My friend Udai, back in Konkan Maharashtran town is a light blue kiosk owner that stands alone in front of his family home and a minute away from the beach.

He's a collector in heart and has some unique types he came up with... for example: 10 Rupee bills with a serial number that matches birthdays of famous people.

When I was about to leave for south India, 8 months ago, he asked me to bring back some matchboxes for his other collection.

Myself having a background in picking those up from the ground, I had no problem to change the 'addresee'.

So upon returning here, a month ago, I presented him with many species he had never seen. Worth seeing the smile on his face while checking them out in depth
