I didnt want to spend time clicking pictures and carrying the camera around. Put it away except for a few videos. And spent some quality time with them. When i do picture editing in the night, i wake up late. So took absolutely no pictures today. End of the night, started feeling guilty about having nothing to send home. Did some tailoring in the night to make this video. The song used in the background has an incredible story. This artist observed the way the birds sit on the electric wires. He converted these patterns into music notes and went with the flow. And created this beautiful composition. It only seems apt using it for these kids who observe and appreciate so much. The song is called ‘Song of Birds’.
And i had to record the fact that Arjun loves broccoli.
Every time he says “Archana pinni”, my heart (that i didnt know i had) melts, just a little. In the credits, you can hear him say it. When akka/pedamma would discipline him, he would cry out “Archana pinni, Archana pinni”. Sometimes. And i melt, literally.
p.s: Of all the videos i have made, i played this video to myself the most number of times. (I also have raw footage of Arjun hitting Aarna with a toy car)
