I told my wife when we were married 10+ years ago, "Anything you find on 
my computer, it's research." This post falls under that clause.

Basically, there's nothing I wouldn't do for SAJA or our community, 
including searching through the new Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, 
looking for South Asian connections. After years of making this supreme 
sacrifice, I am happy to report on the following four items in this year's 

* Sonia Dara becomes the first South Asian model to be featured in the issue.

* She and four three other models were shot in Rajasthan.

* The other South Asian connection is Maldives, which was another of the 
locations and where the cover was shot.

* Four models in all were shot in the Maldives.
