Nostalgia for our old place of livingMost of the times in life we do not get to stay in one city or town. We need to change places due to different factors like education, job, transfers etc. But wherever we go we build fond memories attached to that place which they cherish later. But it is a fact that if we are born, brought up and have done schooling in one particular city or town then memories of this place leave a very lasting imprint in our mind which is hard to erase. This often creates nostalgic and sweet memories in our mind sometimes when we are free or in a thoughtful mood. At this moment we get a deep urge to visit our old place and relive the memories. But due to the practicalities of life, this may not always be possible.
But we often tend to have a virtual tour of our place by getting lost in its memories for a while whenever we feel nostalgic. Scenes which come to our mind during such times are – our house where we used to live, those lanes where we used to wander and those small shops, our school and playground where we enjoyed with our friends, that marketplace nearby our house where we used to visit in the evenings with our friends and that snacks corner where we used to have our evening tea and snacks, those nearby places where we visited.
We also wonder how the place would have changed by now and get a strong feeling that one day we will visit our old place and live the memories in real time. So do you have memories associated with your old city or town and do you plan to visit them in the future to rekindle the memories?
