Graduating  from St Xaviers College to my Masters in English from Calcutta University to my B.ed from Loreto College to teaching English, life has always been a frenzy with a pandora's box of emotions tucked away  in the closed chambers of my heart because entertaining them required some pause in the otherwise busy lives and that was an impossible task even if I were granted a boon of several extra hours during the day. . Came COVID and memories have tumbled out of trunks of  regret, happiness, pain and subsequent healing. To remember the past and recreate the reality that once existed with words is a privilege I have these days. This uncanny pause has its benefits too.
