When two students from Nepal changed plans, the result was Namaste India
Life, as the saying goes, is what happens when you're busy making other plans. Bibek Rauniyar's plans were to move to America, get a bachelor's degree in chemistry and math and then start his career. Instead, when the economy crashed he ended up starting a restaurant -- Namaste India -- with the first person he met when he arrived in America, Ramnath Sah.

Rauniyar is also from Nepal, and although their families knew each other in that country, the two had never met. But Rauniyar had worked at both yak & Yeti and Jewel of India while he studied at the University of Colorado, and that experience came in handy when he and Sah decided to open a restaurant in Arvada six months ago.
Today Sah runs the kitchen at Namaste India while Rauniyar serves as the general manager.
Find out whether their restaurant might factor into your own plans when my review of Namaste India is posted here tomorrow.
