“Oh it’s a beautiful day, it’s a beautiful dayyyy.”(song playing)
Bang, and the alarm goes off and the alarm clock as well.
Good morning it is, wait a minute.
“Is it” really “Good morning”; let’s do the reality check my friend
It’s Corona Times. We are living in the middle of a humanitarian crisis, it’s a universal threat to the mankind, it’s a pandemic and it’s spreading it’s wings as Akshay kumar did in “Robot 2.0”( Wait a minute God save us from Indian Versions of Avengers Endgame).
But What if the Corona keeps getting worse and worse and worse?
Hey, Hey, hey, let’s take a break, Is it that bad, let’s have a closer look.
On the sunny side up
Oh, the balconies – The showstoppers, the flag bearers, the main lead heroine not the item girls anymore. With the pace at which people are getting attached to their balconies. Don’t be surprised, if in future the real estate agents will be showing you flats by saying “Oh yes mademoiselle, this flat has half a bedroom and six balconies”
Don’t you think it worked out pretty well for the musicians, talking about these high profile balconies, how can we not talk about this balcony-house mind it not the ln-house but the balcony-house performances everyday at 5 pm. And the catch is no one can say no to you anymore. So all you hidden A.R. Rehman’s and MJ’s “it’s your time”
Oh, by the way, have you noticed these balcony conversations happening at the dusk and the dawn. Don’t you feel to be in the “Shakespearean era”? Everyone is Juliet and a Romeo in disguise. ”O speak to me no more, these words like daggers enter my ears” which essentially just means “Shut up”
On the positive side, man ! have you looked at the sky? Feels like we are sitting inside the Eurorail (of course inside, because can’t move out & don’t move out) and it’s the majestic European blue sky(wait a minute is it the title track of DDLJ playing in the background and hell yes I am Simran). I shall give you a million-dollar tip; take a screenshot of AQI meter of your cellphone. Trust me it will be vintage in future and definitely you the” millionaire”.
On the brighter side, the mother earth is detoxifying itself. For once, when you will take a deep breath, you will feel you are in the Himalayas and not in a Gas chamber. The humans are detoxifying, the animals are and the birds as well. By the way, I just overheard two birds talking. I am really sorry for the intrusion in their privacy but do I have a better option. So the blue bird was saying to the yellow bird “I swear on my unborn babies man, please for Christ sake, give me some smog”. See things are not that bad. Are they?
And now comes the highlight of the lockdown — The know- it all, show -it all “dad of all” is the new “Mop Queen” of the house. And if you all weren’t dead scared of getting disowned in the property inheritance scheme. I bet you all are craving to say “Ae Shanta bai theek se saaf karna”
And yes, Ohh How can I forget, even I am not the “Mean Queen” these days; but not for long – As “We shall overcome.
