This picture featuring three couples and six well-heeled SoBo denizens, namely Tina and Anil Ambani, Supriya and Sadanand Sule, and Rima and Manoj Jain, is more than just a snap of close friends caught at a recent event.

Friends, the six are for sure, and have been for a while. What is fascinating though, is that the photograph also recalls three of the country's most iconic personalities, namely industrialist Dhirubhai Ambani, film personality Raj Kapoor, and NCP leader and politician Sharad Pawar, whose progeny are in the picture.

Each of the three men occupy prime positions in the country's contemporary history, in industry, film and politics, having carved a place for themselves in the public imagination through their achievements. That their progeny are friends is a serendipitous coincidence and a testimony to the country's power structures. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
