If you see that halo above me its because I was the only one who went to church on new year’s day while others were sleeping off. Not that I am that holy holy type and I do give the Sunday services a skip at times.
When you are out of the church after the Christmas / New year service there are these little guys selling all sorts of assorted balloons
This small boy was frantically trying to keep up with the demands of the customers.
I found that most of them were rejecting this pair of birds as “one beak is missing”
I offered to pick it up and he was very apologetic and said “kum diya to chalega “ (Its OK if you pay me less)
You should have seen his smile when I offered him his full 10 rupees.
Back home, I was having my morning tea when his smile floated back, and I thought why not a photograph of the bird with the missing beak and my morning cuppa tea. After all its nice to see someone with a genuine smile early in the morning on the first day of 2010.
