Weekly Photo Challenge: Waiting

As kids each one of us plans a hundred things to do when we grow up and unawares of the responsibilities and duties that come with growing up we still desperately wait and wait and wait to grow up! Every generation goes through the same process….

My daughter is no different and she is forever planning what she wants to be when she grows up. One day she wants to be a painter and next she wants to be a teacher like her favorite one in school. She wants to be a doctor like her grandmother and wants to go to an office like somebody else too.

Her father is her hero. And though she changes her plans many times, one thing has always been constant….. she wants to be a Fighter Pilot like her dad! She has seen him dress up in his flying attire since she was born and has been forever trying to salute the right way!

Yes!! She is waiting to grow up and fly, fly and fly….

And till she waits to grow up ……Our pilots and their fighters are ever ready and just waiting to take off!!

This fellow here is waiting too…. for his food! On one of our trips we happened to visit a crocodile farm where these beasts are bred in captivity before rehabilitation in natural environment.

About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....

  8. Your daughter is so adorable with so many beautiful dreams. It would be cool if she became a fighter pilot. My son wants anything about the army…Happy Holidays!
