The ideal couple were at it again! It was a lovely evening at the fag end of summer in Ooty, and we were on our way to the Elkhill road, our destination that evening. The purpose of the visit was to let them have a panoramic view of the Ooty town, the race course etc. The lady was way ahead of us while her husband was chatting with us… mostly about their previous visit to Ooty. â€œRohan, come here, quickâ€. Rohan dashed towards that spot, camera in hand. â€œSeems Saro has spotted somethingâ€.
â€œWhat else? It must be the sunsetâ€, I told myself. Before Rohan could find an ideal spot to capture the sunset, we were there. Saro was getting impatient, â€œOh Rohan, focus on the sun aloneâ€”not those dull hills and birdsâ€.
â€œMade for each other!â€ I said to myself. Last time they had their difference of opinion but in four years they have become the birds of the same feather.
Last time when they visited us, they were on a sight-seeing spree and it seemed they carried a list of tourist spots with them. So, they were busy from morning till evening. Botanical garden in the morning and Doddabetta in the evening or Deer Park in the morning and Boat house in the evening [shâ€¦ their main agenda was shopping].
During our visit to the Boat house with them last time, we hired a four-seater for boating. Saro wanted to take a few snaps of her hubby in various poses but she took her time to click. Maybe she wants trees and other natural beauties as background for the photos. â€œOh Saro, donâ€™t click nowâ€¦only the trees will be prominentâ€¦ no trees pleaseâ€¦â€ said Rohan.
Saro who seemed to have some aesthetic sense in those days has now become a true copy of Rohan, especially when she wanted to â€œfocus on the sun aloneâ€. Wonderful metamorphosis indeed!
