Sunil - A shot in the dark . . . IMG_4718-modPM

Sunil and I played together as refugee kids in the streets of Lajpat Nagar in post-partition New Delhi and then went to school together before he joined the army to eventually command a brigade and myself to the corporate world. Many decades later we met again in Mumbai and recalling those far off days, over half a century ago was like magic. Last month, at a party at my house. I shot a few pictures of him, in very poor light as he talked to another childhood friend of ours . . . I wish the party lighting was not all that dim but I still like this shot . . . although try as I might, I can't find that carefree boy of the late 1950's in Lajpat Nagar . . .
