Five photos, five stories – Part 1: Time stands still


This is in response to Kritika’s Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. Thank you, for giving me this challenge, you know how crazy silly I am for such things. 😀

The challenge is – “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”


If you discount those faint electricity cables crisscrossing the frame, this photo I took in a village barely a twenty minute drive from where I live could easily have passed for 1940s vintage shot. Empty roads, a govt building built right next to a large, shady Peepul tree and some children lounging around with nothing to do on a hot, humid Summer morning.

My first nomination is Amy

I hope you enjoy it, if you haven’t already!


About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.
