That old white curtain that shielded us from the world reflects only the stories of a place that exists in memory. No longer does it hang on the broken door in that room where we rested in the afternoon and dreamed about places beyond where snow fell on the trees and coloured landscapes white. Those afternoons became filtered light, a diffused state of being with the gossamer delicacy of those white curtains against the world.I can even smell the season from memory – burnt wood and weak sun. September and October. I dreamed of blue mountains and white snow on trees. Do you remember what they say about the sins of forgetting? They say sea will deceive you with mirages like the desert. White and unyielding and treacherous in its beauty. Those were the stories told in those rooms so we would never forget where we came from. They said don’t commit the sins of omission of memory. Or of dreams. How do you preserve the memory of home? By reconstructing the sights of childhood in red and white like a child would sort out a jigsaw puzzle. In absentia, memory asserts itself in such interjections. – from Rahul Mishra, words by Chinki Sinha
