There are many instances in life wherein I have really longed to go back to the past. I am longing for the time when I was 4 years old may be 5 not more than that , that is the time where I would like to go back to . I do not want to live in the past for days together; there are some particular days and tastes which are etched in my memory forever. I remember relishing the crunchy , fruity rose apple with its distinct flavor, which I remember even now as if I am eating one right now, so is the nutty flavor of the wild jack, it’s fruit , so different and so tasty and it’s nuts which acquires a totally different taste when you eat them roasted.
The green paddy fields stretching out far towards the railway line, wherein at night the train zoomed past with lights and noise, it used to be the only sighting of light at night which we had apart from the light from the lanterns that we used at our home, then there was the twinkling light of the glow worms which looked like happy stars on the earth at night.
Yeah ! I know for sure that this is the effect of ‘The time travelers wife’ which I just finished reading. How I wish I could woosh in and out of my past, the beautiful , dewy , innocent childhood and just take sneak peeks at the future, sigh !!
P.S: The book has left me with a heavy heart and for some time I am going to be stuck with Clare in her waiting and longing….
