Lockdown Story 21

2020 has been one hell of a roller coaster.. Our world has been turned upside down thanks to our frenemy, The Virus.

Lockdown, they said. Shut everything down. Schools, colleges, malls, highways, offices. EVERYTHING. The people of Mumbai breathe a sigh of relief. Yes, a lockdown does have its own financial repercussions. But the people of Mumbai finally get their “ME” time.

Me, a Mumbaikar by birth, have been recently married, and now I stay in Pune. I missed the hustle and bustle of Mumbai and was relieved to be back home before the lockdown started. I was away from home for a couple of years and did feel grateful for this opportunity to live with my parents once again.

Both my parents are working and growing up; there was very little interaction with them. So it did feel nice to have them to myself for the entire day. Being away from home has given me perspective about a lot of things. I am no longer a whiny teenager; I am a grown, independent woman.

Being away has made me realize the value of my parents. Relax, this isn’t a sob story. I am not going to cry about how much I miss them. πŸ˜€ But thanks to this lockdown, I am able to spend quality time with them. We do all sorts of things to kill time. But the one thing I enjoy the most is playing Ludo with them. You heard me. LUDO. And you guessed it, both of them are sour losers. Can’t stand to lose. Especially my Dad. He is a big cry baby. And don’t even get me started about my Mom. She needs to play until the moment she wins. No jokes. Play till she wins.. πŸ˜€ it’s crazy how similar we are. We love the same food, the same genre of movies, almost the same songs

Spending time with them has made me realize that they too have grown. They are grown to be more patient, more understanding, more relaxed. I now notice the wrinkles near their eyes, the laugh line near their mouth, the baggy eyes, the white in their hair. But thankfully they both are aging well πŸ˜‰ hahahahaha

Jokes apart, the reason I wanted to share this with you all is that we too are losing time with them. In these uncertain times, we must cherish these days. Love them unconditionally like they have always loved us. Today it’s Covid-19, tomorrow it will be something else. In all of this, let love be your constant.

Pamper them, enjoy them, and spoil them. Make them that cup of tea which they enjoy or cook something nice for them. And it’s not only them, you could also do it for your neighbors or someone who you know is in need of some TLC..

Let us together build a strong community and fight this virus together. Above all, let us be kind to one another.

    Yea. Even we share similar story.
    Lockdown has definitely gave us me time with our family.
    More over Nature has removed it’s own time to revive and recover itself in order to provide us with better surroundings.

    It seems you are an amazing writer provided you not stepping out and sitting below tree in gardens to pen down poetries as poet do you know πŸ˜…

    Stay happy !!
    Stay Safe !!
