I came down from my office to take a break. There’s a tea stall not too far away from my office building. Probably just some 50 steps away. Tea stalls are a common sight in India. Almost every street has one. Apart from tea, they also serve some snacks, biscuits, cigarettes and some other such petty eatables, drinkables and smoke-ables. Though we have tea and coffee machines at work, me and some of my colleagues prefer to drink tea from this tea stall because
- It’s an excuse to leave our cabins
- Involves walking, best way to catch a break
- The guy at the tea stall serves pretty good lemon tea
- Our office does not have a smoking room
So there we were, having lemon tea and smokes and from far away, I see this kid riding this cart. And I was so amused to see that dog sitting in front. I told my colleagues to turn around and take a look.
As the kid came a bit closer. I told the kid to stop. At that moment the dog became alert. He was watching my every move. May be he thought I would mean harm to his master. I told the kid I’m gonna take a picture. Now, kids are exuberant, and they won’t hesitate to get a picture taken. He instantly agreed. I didn’t have my camera with me at that moment. Who would’ve though that I would come across such a sight while I went for a break? So I took out my Sony Ericsson C510 (yup I still use it) and took this shot.
