Look at that hill and the sun behind it, radiating its glory and singing its pride. When you zoom out you see a roadside stall. People are busy in their usual routine. Washing, cooking, making tea.
At the centre, there is a nine-year-old kid sitting on a bench. His undershirt is pale due to dried sweat and his skin is suntanned. His hands are rough and wrinkled. The sweat drops on his hair tips are shining like diamonds of a king’s crown.
He has a cup of tea and a biscuit dipped in the cup.
A same age boy sitting next to him is looking at him with satisfied face while everyone else is still busy in their daily routine, washing, cooking and making tea.
Through STILLS writer would portray various phases and faces of life in the form of stills. Like a photographer. There would be no movement but each element would say its story. There would be no dialogues but emotions would be communicated.
So the concept is very simple. a photographer can capture a moment, but can a writer do the same?
