winter memories

Gone are those childhood winter days. Ma would pester me for the shower I was not at all willing to take. But it’s true, after the warm shower which I took with reluctance I actually felt better. We’d bask in the sun after lunch in the balcony, the heat much mellowed down unlike that of the sultry summer in Calcutta. Ma peeled the orange & my eyes would sting from the water coming out from the orange peel. She used to say it is good for the eyes. I would play badminton with my neighbourhood pals in the dusty winter evening. Gone are those days....
