Was driving around my city (Jhansi) few days back on a bright spring afternoon and came across this master piece, could not stop then and there because it was busy lane full of lawyers (काछहरी एरिया), came back walking after parking my car. For couple of minutes I thought I was in the year 1992 when I used to just visit that lane to have a glance at this machine while my entire family was busy eating pani puri in sadar bazar (the only happening market in my city till date), the owner of the machine (photographer uncle) noticed me many time and after few of my unnecessary visits I was offered to get photographed by the artist, I came in front of the machine flat expression and got myself photographed. I also remember that I had no money that time to pay for my photograph. I held my head down and told the photographer '' Sir don't have money to pay, hope it's fine if I pay when I grow up'', he smilingly handed over my wet picture to me and said '' yes, you can when you grow up''. . .
Today I thought of paying him for the job he did long back but he was no more in this world. I asked his son that do they still photograph using this and to which he said this just the showpiece now and they shoot digital these days, he offered me 32 passport size picture in 20 minutes for only rs 50, which I smilingly declined and payed the earlier due amount to photographer's son and smilingly walked towards my car.
