Back when I was in school, I had this fascination with collecting stamps, old coins, coins from around the globe; 'foreign' coins as I fondly called them.
I moved out of home in 2010 for college and then life happened. You grow out of things, develop new interests, have added responsibilities.
I returned home this time after almost 1.5years and my mum repeatedly asked me to clean out my cupboard. And then, I discovered these again. Nostalgia hit me.
I remember my thatha (grandpa) received posts from Madras and Bombay and he would immediately remove the stamps from them and hand it over to me.
