May Photo A Day : Day 5 : Paper

Some day in November 2011, around 7:30 in the evening. I was as usual wandering in Connaught Place with my sister. And then there were these 2 females shopping some knick-knacks. One of them looked familiar. I looked closely and it was famous filmmaker Mira Nair. I immediately went upto her and she came across as a really warm and soft-spoken person. I told her how much I loved Monsoon Wedding. And she asked me things about Delhi. 

When it came to taking her autograph, I did not have a notepad to take it in. I scrambled in my bag for some bit of paper for her to sign on. Ultimately, I took her autograph on a sheet of paper that had some office things written on one side. 

I folded the paper and kept it in my wallet. My only grudge was I missed taking a picture with her.
She autographed it as (if you cannot read it clearly in the picture):

‘Salaams dear Naina!
In solidarity.
Mira Nair’


  1. Wow!! That's a priceless memento. I have Amitabh Bachchan's autograph... met him at Chennai airport! :)
