Thursday Challenge : “MANY” (People, Crowds, Lots of anything,…)
Sorry I am one day late..

Mode of Currency

Mode of Currency

The above picture is of currency used many many years ago in our nation, I found these coins from a very very old trunk that belonged to my GREAT-GREAT Grandmother.. so that is 5th Generation old.. Me – My mother- My Grand Father – His Father – And Great Grand Fathers Mother.. That is a LOT of years tooo .. There were so many coins I have pics of them maybe I should take them to a Auction house and who knows I might be sitting on Millions 🙂

The Next Two pics are of mine as you can see .. but my question is .. Can you guess why I have put them in this post .. Many of ____________ ? 🙂

  41. Bikram,

    It does no harm to dream of having hit the treasure chest. And you might have just about done that by unearthing those old coins. But would they yield millions for you? As I said, no harm in dreaming…..

    I continue to be intrigued by your question about why you put up those posters. Why does anyone put up posters? When he or she finds something which is a visual delight. So , as you think back to your younger days and the reason you put up those posters, what thoughts come up for you?

    Cheers

    Shakti
