TWO FRIENDS, TELANG AND PHALKE: [[1]]

Telang:

Friend, I hear you dabble in photography. Where’s your camera?

Phalke:

The monkeys stole it from me.

Telang:

Have you traced them?

Phalke:

The investigation’s still on.

Telang:

Can I be of any assistance?

But in whichever age the picture comes to life, I must be given the credit for it.

What is photography?

Phalke:

The formation of an image on a flat surface by an optical device and a chemical method of sensitizing that surface to a light source so that the image can be captured permanently is photography.


Telang:

Like tombstones.

Telang:

Friend, these are my monkey friends. I’ve been talking to them about our friendship for many years.

But I wanted to give you a surprise before you all met.

This is my gift to you.


Telang takes a photograph of Phalke with the monkeys.
