Episode 28: Forgetting and Remembering
A precious moment may only last a second but its memory lasts forever. As we grow up, the most missed are the memories from our primitive years or of our loved ones. The more you revisit them, fresher and sharper they seem. From the sheer joy of jumping in a puddle during rains and licking mango peels in summers to making mud castles during Diwali and playing cricket in the hot sun, we all have somewhere lost the charm of experiencing the simplest of the joys. The current situation has blessed us with the time to finally sit down and visit Memory Lane. So let's tune in for one last time as Sudha takes a trip down the memory lane!
