Remembering the Past

A loving cousin brother, Nongmaithem Manihar Singh , maternal cousin decades not seen after his death I went to his house at Yairipok Bazar to attend his Asti Sanchay. That country market place miles away from my house in Imphal I have not gone since long. Long ago during my childhood when I went there many times it was a small market place busy only at dusk selling mainly agricultural produces. At the time of the death of my aunt, his mother more than two decades ago it was still small and traditional. My mother her sister died more than two decades earlier than her. After they died our relationship distanced long we have not seen one another, shall our descendants with time forget our relationship ? That day the setting of the rural landscape seen much changed than last seen decades ago, the market place far bigger modernised and crowded . I recollecting then it's old days, and my life long past there. 20.01.2021
