In the city of Bangalore, there lives a little girl who simply adores cloth. Give her a piece of cloth, and she keeps herself entertained for quite some time – if she is in the mood for it, of course. 🙂 Most of the times, she is up for playing with cloth, though.
Nappies, dresses – hers and her mother’s, handkerchiefs, wiping clothes, bedsheets, pillow covers, towels, napkins – she plays with anything and everything, as long as it is made of cloth.
Her Amma and Appa need to keep a close eye on her. They never know what piece of cloth their daughter would have pulled over her face at any given point of time.
They say, “Silence is golden. But when you have a baby, silence is suspicious.” The little girl’s Amma and Appa are, slowly, understanding the truth that lies in this adage. In their daughter’s case, complete silence for more than a few minutes usually involves a piece of cloth.
Dreamzandclouds had nominated me for the Five Photos Five Stories (FPFS) Challenge some time back. I accepted.
From her blog, “FPFS challenge requires me to post a photo each day for 5 consecutive days and attach a post to it. It may be a fiction or non-fiction piece, a poem or simply a short paragraph. Next, each day I have to nominate one fellow blogger to carry on this challenge. The person nominated further can either accept it and continue the challenge or reject it – it is entirely his/her choice.”
This post is the first of the five-part series for the Challenge. I am going to tweak the rules a little bit and not do the photo posts for five consecutive days. Instead, I will do them for the five days that I have the physical and mental bandwidth to do so.
I am not nominating anyone here, but if you love the sound of the Challenge, do feel free to take it up!
