Caleidoscope – Nostalgic Article of the Month Contest



Rain clouds in the sky, I don’t know why

They make me blue, when I’m thinking of you

Maybe they want to cry, as I walk on by

Hiding my tears, in a world of good byes

Dheemtha dheemtha dhera na dhera

Dheemtha dhera na………na ne na

Remember the old Colonial Cousins song on Indian Rain? Do these rain clouds bring out the nostalgic memories in you too?

The monsoon rain does bring back the memories of blissful childhood, of an unfettered life with care-a-damn attitude. Getting drenched in the rain, running along the edges of the slushy paddy fields, eating hot pakoras sold on the roadside, making paper boats out of the school notes and many more…

We at Caleidoscope are eager to bring back the joy that we often get from such silly little things! And we would like you to join us in this endeavour…

Wondering how?

We are running a month long contest on ‘Nostalgiphilia’, featuring articles that bring out the nostalgic memories. So, if you can write a few lines and add a few photos to capture your memories, we have a prize for it –
