I cannot draw a smiley face without making corrections “No mama I don’t like to put my name It spoils the look of the painting” I have so much to learn from these kids it frightens me Anyway I decide to make copies of the painting — sweet smiling brown and teal totem-like deities with a few worshipping cave-men below (it’s a copy of a famous painting Jagannath the artist informs me) — that I will hand out as cheap and cheerful Christmas gifts Henry the man who supervises my daughter’s beautiful artwork has asked me to pick up his ‘Boy’ who will guide me to the best Xerox shop in town Henry’s Boy turns out to be a strapping young man and we are soon headed to the shop in a small gully packed tight with provision stores and tyre repair shops As we near it we pass two blind men singing for alms The song has the gravitas of a beautiful hymn and it brings tears to my eyes As I struggle to park — I’m racing against the clock; there are three meetings lined up at work and I’ve got less than an hour to get there — I promise myself that I’ll run in throw the painting at the Xerox guys and then run out again and give the blind men something I double-check to see where they are and they are still a reassuring couple of meters away I’m relieved that the shop looks professional enough We enter a small waiting room and I come face to face with the biggest fish tank I’ve ever seen It fills up the room taking up the entire wall that faces the entrance door and its inhabitants gambol and frisk the length of the tank some bobbing to the top to check for possible remnants of fish feed (sorry there is none) others twisting and turning with an abandon more suited to the ocean I like fish and we even had our very own Goldy in a fishbowl a few years ago but some of these guys are the size of my forearm and their broad flat noses give them a distinct Hammer-head shark type appearance while their black beady eyes eye me rather hungrily Two distinctly smaller gold fish swim close to the bottom in a listless manner their hearts just not in it Henry’s Boy and I look around for the person in charge and we settle on a harassed young man running between two rooms that lead off from the waiting room He’s currently in the room on the right with the big machines and we enter and try to catch his attention “Colour ah” he jerks his head at us Yes we say and I fish out the painting from a makeshift newspaper bag created by stapling together two big sheets of newspaper It’s a tad too well constructed though and refuses to relinquish its contents without a struggle and Xerox Man loses patience and rushes off to a fourth room that’s packed with even more machines and more customers We wait And wait And wait I ask him a question or two every time he passes by but he ignores me Henry’s Boy is more worldly wise and holds his tongue A burly young man who looks like he belongs to the neighbourhood goon gang barges in and asks when his banner will be ready We all look over at it as it slowly emerges from the machine right next to us; it’s an obituary of a middle-aged man with blood-shot eyes standing out against a striking purple background laced with a border of red roses GS Kumaraswamy was born in March of 1976 (he’s younger than me) and died on…today “He died…now” I ask rather pointlessly but I feel the need to say something; the man just stares at me His phone rings and he answers: “Two Ok I’ll get two” Xerox Man and Xerox Boy dutifully nod and say yes no problem five minutes and then go back to doing what ever they were doing before The man blinks for a minute and then steps out I suddenly remember that I wanted to give something to the blind men and I rush out They are nowhere to be seen Instead a little old lady with a wobbly head slowly totters up the road; her right palm holds two one rupee coins and I don’t think twice: I whip out the money I’d meant to give the blind men and deposit it into her hand I am rewarded with a lovely little old-lady smile I rush back in happy to have done my good deed for the day Nothing’s changed inside Xerox Man is now mumbling something to Xerox Boy about scanning my painting The painting is inserted and the scan begins; all is fine for a few moments and then the machine stops: something’s jammed Xerox man races across leans over and switches the machine off and then in almost exactly one second switches it back on again He instantly goes up in my esteem as I swear by this tried-and-tested technique myself The machine’s re-installing itself and so there’s nothing to be done but wait some more I look around at my fellow customers Obituary Man is back and at last his banners are rolled up and handed over In the room across us a young girl discusses her requirements for the very professional architectural drawings she’s having printed — she looks old enough to be in the eight standard — and a mother sits patiently in a chair as her soon-to-be-married daughter leans forward and explains to a yawning computer operator just how she wants her wedding card to be designed A middle-aged man has not moved from his position on the beat-up sofa since we’ve come in; a sense of stoic calm pervades the room Everyone’s being served; none are being attended to I think back on a visit to a watch shop in Rome a few years ago I’d bought the watch on our first day there and it had stopped working on the second There was nothing to be done but go back and sort it out I’d arrived to find a single individual manning the store; he was behind the cash counter explaining the dos and don’ts of a watch in the chatty manner that sales people have when they’ve just closed a sale to a lady There was only one other customer between us This shouldn’t take long I waved my friends away; I’ll join you guys in a mo I should have realised I was in trouble when the salesman pulled out the instructions manual and began to pore over it like a love letter This was followed by a detailed discussion of the merits of the various wrapping paper on offer — the watch was a gift — and I took a deep breath and told myself to calm down This was Rome I was on holiday; life was wonderful I turned my attention to the lady in front of me: she was holding a big handbag and looked like she was on her way home after finishing a long day’s work; but since she wasn’t doing anything interesting I went back to glaring at the salesman and the customer Then at last over a dozen farewells and handshakes and probable vows of brotherhood — they’d spend almost half an hour by now — the lady in front of me moved up and I held my breath Please God let it not be more of the same “Grazie grazie” she nodded her head smiled and then turned and walked away Less than a minute And she’d waited half an hour for that Stupid Or plain senile I couldn’t tell With us you’re a buddhu if you can’t beat the system After all in our India we all are first in line Xerox man returns and I choose a matte paper and he pushes off to the waiting room to try and align the scanned picture to the length of the roll We follow It’s at this point that I come face to face with Little Old Lady whom I had met outside; she’s now brandishing an Aadhar Card in her left hand as she totters inside and instructs Xerox Boy to make two copies; the two Rs 1 coins still safely ensconced in her hand ready to be doled out once the job is done; my money is nowhere to be seen But there’s no time to ponder this new development as Xerox Man has suddenly sprung into action and crops cuts and chops the image to fit the roll — the deities’ heads are however no longer visible “Will cost more if I do big size” he explains; apparently he’s only trying to save my money I tell him it’s ok masterpieces can’t be fiddled with And now things thaw a bit I joke about how I’ve never seen such big fish He smiles sheepishly And with that finally I am done I give the fish tank one last look The big guys are still doing pultis all over the tank but the poor gold fish have sunk right to the bottom much like some of the customers hanging around the shop At last with five minutes to spare for my meeting I charge out of the shop and into the car clutching onto three very polished and smart versions of the painting They lack the grubbiness of the original and of course they have none of the crayon marks the scribbles the blotches that the artists’ small hands have left at the back of the painting But they will do For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related News| Published: May 4 2016 12:15 am Kim Kardashian wore a custom silver mirrored Balmain gown;

Tobar Domhan) is this year’s theme chosen by the churches in Brazil for The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (18-25 January) It’s accompanied by the text: “Jesus said to her: ‘Give me a drink’” (John 4:7) This week marks a special time each year to reflect on our own attitude to ecumenism and to engage with other churches according to Brian O’Leary SJ delegate for ecumenism in the Irish Province He notes also that Pope Francis has so come to dominate our conversation that it is difficult to begin commenting on any issue without reference to him and the area of ecumenism is no exception ”Francis” he says “is attempting to breathe new energy into the ecumenical project urging us not to be content with the status quo His reaching out to the Orthodox to Anglicans to Lutherans and to the Reformed Churches continues the example of his predecessors” But surprising and potentially ground-breaking according to Brian has been the Pope’s friendship with Evangelicals “In Latin America from which he came Evangelicals are perceived as Catholicism’s great rivals proselytising and winning converts with remarkable success But instead of running scared or hitting back Francis befriends them calling them his brothers and sisters asking them to pray for him” Brian also notes that in this context the Pope has referred to the divisions within Christianity not as the result of human sinfulness or prejudice but as signs of the different ways in which the Spirit is present and active among believers “How liberating a perspective It leads him to stress how we can all enrich one another so long as we don’t keep other Christians at a distance but rather invite them closer to us” These insights from Brian O’Leary are important particularly in the light of the challenge to ecumenism in the country from which this year’s reflections emanate In the introduction to the prayer booklet for the week available on ‘Churches Together in Britain and Ireland’ it is pointed out that a traditionally tolerant country like Brazil is now going through a time of real intolerance resulting in violence against minorities and vulnerable people such as women the gay community black and indigenous people This is due in no small part it says to competition for adherents by some Christian groups who are not part of the traditional Christian confessions As the latter are experiencing a drop in numbers and the competition has reinforced the idea that a strong and dynamic church should have a large membership some traditional churches are distancing themselves from the search for visible Christian unity The path toward Christian unity has always been a challenging one and regularly new challenges appear as others fade or are conquered But as Brian O’Leary points out this is now an opportune time to commit in personal reflection and communal prayer to making Jesus prayer ‘that we all may be one’ a reality by another man, we must not bury previously unearthed
