Nita tagged me in her post to publish a candid and not posed photograph which was taken about 10 years ago. This made me rummage through a lot of albums left untouched since years, to dig out such photographs. So here is a slide show of three such snaps at my different ages. Hope its eligible for the tag. First is the photo taken by my sister when I was explaining to her that there had been pumpkins here and there on our roof during the time she was in hostel. Rest are self explanatory snaps. Just move the mouse on the photo to read the caption.
This tag also made me reminisce about my childhood as I read some old diaries. And now that I have got a blog, I want to share examples of the creative part of my nature with you all. I have already posted examples of my hobby of philately in an earlier post. Like most of the kids, I used to draw and paint but only houses or animals or sceneries. Here are some of my drawings. Kindly note the wonderful (read: impossible) circus act the elephant is performing!!
I also used to note down some news from TV and make my sister be the audience while I played the role of a newsreader. I even featured weather map in my news. Ignore my handwriting and spelling. I still write terrible Hindi.
And then I used to write poems once in blue moon and rhyming scheme mattered the most to me, so I made the lines rhyme in any way possible. After many years I’d written a poem for the tag in this post. Please click on the snaps and enlarge to read the poems.
Finally, I used to make greetings cards for my sister on every occasion..a new month or year or her exams or any festival. Here is an example.
