    This months theme is perfect for me as these stones that I have taken pictures of, literally represent the time I had the reflection of my life, in the most beautiful morning of my life when everything changed for me, more in the story below.

    This represents the sunshine that came along with the first encounter with these stones.

    My favourite of all stones, through the beloved macro mode.

    Story: A year ago, I was torn between 2 career choices for my life that I just couldn't figure out among other stresses and needed a break. That's when my family and I took a road trip to the Himalayas in September 2019 and one day when we couldn't reach our planned destination in time, we stopped at this random village late at night. As I woke up next morning, I saw the sight of one of the most beautiful river banks from my room and all plans to travel ahead that morning were cancelled as I sensed the river Calling out to me in it's sound. Some force convinced me that there was something in there for me that morning, and after spending 3 hours laying by the river, enjoying every bit of the cold air, warm sunshine, gushing sound and absorbing all the energy of nature around me, I woke up and stood up a different person.
    I don't know or believe what happened but all my doubts were answered, I had gotten my answers and I was ready to move on, and as hard as it was to leave that magical place for the further trip, I couldn't believe what It gave me and will always be grateful for the force that led me to that unknown unplanned destination. Before leaving, I picked up these stones from just beside the river bed, some big and some small, to fill my heart and remind me of that place, of that morning all my life.
    I now take the smaller stones with me to all the important events and after seeing this months theme, I took all of them to my monthly beach walk to get some nice pictures for the contest and exactly one year after that trip, I hope they continue to bring me more joy.

    I bought this little kid’s bike for my first son when he was 5 years old. After he outgrew it, the bike passed to my younger son. Now that they have both grown up, I still can’t bring myself to get rid of the bike. It parks at the corner of our backyard shed collecting dust but every time when I see it, it brings back memories of those days that we taught them how to ride this bike, the time they fell with tears on their frustrated faces, the smiles and confidence they wore when they realized I had loosened my grip on the handle bar and they had conquered their fear. Certain possessions are just hard to let go.

    I used to camp and hike with my boys a lot. However, the frequency of our trips gradually reduced once they started high school and even less when they went off to college. I still want to keep my hiking boots and camping equipment hoping they are one day able to find time to accompany us for some adventures.

Posting again since one of the photos in the earlier post violated the guidelines and I couldn't afford that.

    Title: Radio with its license

    This radio is one of the oldest and beloved item in our family. It was gifted by my grandfather to my grandmother on their marriage. It has become a heritage to our family. I remember, my grandfather used to tell me how the whole street would come to their house and listen to the cricket commentary. During 83 World Cup, this radio became a source of happiness to our family and the neighbours. My grandparents had many memories attached to it.

    Grandma's Love

    Grandmas are special people who work tirelessly to ensure her grandchildren growing safely and happy.

    This is her first gift to my son, a stroller which is still on a good condition, waiting for my third baby, who is arriving soon.

    This piano was her another important gift, when she came to know that my son has a taste of music. Infact, this piano become a part of his life with which he spend a few hours without anyone insisting.
