I have special childhood memories of the few weeks spent in Amroha. A few examples are,going from the station to my Mohalla in a tanga; all the dukaans particularly the ‘pan waala’ and the ‘meethai waala’on the way;going to the aam bagh with my chacha and cousins;drinking’hot’tea and dunking papay into the tea (yum);pumping water in to a baalti for a wash!But I do know that now there is running water and electricity in my Mohalla. One of these I will revisit home.

Memories of Eid spent with my cousins are still fresh. Waking in the morning, washing with cold water, dressing in a brand new’jora’ and going to say adab to my dadi, phopi, chachi and family. The best was receiving the Eiddy money and going to the Mela to buy meethai, peacock feathers and clay dolls. The pathang that I was never able to fly but my younger brother got it over the roof tops!Ah what delightfull days!

I visited Amroha recently after many years.It has changed a lot during this time.Population has exploded. Sanitation is much worst. But people are still very fiendly. I look forward to go back there soon.
