I’m yet to meet Mishran in real life, though he has promised to take me around the Nelliampathy Hills on his yellow bike if and when I visit my hometown of Palakkad, Kerala.
Yesterday he sent me these photos he had taken just because. And graciously allowed me to use them in my blog. I did ask him to write captions, but he begged off. Just some random shots, he said, you can use them anyway you want.
He did say though, that this dragonfly reminded him of me.
Rusty, tired and a bit frayed around the edges – yet wouldn’t give up. I do see the resemblance.
Thank you, Mishran. Couldn’t have asked for a lovelier gift!
