I very rarely take selfies, because, I am not good at it!. And photos including me, that too very rare – because, I will be the one who will be clicking always. So, if one of these happen, it obviously is with someone extra special. This time, it is with Devu…. who has been with our family, before I was born, who has been with us all along. She and her late husband Velayudhan worked for us. They had 2 kids, a boy and a girl, of the same age as my younger sister and myself… both died when they were small kids. After that, we were like their own kids for both of them. Velayudhan died long ago in a tragic accident. Devu is still around. Old age is giving her troubles to walk and move around. But her spirit to keep young and cheerful is still there!. She is not working any more, but comes home time to time. I managed to meet her this time, and it is then this click happened. Indeed, a celebrity in our life. God bless.
The below short story in Malayalam will describe life in those days:
It was not an easy task to capture this little spider, busy at work.
It was something special to witness this Festival of Lights at Kodungallur during this Navarathri.
The distance covered with the distance to cover is within the reach of those who try.
We will be there soon….
Congratulations to #TeamISRO – #Chandrayan2 is a success and #India wins.
As a #PassionatePhotographer, I know how difficult is to click a perfect photo of moon. We congratulate your hard work and dedication and sure that your continued efforts will find success soon.
Swaraj’s death is a huge loss to all of us. She was the best external affairs minister we could ever dream for.
She was also an approachable person. During her visit to address the Indian community in the UAE at an event held in the Indian Social and Cultural Centre in Abu Dhabi, she let each and every attendee who wanted to take a photograph with her do so without so much as a murmur.
Her death has left a vacuum that will be difficult to fill.

Had stopped writing my opinion in The Letters section of newspaper for sometime. This was an instance, I couldn’t resist. Because @SushmaSwaraj was one twitter account that we all could tweet and be sure to get a response with solutions to any problems addressed. Once again, may her soul rest in peace.
(My note in The Letters to the Editor of The National newspaper of tomorrow – Back to letter writing days and columns!).
Huge loss to all Non-Residents. One of the best External Affairs Minister a non-resident Indian can ever dream for. Several times a tweet to her office helped resolve urgent issues and made mission impossible possible!. May her departed soul rest in peace. Photo taken during her visit on 4th December 2018 to address Indian Community in the UAE. She was so courteous enough to allow each and everyone of the attendees, till the last lane to be photographed with her. Tearful pranams #SushmaSwaraj.
