in place of a picture

A picture paints a thousand words. A picture, better still a video tells aplenty about anything and everything. But a picture without accompanying story is devoid of expression and punch-line, there were little of moods, excitement, joy or sadness. When children asked, especially of our personal history, the microcosm of our life experience, there often was little time or space for pictures, only words, but words were what kept them listening attentively.

Even when given a picture of the time passed, they will still ask for the story. So go, - tell them in a thousand words.

It is the thousand words – that truly paint a picture.
