One Frame Stories (OFS) looks at exploring the different perspectives that each one of us have of our not so different lives. We all come across the very same things in our daily lives, yet interpret it differently, gathering awesome insights which leave us inspired for another day. We look forward to your stories to help inspire a few more.
"Nice shot there Sid! This will make a perfect cover shot for the campaign in print-media." "Thank you boss! Right to education is critical today. Charity begins at home, right?" The promotion was a massive success. Educating the next generation was going to bring in a massive paradigm shift, but that would take time. If change had to come in today, it was imperative to educate the older folks too; those that resist change today. I watched as my daughter accompanied her grandpa to school. He enjoyed her company and she, his. They would surely enjoy education this way.
Rohan: Why do we have to do this? Why can't I be a farmer like you? Murali: Son, because I want to give you what I never got and I hope you find what you love to do there. Rohan: But I just love playing with you. Murali: Now don't complain for all the good things in life! Rohan: I don't wanna leave your hand. I'm scared. Murali: That's why I want you to go. When you come back and I'm 50, hold my hand; I would be scared then.
I am a ten year old girl. I get nightmares. A lot. All blood red in colour. I scream in my sleep. My parents also screamed and fought till the last breath when the caste mob attacked and threw their mutilated bodies on the railway track. Somehow I survived. You might have read about the honour killing of a married inter-caste couple. That’s my papa and mummy. Listen, I go to school crossing the same blood-stained railway track every day. It lies so close, but parallel to my life. This is my story. And I wrote it for the class assignment ‘happy family’.
The excruciating pain of the long labour vanished the moment Shubhdra took her newborn daughter in her arms. Her eyes gleamed with dreams of her daughter achieving all that she couldn't. She knew she didn't have much time. She kissed Aasha, held Murali's hand and smiled. "I'd promised I'll never leave you alone. I've kept my promise. Now... ," she couldn't complete her sentence but Murali knew what she wanted to say. Every day when Murali takes Aasha to school holding her hand, he keeps his promise. Shubhdra never left him. She always walks ahead like a guiding light.
