Part 1: Yours Humbly, D Photo Frame!!!!

I am humbled by all that I have received for my last post- “Why so serious????” many amazing, inspiring, motivating and nonetheless outwardly supporting comments from people who were like just acquaintances so far and now seemingly close enuf to be called frnds. M still not good wid their names but yes to mention a few- Meow(my closest), Aria(My Shakespearean half-cousin), Descrying the shadows(Mr Blogendra Kumar), Jayashree, Dewdropz, Cinderella, Neers, Mini Mouse alias Munnabehen(she’s usually lost), Salty and Ranju(She jus got me ;)). Sorry if I missed anyone but then u someone haven’t been regular wid me. A few I m not sure myself of yet ;)

Hoping I continue to get my dear frndie’s attention and also the love of the passersbys. Here’s to a long pending request from most of you to have me get out of my Devdassich sadness and post something sweet and simple. Hope you like this….

Before I start how many of us are into decorating our surroundings with pictures of near and dear ones, ones we love???? And how many leave those once adorable photo frames to rot in hell not bothering to ever check on their condition once left. Here’s to all u lazybums- a grievance call of your Photo frame….


Yours Humbly,
D Photo frame

I am your once lovely photo frame
The window of my ever-expanding owner’s heart

People who deserved to get in there
Apply for a temporary stay on my photo card

I mostly hold a love of their life
Sometimes a sibling who’s naughty but dear
Maybe a God to whom I pray and respect

Or a wicked Dad who’s framed purely out of fear

I am often neglected, left in a corner
Rotting in dust and spider-poop
The jobless idiots never look upon me

TV and phone calls keeping them in a loop

I promise to still hold what is dear to them
Never loosing track of my responsibility
This memory I hold- May it never go bad

I will keep it safe to the best of my capability

P.S. please atleast now gimme a thoughtful watch and clean me up for Godsake.Your maid does a shoddy job of jus spanking my ass wid the cloth and managing to unsettle a few specks of dust. I have already given access to my friend the Cockroach to start chewing up this ugly snob I m holding for so long. Atleast he’s regular enough to pay me a visit each night after u have slept…. Hehehe


P.S. from chaggoholicz- Kindly read my last blog if not read already. Sorry if I m fishin for compliments but I guess I really loved how simply I came up wid that and the chaos it cud create;) Hehehe….

I've never carried fotos or foto frames with me. I stay home away from home. Perhaps, a foto-frame would only increase my away-from-home feeling of misery!

Nevertheless, they evoke powerful memories and bygone times which were easily the best.......!

Imagine...... a solitary evening, mild sunlight, hot tea, chirping birds, faint sounds of goats bleeting, a lone dog barking far away, light music and......... looking into the eyes of someone in a fotograph!
Reminisce, right?

I miss my childhood! Momentarily, U took me there!

Good post Chirag! As always......
God Bless

'Or a wicked Dad who’s framed purely out of fear'

Jayashree and Just Jay said...

Very neatly written!... it thought me if i was a Photo Frame then what would have happened.... Its time now for all of us to hear the voice of the "Frame"

PS. Photo frame ke naam par ek Ghana gati hoon!.

Nagme hain, shikwe hain
Kisse hain, baatein hain
Baatein bhool jaati hain
Yaadein yaad aati hain
Yeh yaadein kisi dil-o-jaanam ke
Chale jaane ke baad aati hain.

Duniya mein hum saare
Yaadon ke hai maare
Kuch kushiyaan, thode gham
Yeh humse, inse hum
Yaadein, o meethi meethi yaadein
Khatti meethi yaadein

Well done C!, how could you think of imagining such things in life? Somewhere down the line its a lesson for all of us to Preserve those old precious memories when you are alone those are the only things which would stay with us for ever.

Great Work man, Keep it up!

Cheers
J

Unknown said...

well thats sooo cool..
lovely post..

"The window of my ever-expanding owner’s heart
People who deserved to get in there
Apply for a temporary stay on my photo card" - soo true.. because they again get replaced with new precious moments that is formed.. or they get expanded..

Memory.. thats what it is all about.. just taking us back to tell us how things were.. and why u should make an effort to keep in touch with that person if u are not..

hehe i have quite a few photo stands myself.. and thankfully they are not in a corner.. n nope no cockroaches have visited them.. hehe yet..

aria said...

I read it with a huge grin. :D I never bought photo frames on my own but I was always gifted some (as usual) as birthday presents.. and then I had to struggle to find a suitable image.. I look horrible in photos.. so I ended up framing my sister's pics for a while and then they disappeared somewhere when the initial charm wore off.. heh.. now of course my mother is the one who takes care of all those photo frames of sis and nieces.. yea yea.. I still am lazy ..

that story aisde.. thank you for that honorable mention and I love your poetry .. :)

Meow said...

My Dear Chaggs,
Firstly I am humbled by my mention in your friends list, so thanks a ton.

Secondly, you did remind me of the fact that my photo frames actually do need my attention :) & so I am finally trying to address their grievances..

Cheers
Meow
