Something missing

What do you notice in the above photograph?

Of course, this is a  beautiful swimming pool with lovely surroundings and one can notice great weather!

And what else you notice?

There is too much quietness!

Is this not worth the opportunity, when the whole world is drowned in noise?

Come on my friend, though I love quietness, still, I feel I am missing something.

Missing something is real!

What it could be?

No people around, no children playing in the pool and no activity.

Definitely, the energy is missing.

The action is missing.

I am missing those funny noises of kids, their funny faces, and the humour.

Yes, my friend, what is the use of a swimming pool without people, what is the use of a playground without children and what is the use of a palatial Hotel when it’s lacking patronage?

But what to do?

The corona pandemic is showing no signs of abatement.

Some said this too shall pass & yet are waiting indefinitely for it to pass.

We have stopped living in the present.

Now we started missing everything, which we took for granted earlier unaware!

But then we do have some brave souls left

What they do?

“There’s nothing I miss about anything in the whole wide world. The idea of missing something means you’re not living in the moment. Every moment is good for something”  Ricky Williams

Even if people are not around and you are lonely…remember that I am here to give you the company.


Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    True . Quietness is killing. Carona make the world too much quiet and only tears with maximum pain is heart breaking.

      Couldn’t agree more my friend.
      Looks like the entire Asia is in the grip of the pandemic.
      People are sick of lockdown and hence precautions are thrown at wind as soon as lockdown is lifted.
      May be they are thinking …they are able to breath forgetting that they are the superspreaders
