The Friendly Paati

Most regulars to North Mada Street in Mylapore are familiar with this friendly old lady who sits on the steps to her house watching the world go by without a complaint. During the Mylapore festival, she readily agreed to guide the posse of photographers to the terrace through the labyrinthian approach. On the second day, when I wanted to go to the terrace, she asked me whether I know the way.

I am happy that my friend and fellow photowalker, and President PSM, Shri  Balasubramanian G. Velu presented her a print of her picture taken a day earlier. Though I was not present at the moment I can very well imagine the broad smile on her face.
