The Notes we Carry

Got rich today morning!! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

As part of my ‘A Sketch a Day’ I tried to draw the 500 rupee note and saw details in it that I had never observed before! There are flowers on the note 😊… 15 languages have been used to mention that this is Rs.500… Ek kadam swachta ke oar, has been added.

The details of the Red Fort are absolutely stunning, and Bapu too! Space distribution to include so many elements with such clarity is truly worth appreciating πŸ˜€

So when you have some time on your hands, do observe the beauty in the notes we carry around without much thought…!

Just Do It!Β 

Went to a public sector bank today. Some passbooks needed to be updated and a new one made as well. 

Sitting behind the counter was a young man. Newly married,  by the way other bank staff were coming to look at his shiny gold watch and pull his leg with some ribald jokes. It also happened to be his birthday 😊. 

He looked at me, partially shy and somewhat embarrassed. But he continued to do my work patiently, even as a queue formed behind me. I thought I’ll be called tomorrow for the new pass book. 😢

Finally after some rebooting of the system and a few false starts, the printer regurgitated all the updated passbooks and also the new one. πŸ˜ƒ

While waiting, I reached into my purse for the Mars Bar chocolate that I usually carry.

As he gave me my passbooks, I handed him the chocolate saying, “Happy Birthday!”

I didn’t know what his reaction would be, it just felt so right to make that connect!

His smile was priceless, after the initial look of surprise 😊

Letter Box that once was…Β 

Once a receptacle for hand written letters and postcards, creator of memories that were lovingly wrapped in satin ribbons… Or provider of  ‘Dear John’  letters, lies forlorn. 

A forgotten relic in a dumpyard, collecting cobwebs, dust and rust… A far cry from the past

Bun and Chai

Bun and chai

Sometimes, the colours
That I carry
Enter my heart too
Like when with some money
You give me a biscuit or two

The streets are not an easy place
For a little one to live
A little kindness is not too much
For everyone to give

If you see me today And I see you too
Stop by, say hello or Hi
Help me make a sale, and I’ll buy
Some Bun and chai 😊
