You talk too much

(Note:- Please click on pictures to view an enlarged and more authentic version.)

IMG_3739_M“Hello, how are you doing?” I greeted my daughter as I entered home.

“No,” she replied.

“When did a NO become an answer to a HELLO?” I asked.

“I mean I do not want to see your pictures,” she clarified with a chuckle.

“I did not even ask you.”

“But you were going to ask,” she said giggling.

“How do you know that?”

“Remember I am your daughter and today is your photography class.”

“It is almost end of photography classes,” I replied.

“Are you not going to classes anymore?” My wife asked.

“The course was only for eight weeks,” I reminded her.

“That is bad. You should take some more classes,” my daughter interjected.


“Mom says it is peaceful at home when you gone. You talk too much,” she laughed.

On that ‘wonderful’ note, I left for my photography class.

At the end of the class, our eloquent teacher sought feedback including desired photo related courses and contents. While most expressed interest in portraits, sports and nature photography, my friend Pravin, had a unique request.

IMG_3848_M“Can I request something not to be included in the course?” Pravin asked teacher while smiling at me.

“Not to be included. What is that?” Some of us were obviously amused.

“Him,” Pravin said laughingly pointing his hand towards me.

“Oh. Why?” I could not resist.

“You talk too much,” Pravin alleged while continuing his laugh.

With friend like these, I do not need…..

(Readers: - Help me fill in the blanks.)

(Pictures: - Picture 1 is of  a student who volunteered to be model and Picture 2 is my friend Pravin, an expert (literal meaning of Pravin is Expert) in photography.)

Ha ha.... Good Lord! You talk that much! He he.....
Time to find a quiet spot in a park and meditate! :D

Tanvi said...

Haha! Well if your daughter and your friend 'BOTH' think so then it might be true ... but then what can you do right? We are what we are! Why fight it ... Talk away, Amrit ji, talk away! We are 'here' to 'hear' you!

Punam said...

Is it? :)
I was always complained of talking too less. :)

With friends like these, you do not need to worry about backbiting. :) Friends like these are honest straightforward people.

Insignia said...

Do you? It seems so :-P said...

kiran sawhney said...

That was very cute. So end of photography classes.
Share with us what you have learnt.

Alka Gurha said...

Thats so sweet....please continue your passion for photography though.

Unknown said...

Haaa haa... :) :) Empathies because I get exactly the same compliment and I take it as a compliment and never shut up :) :P :P

Rama Ananth said...

I think you should listen to your daughter, and continue some advanced course in photography, take up animal photography where you have to be very quiet, and soon people will beg you to talk with them.
Nice enjoyable blog.

shuchita said...

I like talkative people they are not boring and ya do share with us your learnings

Bikram said...

A New Beginning said...

Nisha said...

You talk too much but occasionally. I can see your photography skills gone up. People want to model for your camera ? Look at the smile on those faces. :D


Shobha said...

Even Talking is an art..God's gift...
It comes naturally to some people.
So keep talking..we are listening !

NRIGirl said...

Really? I can't believe because how come then you don't blog too much?!

Great pictures by the way, especially pic 1.

chitra said...

But haven't come across you as blogger who talks too much. Your blog is crisp and to the point.:)

May be your family should read this.

Share some tips on photography with us also.

Rachna said...

that's real funny. I talk a lot too though it has come down a bit :). I even did a post on that recently.

Tanishka said...

LOL.... Your daughter as always is super cute... :) And thanks to her and Pravin, coz it was only coz of them that we came to know who talks a lot... :D

Always Happy said...

hehehe..YOU TALK A LOT????

With friends like Pravin, you dont need ENEMIES??
(i know, iknow that is a silly answer but I wanted to fill in the blank rather than leave it bank).

Dont worry about being tagged TAKATIVE. I am sure they love you for that very attribute.

Always Happy

raji said...

LOL..really ?blanks can be.."with friends like these ,i donot need any other well wishers or criticizers..:)"

Timeless Memories - My Bygone ! said...

Hmmmm my goodness, oh dont worry abt that tag,ppl do njoy it in sme way... my family considers me to b loud, talkativ n wild, bt whn i'm not at home, papa will call me n say it such a horrible silence...

Deepika Vasudeva said...

talking too much is sane enough :)
atleast one won't keep things inside..

and for the fill up... u don't need to read jokes to lighten up moods :)
pravin must be good friend..:)

Usha said...

A, that was nice short read on "talk-too-much-habit". Do you really talk too much? True friends always talk open and it was good friendly gesture from Pravin to express in the class. Both the pictures are nicely clicked and capture pure natural mood. Looking forward to view new clicks explaining brief tips.

Anonymous said...

LOL!! I love the sweet straight forward approach of your daughter :)
But as far being talkative,count me in ;)
Photography classes are something, I too wish to enroll in someday :)

Destination Infinity said...

I can be both at times - very quiet and very talkative. It depends on the opposite person actually. But we generally don't realize when we are talking too much - good to have people around who point it out :)

"So no one told you life was going to be this way,
It's like you're always stuck in second gear,
Well, it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year.

But, I'll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour.
I'll be there for you, like I've been there before.
I'll be there for you, cause you're there for me toooooooooooooo :D:D:P...........:)

Mann_se said...

Filled the comment box but forgot 2 fill the blank :P:D-

"With friends like these ,I do not need to be "JUST" included/restricted in the "REEL" life but mostly in the "REAL" life " :D

Because "FRIENDS make our life so colourful that no photography can ever capture it " :P:D

Mann se.........
