Day-61, Lockdown

Day-61, Lockdown

‘What do I write?’ I asked my mom, ‘I have absolutely nothing to write!’ 

‘Calm down! It will come to you all by its self.’ She said in her matter of fact way. And, you know what? It did come to me. Just look at this blog as a Mother’s Day blog, written a bit too late.

How do mothers know literally everything about their children? When I ask my mom this question, though indirectly all she says is, ‘I gave birth to you, my dear…’ of course I know that, but that does not answer my question by a long shot.

We have the most peculiar arguments on the most peculiar things, and she always wins in the most peculiar way. You know how she wins? She wins by ordering me to stop back answering. Honestly, I still don’t know what back answering is. I have googled it a number of times though, never came up with a proper answer. 

My mom is sitting besides me, as I write today’s blog. She says, she has told me what back answering means, but I still don’t know what it means, what a mystery!

When she is scolding me, I just sit back and listen I don’t say anything, guess what she tells me then. She tells me to present her with an argument, to make it a kind of mutual discussion so I answer to what she has asked, ‘stop answering back!’ Is her only reply.

She’s sitting besides me, you know laughing aloud saying sarcastically ‘be truthful to your readers, dear.’ But, this is the absolute truth. Truth hurts, mom. (She is still laughing, by the way.)

After all of our arguments, we always make up. Because, well at present we have nowhere to go. Just kidding, my mom loves me and so do I.

      No language can express the power, beauty & heroism of a mother’s love. A Mother is someone who understands what a child does not say. Of all the gifts that life has to offer, a loving Mother is the greatest of them all. The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which one will always find forgiveness. A Mother is one who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take. God Bless & keep writing.

      Hi keya, nice to read your support system during difficult times. Appreciate you and your team. Now coming to the subject, COVID-19 lock down is a unique experience in the life of every individual, family, society and the whole world. We are all learning every day. This is a school where everyone is in same standard.
      I have a suggestion that you write a summary expression of lock down period. As first your can write own experience, then that of your family, your society. This will be a treat to read and understand this unusual period from the perspective of an innocent child. I hope you will, if not here then separately. Love you beta.
