32nd day of Lockdown

My precious little sweetheart, 

Do you dream, my boy or do you have a sound sleep mostly? To get a deep good night’s sleep is very important. I believe that I have always slept like a baby until my mind is fretting over something when I get really weird dreams. While most people say that they generally forget what they see in their dreams, I am the rare species who remembers almost 90% of my dreams whenever I have one.

So, yesterday was one of those days when I had a dream and if it was the most beautiful of them all, something that we have been craving for so long now. I dreamt of waking up one early morn and seeing that Corona was gone and we have achieved victory over the disease. Everyone around is smiling and hugging each other, it feels like Diwali or Christmas or Eid, I can’t make out clearly as I can see people of all castes and cultures together. 

Those in the hospital are extremely elated to have got cured by the right medicines for #COVID19 and the rest are being given vaccines to fight it. The national and international boundaries have been opened for travel and everyone is ecstatic to rejoin their work. The Prime Minister of our country can’t hold his tears of joy as he addresses and congratulates the nation. We are so happy to travel back home and your dad is looking forward to playing with his toys once again. He has never yearned to go to his school this much, ever in his life. He is so ecstatic about meeting his friends and teachers. 

Our sincere obedience during the lockdown has indeed paid us a fortune and we are rid of the biggest pandemic of our lives. It’s a beautiful day, I see people clad in beautiful clothes, all looking vibrant and extremely jubilant. How I had missed these smiles, this laughter. Life is beautiful once again. 

In some time, we reach our home and I head to my favorite coffee shop with my MacBook, my old adda to peacefully right for hours but what do I see? I see I don’t take my car instead walk to the coffee shops as saving Mother Nature from pollution is my pure intent now which has sunk in deep during the lockdown days. Once I am back I am tending to my garden and home growing our produce in our tiny kitchen garden and this is the same with everyone around. We have learned to value things. We now take life as a precious gift and life, in turn, is blessing us in its full vigor. We have learned to co-exist with nature and other species with peace and warmth for each other. Indeed the lockdown days in self-introspection have brought out the best in us which was always there but got buried under the materialistic desires. 

We have now learned to spend priceless quality time whet our family and are aware of our goals. I also see myself attending the ceremony where the scientist who gave us the medicine for Coronavirus is being awarded the noble prize. This scientist is apparently from Israel. 

Within moments of being there I get up, such a heart-warming dream it was, I tell myself as I smile and feel so light and good though the very next moment comes the realization that it was just a dream probably inspired by the announcement yesterday which stated Israel has found the cure of this contagious disease😊. I can’t tell you how I wished that this dream of mine comes true at the earliest and we get a victory over this disease. 

Probably my sincere urge to believe that only positive things will happen weaved this dream for me and gave me so much joy. Who knows this might be a premonition to something that is really going to happen. Maybe life is just waiting for us smiling at the next corner, soon the lockdown will end and we will tread the path and go and embrace it.

The lesson learned my child is, always be happy come what may, your brain will process your mental happiness and confer you eternal bliss no matter how difficult the situations are.

Stay happy and blessed forever my child 
Your granny
