We were all born in one big family. Spent decades together sharing the love, pulling legs, fighting even for silly reasons.
Complaining to our mummy from She took my sketch pen to He is wearing my favorite shirt to She emptied my nail polisher to what not.
Days go by, one by one we get married. Some stay closer, most stay far off place. Initially, there are regular phone calls every day, and it shrinks to a couple of them in a month. Then even that fades and everyone is busy with their own family, kids, commitments, and responsibilities. But, at least some will get an opportunity to meet each other during festival periods and celebrations.
But, me living far away from my family, have to save all those emotions, celebrations and all for the summer vacation. For that is the time I visit India and spend time with my sisters, uncles and their kids.
There are no words that can describe the meetup of the siblings. Whenever we get together that is the time we start bringing back those old memories and enjoying every moment of it. Those childhood moments are not mere fights, those are memories. If you did not have such fights, I pity you.
Because, what do you do when you are alone? What memories do you play back in those moments? What stories do you talk about when you meet together?
If you do not have any such moment? We do not have a time machine to go back and enjoy those moments.
So I always make sure that I preserve these moments as my treasure. One such treasure is what you were looking in this post.
This was taken during my last visit to India. We were about to leave India in few days and have to miss my loves for next one year. So, after a wonderful time in the Marina beach in Chennai, we were leaving for the home.
I was walking with a heavy heart that I am going to miss them for a year, I cannot come back to this moment in time.
But thanks to the gifts we have today with the Selfie culture! Yes, you can’t stop the time. But definitely freeze it on the frame.
And that is when my son captured this valuable selfie or should I say, Groupie, of us. It’s so valuable because this is what I will live with for the next one year before I make my next visit to India.
There is always a place for everyone in the family in the Selfie! This was another memorable moment that was frozen in time for my treasure. Not of the best quality, but one of the best time spent with family!
Want to enjoy more?
Now, imagine this picture with a wider angle showing not just the beauty of the family, but also the blue beach in the back?
Yes, now with the new 120° wide-angle lens, not just a family, but a couple of generation can be in it. Interested to know how? Its just a matter of days, we have this Mobistar coming with their front, dual selfie camera that captures a 120° wide-angle shot.
