Marziya gets upset when I make her pictures BW .. she loves colorful ..and I dont blame her we all want color in our lives .. that is why on streets in Mumbai during most feast days it is color sprinkled in the air that rejuvenates the surroundings and the festive moment.
Marziya is now in the first standard , very perceptive and the eldest among my other two grand daughters Nerjis and Zinnia Fatima.
But Nerjis is very smart today she visited my dear friend Dr Sanjeev Mani and he gave her a box of Swiss chocolates , she bought it home handed it to my wife and shared it with the others.
Nerjis talks in complete sentences and with a fluidity of thought sensible thread of a conversation that amazes me ,,she listens to reason but she gives back if pushed ,, and she is crazy about the Kama the ritual where males cut their heads in the memory of Imam Hussain.. she wants to do the kama and I tell her she is a girl and does not have to do it ,,, mind you she is just 2 year old.
The third grand child is very beautiful and on the sturdier side hence carrying her is very tough for me ,, Zinnia Fatima loves the camera ,,, and I have kept it away from her completely ,,
Marziyas best friend is Mehreen both are students of the same school and have been together since the play school days.
But the way I shot Marziya ,, I dont shoot my other grand daughters ,,
