The most memorable childhood moon tale was then from encyclopaedia. I considered moon as a shining star. I used to watch it at night from window and draw it on the book's end. 1 face, each day, this made my first flipbook on moon.#ChildhoodMemories #Chandrayaan2 #isro— Masoom 🇮🇳🚀🛰️🌐 (@MasoomJethwa) August 1, 2019
The old lady in the moon with her handloom weaving threads was the common folklore in the Bengali families. My grandmother use to tell this vividly as a bed time story while I gaxed the moon from our bedroom window.Truly nostalgic!— Mayuk Dasgupta (@Mayukdg) August 1, 2019
