Time to Pretend

Hey guys,

Are you a fan of spider-man (the recent one) by any chance? Then you must have watched Spider-man Homecoming movie. There is a song in the trailer for Peter Parker introduction, you remember by any chance because it’s 3 years old movie.


It’s “Time to pretend” song. Remember!

I was bored and going through MCU movies and recalled this song. Well, back then the song was a loop in my playlist. I think the song suits pretty much during COVID-19 situation if you are lone and far from home.

P.S: If you are lone and far from home don’t watch this song. You might end up crying😜.


Forget about our mothers and our friends.
We were fated to pretend. I’ll miss the playgrounds and the animals and digging up worms.
I’ll miss the comfort of my mother and the weight of the world.
I’ll miss my sister, miss my father, miss my dog and my home.
But there is really nothing, nothing we can do,
Love must be forgotten. Life can always start up anew.

Summer Garden

Hi guys,

Stay home and stay safe. Due to COVID-19 nature is hoping for a fresh start after the industrial revolution (more than 100 years of exploitation, nature mother finally feeling its breath).

My mom is a single parent and she works in the public sector. She is quite fond of gardening. Because of her work and me, she didn’t focus on this area for many years. When I left home for higher studies in 2017, she regained the hope of gardening.

Now lone corridor turned into a green wave. I didn’t realise how beautiful these plants we’re until lockdown for a month. Maybe boredom opened my eyes to appreciate it😃.

From past few weeks daily routine turns to water plants. Thanks mom for growing these beautiful plants in little space🙏.

I got this plant in Bangalore and it’s now all grown up😄.

Summer is ON so hot sun. After lockdown in India, birds are showing up. I literally didn’t saw any sparrows near my house for 10 years. Now they are everywhere, feeling like a miracle. So I’m feeding them some grains and water.

Sliver line

As COVID-19 got the pandemic tag, the spread of the virus is faster than the Bolt. Every country is trying to suppress the virus at an earlier stage.

In this situation,  if covid a curse for human beings but it is turning boon for the environment.

Sliver line of covid on nature turns to a positive reduction in air pollution across Italy and china. Check this

Venice a city in Italy where water canals appear to be crystal clear in the absence of boat traffic in earlier March.

Wildlife is returning to the tourist-free city. Dolphins, swans, fishes and other animals are returning. Well, Italy has been quarantined since early march, this helped in the reduction of air pollution around Italy.

Every coin has two sides. I think Covid-19 is the best example now. It’s returning nature to its original structure by fining the lives of human.

A Caste of Women

This is a rough translation of a beautiful Marathi
conversation between a man and a woman.

He questioned her   “which caste do you belong to”?

She asked   back”As a woman or as a mother”?

“Ok,Ok, tell me about both”.

With full self confidence she started telling —-

“When a woman becomes mother, she is casteless”.

He was taken aback “How is it possible”?

Her answer was —

“When a mother cleans excreta of her child, she belongs to Shoodra jathi ,

As the child grows, she protects the child from external unwanted influences, she turns into a KshatrIya.

With the growth of the child her caste also changes.  She gives good values, good culture and behaviour, and becomes a Brahmin — and last but least

When the child gets good education and starts earning, the mother guides him about the value of money, savings and necessary expenditures —-

She follows Vaishya dharma,

So I hope you agree with my statement that a Stree  has no caste. She is casteless.”

Listening to this, the man was dumb struck. A bright light of respect splashed in his eyes and he felt proud for all women as mothers.
