After fifty years attended temple festival in the village I was bornYesterday was a special day to me and I was nostalgically excited.
After a gap of about more than fifty years I could attend the opening day of the ten day festival in the village where I was born. It was doubly exciting because I could visit my classmate of four years from- class one to class four. I could also visit a few more child hood fronds, who were also family friends.
It was special because I took my wife, son and daughter-in-law also with me. It was a novel experience for them as it was for the first time they were witnessing the full procedures and temple rituals connected with the flag hoisting for the temple festival.
For me it was a chance after about more than fifty or fifty five years, because I had left the village when I was nine years old and afterwards though I visited a few times, I did not attend the temple festival.
It was a nostalgic visit and recall for me, but it was a new connection for my family as they got well with my friends' family.
Hope many of you may also have some such experiences to narrate.
