Change of scene

PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

                       Riding through the narrow  lanes on her cycle, collecting the freshly baked bread, eagerly waiting for the scrumptious channa* that accompanied the bread, and her favourite program on the television marked the beginning of her family’s Sunday mornings. This simple ritual was never traded for nothing for a long time.

                        The warm greetings of the baker making way for finely dressed servers, brightly lit room, well polished flooring, the traditional bread replaced by ones with fancy names. An array of pastries neatly racked glistened behind the glass cases. Standing rooted to the spot, childhood memories making way for the future called modernization.

*channa :- Chickpeas. A variety of Indian dishes are prepared using this wonderful pulse.

  1. A very touching story and such a reality , the huge transition . True, sophistication cannot replace or outweigh feelings or those precious memories.

  2. I like chickpeas and I liked your story. I also like think about places I used to go to when I was younger that are no longer there which your story made me think of. Nice job with the prompt!
