Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

I regret….
The tear that fell from her eye…
The reason of which was only I !!

Most of the times a picture is clicked of the things which give joy and pleasure to us. We do not take pictures of things which cause pain and become reminders of regret later. However while clicking many shots of my daughter in this attire, three years back we accidentally clicked this photograph too.

It so happened that after dressing her up in  a traditional attire we wanted to keep her innocent looks through photographs. She however had other plans and was not ready to pose and bent upon taking out the dress. I got little annoyed and scolded her for not listening to us. Poor little one stood there then and we started taking her pics but this first photograph made us stop in tracks……We wanted her laughing and smiling and not like this. I regret spoiling the moment for her.

However after some time we both cheered her up and did all the fooling around which she wanted us to do and finally the day ended with some really nice photographs of her.

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....
