#fridayfotofcition: #week 11
Grandpa gifted the typewriter to her on her 40th.
He was an acclaimed author of 11 books. On plants and diseases, on the Green Revolution that had taken the country by storm in the early 60s. He had stayed awake many moons, painstakingly typing all the research and work. The typewriter had been his true companion. A gift from the Viceroy of Bengal and a real piece of treasure.
She stood haggling at the door with the Kabadi wall. “Saath Rupaye, memsahib”. Exasperated beyond words, she handed it over to him. The typewriter now lies stashed among the recyclable scraps by the roadside.
