Captured on camera

There are lots of photographs of mom. But one of my favourites is of her wearing a bright purple sari that dad had brought for her from Bangalore, a radiant smile illuminating her face, seemingly bursting with excitement at being captured on camera. It’s not one of the best photos of her but it’s the photo that captures her exuberance the best. It’s a secret to me how she managed to stay joyful amidst tons of adversity, especially as she grew in years.  She was all heart my mom.
