I had always wanted to clean up this old pic of ma. This is before she got married to dad. She is 16 (i think) in this pic. This is a very special photo of her. Apart from the fact that it was one hell of a thing back then to have a b/w photo with a colored something in it (namely, her bindi [ie: a decorative enhancement for the forehead - a prominent thing in Hinduism] ), ma says this is one of the very few photos that bring back good memories. Given my clumsiness, she absolutely wouldnt part with the tattered photo. Glad I managed to scan it. The clumsiness however, has crept in with the repair-job.
