Photographs are possibly the best way to capture a moment and retain it for a longer period of time. Here, I’d like to talk about a family photograph which is hung on the wall of my living room. It is the most cherished memory I have with my family.

This photograph was taken about 10 years ago when I was a kid. It was clicked in a park where I went for a picnic with my parents and grandparents. We were sitting on the grass which was cut in a fine pattern. The garden in the photograph was in full bloom the time we visited there, so the background of this picture emphasizes a rich riot of colours. All of us were very happy that day. As my grandfather loved singing, so to make this picnic special he started singing an old Bollywood song for my grandmother. The picture reveals that she was blushing at that moment.

I was sitting on the lap of my grandmother wearing a graphic t-shirt paired with capri pants and matching shoes. My father was laughing seeing my grandmother bashful on hearing the song. The photograph was clicked by my mother, so she’s not present in the picture.

The photograph is probably special to me in its own way, as my grandparents are not alive anymore and whenever I look at this picture, it gives me a mixed feeling of happiness and sadness. This is the most treasured reminder of my deceased grandparents which I’d preserve for the rest of my life.
