Sabeeha Johnson's story, THE SPICE BAZAAR, is about Nalini, a marketing executive born in the U.S.A. of Indian parents. She chooses to have a match made for her after dating blonds and realizing she wants a husband who shares her traditions and values in raising a family. She goes to THE SPICE BAZAAR, an Indian grocery store/restaurant to meet the Indian accountant the matchmaker and her parents have selected for her, as they said, to balance her whimsical, freewheeling spirit, with a quiet, deliberate personality. When she meets Lokesh, sparks fly. She doesn't know that he's not the accountant. And he's reluctant to 'fess up for more reasons than the fact he's fallen instantly in love with her.
