Hearing an old Kannada song I grew up with when surfing channels on the radio.
Getting little toffees wrapped in crispy green covers instead of change, that I longed for as a kid.
Discovering a tiny place that serves the best parathas for less than 20 rupees
Discovering that the yummiest kaara kulazhambu is bottled and sold
Discovering that me and V have done similar things as kids at around the same time when we didn't know the other existed
Bumping into the video of the animated song "ek titali anek titaliyaan" that was the high point of DD viewing long ago
Finding out that an old friend has gotten over her heartbreaks and found the happily ever after
Discovery of a perfect little sequence to add in the film to make all the difference
A subtle gesture that says your little brother looks up to you
The absolutely wonderful line that pops in to end the article brilliantly
Catching a smile on a child's face, playing in a park by herself
Glimpse of the innocence with which children trust you and hang on to your every word
The memories of hot bajjis, amma and my little brother on a rainy evening
Oh the list is endless...And it is in moments like these that the world seems utterly beautiful and an immense love for every person washes over.
