date, and Ruth moving to Washington D.C. for a yearlong fellowship, Vijay took a chance. Ruth did not say yes right away. “Besides, I just wasn’t sure that getting married was the real thing for me.” As her departure date approached, she began to realize how much Vijay had become a part of her life: “Vijay makes me laugh with his Bill Cosby imitations, challenges me to push myself to try new things, sings “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” when I get stressed and freak out about work, and has more confidence in me than I have in myself. He loves me so much that I smile every time I think about it.”

Love Note
They were married twice on July 13 — first by Priest Kasiram Ramakrishna and then by Rabbi Michael Rothbaum. “Both cultures are so rich with meaning and tradition,” Vijay said. “We thought it would be cool for our guests to learn about whatever culture they didn’t know about,” Ruth added. Both families wore Indian dress for the Hindu ceremony and changed into Western clothing for the Jewish one.
