Call for morning prayer was coming from a minaret of a nearby mosque. It was still early and dark. Change in time zone did its thing and full night sleep was impossible. Clock on the wall was ticking loud and way too slow… There were still few long hours before Tara or Gouri would wake up.
Finding someone in the city with population of over 2 million is not an easy task. There were almost a hundred photographs in my bag taken in the maze of this ancient desert city few years back. With Gouris help, at the end of the day there was a lonely photograph of an elderly man left whom we couldn’t find. Most people were surprised, some even remembered the picture of them being taken. Quite a few invited to sit for a chai, others to share a meal with them. Everyone was happy with their surprise picture, including Gouri and I.
