He was the Black Mamba. Feared and respected secret agent.

But not here at this reunion.

Here he was once again the little school boy watching butterflies out of his classroom, mesmerized by their beauty.

Here he was the dreamer, the poet.

At long last, he was Bipin once again.

  1. That’s beautiful! I’m discovering ways to think like that! All I cold imagine was writing about the butterfly 😛

  2. Loved that contrast Black Mamba to Bipin. No matter how successful we become it’s always a pleasure to revisit your childhood. Nice.

  3. Wonderful take on the prompt Gauri 🙂 Stepping out of the hectic life and rejoicing moments is at times all you need! 🙂
