CC and I are friends, I imagine. We rarely talk. He is a busy guy, has a gazillion things to take care of than to involve himself in easy banter with a maami across time zones. Yet, that doesn’t stop me from bothering him at all odd hours. He is a man of few words and out of sheer politeness would nod, smile and play along with my whines, cribs and sulks of the day.
Sometimes we exchange links to articles, photographs etc. I am in awe of his pictures, and since Ive told him that enough times, he’s promised to give me a few frames when we meet in Chennai! Yay!
In return, he asks for my opinion on certain articles, and me, completely stumped on why he‘d care for what I think would play along anyway. Like a dutiful person wasting time on the internet, I would read and stammer a few what I imagine are wise words, that he’d obligingly accept. He called me brainy and beautiful one day. Completely floored despite it being a white lie, I continued on, fearing to question his judgment further, and to read an article which not only puzzled me immensely, but also cracked me up (it’s his latest post btw!).
Then, a few days ago, he sent me this link.
I don’t know anyone who is suffering from it, but that is no excuse for me to flip through an album or site and walk away unaffected. There is no personal angle to this. Just a need to share and see if it makes a difference. The pictures within spoke more emotions than I knew I was capable of.
Am sure it would for you too. Click on the link for it drives home a point that all of us need to be jolted into.
