He spent a short time in Houston in 1966, moved to Dallas for two years until 1969, returned to Houston for two years, and then lived in India for 6 months. He had married Vijaya in 1967, permanently settling in Houston in 1973. For a short time, the family lived in southwest Houston at Bellaire and Hillcroft before moving to Alief.
