Reena’s Exploration Challenge #109

Welcome to Week 109!

My thoughts go back to a stark neighbourhood – identical yellow buildings with numbers painted on them. I enter 109, the building where my uncle lives. It is a rainy day, trains are stuck on water-logged tracks, college is closed and I have walked on the tracks to reach there. My cousins are at home – thanks to the rains. We queue up for tickets to the latest blockbuster, but no luck – there are so many idlers like us. We decide to spend the afternoon around the carrom board or card games. I’m wearing borrowed clothes, as my wet dress is being ironed by my aunt – in an effort to dry it.

Back to the present – what if we had the internet and mobile phones at that point of time? Where are the wonders of those lost years? The words crossing my mind now are Back to Basics, Simplicity, Stories  …..  No, I can’t have so many words as prompts.

So, here’s an image for this week.
