Interfaith Marriage: Jogesh Hazarika and Lily Levi
Jogesh Hazarika and Lily Levi
Jogesh Hazarika and Lily Levi had their reception in the Punjab Club. The late President, Mr. Fakhruddin Ahmed (far right in photograph) was a close friend of Jogesh, and attended the wedding.
Their daughter Esther says that her parents had a love affair for 12 years and did not relent till their parents consented to the marriage.
Jogesh Hazarika, a well-respected social worker, has a book written about him called Indomitable Spirit.
There were several interfaith marriages in the Jewish community though this is the only one for which we have pictures and data.
