    Vidooshak: MM’s a personal friend. So this certainly wasn’t the first time we met. 🙂 We spoke about you, actually. I ranted about how you find my poyem-beeyems “heavy”. 😉

    Wonder what`s going on in his mind. And what all, those eyes have seen, huh?

    I just happened to follow your link in the comments & saw this same photo there.
    Just wondering, has the search for “The suitable boy” ended and are Congrats in order?:)

    You may delete this comment if you wish.

    Piper: He was so painfully shy, I kept looking longingly at his beautiful face but didn’t want to make him uncomfortable by asking. Then, while I was focusing on a landscape, I saw him appear on my lens and I just knew that I’d regret it if I walked away without clicking. So I nervously asked. And he quietly and politely consented. Wish more people had his dignity.
    About the award: I’m headed right over! 🙂

    Rajni: The Boy’s been around for a while, cape, red knickers and all. So you found him, huh? And yes, the gooey stuff is written for me. 😉

    Hey please dont feel pressurized to do a post. It would ruin the flow of your blog. I just wanned to let you know how much I love the way you write. That`s all 🙂

    I prefer your poems to your photography. Just saying!

    Piper: Lol! Relax, girl, it’s a silly blog, not a work of art that I can mess up. 😉 Besides, ever met a Leo who won’t spit & polish her trophies?

    D: Oh crap! It’s you I visited! Sorry about that comment saying I didn’t know you existed! 😳 All confused I got. And whatever happened to a picture spouting a 1000 words? 😕

    Such a wonderful portrait, OJ. Quality, thass what it has!

    Dipali: A function of both the subject and the tool. 🙂

  12. D August 23, 2008 at 11:48 am #

    Oh, well there are pictures that speak a 1000 words and there are pictures that don’t. Or maybe, I’m just growing blind/deaf, whatever!

  13. Orange Jammies August 24, 2008 at 10:32 am #

    D: Fair enough. Maybe my words are just more voluble. 🙂

    Woh chehre ke zurriyon mein sadiyon ka phera…

  15. Orange Jammies August 26, 2008 at 3:03 pm #

    Dadoji: I won’t pretend to be clever enough to know who said that, but it’s beautiful. 🙂

    Jagjit & Chitra Singh’s ghazal “Woh Kagaz Ki Kashti”

    Available at http://www.raaga.com/channels/hindi/moviedetail.asp?mid=G0000137 for your listening pleasure

    Ye Daulat Bhi Le Lo, Ye Shohrat Bhi Le Lo
    Bhale Cheen Lo Mujhse Meri Jawaani
    Magar Mujhko Lauta Do Bachchpan Ka Saawan
    Wo Kaagaz Ki Kasthi Wo Baarish Ka Paani

    Mohalle Ki Sabse Nishaani Purani
    Wo Budhiya Jise Bachche Kehte The Naani
    Wo Naani Kee Baaton Mein Pariyon Ka Dera
    Wo Chehre Ke Jhuriyon Mein Sadiyon Ka Phera
    Bhulaaye Nahin Bhool Saqta Hai Koi
    Wo Choti See Raaten Wo Lambi Kahaani

    Kadi Dhoop Mein Apne Ghar Se Nikalna
    Wo Chidiya Wo Bulbul Wo Thithli Pakadna
    Wo Gudiya Ki Shaadi Pe Ladna Jhagadna
    Wo Jhoolon Se Girna, Wo Gir Ke Sambhalna
    Wo Pithal Ke Challon Ke Pyaare Se Tho’fe
    Wo Tuti Hui Chudiyon Ki Nishaani

    Kabhi Re’t Ke Oonche Tilon Pe Jaana
    Gharonde Banana, Banaake Mitaana
    Wo Maasoom Chaahat Ki Tasveer Apni
    Wo Khwabon Khilono Ki Taabir Jaageer Apni
    Na Duniya Ka Gham Tha Na Rishton Ke Bandhan
    Badi Khoobsoorat Thi Wo Zindgaani

    Dadoji: Ahh. That one. I believe I’ve heard it.
