Barren Queen’s Necklace: Dreamers are missed
I go out once in few days to assess the situation on the ground. Which roads are.ooen, how strictly is the lockdown and curfew being enforced.
Walked to Walkeshwar and one can see couples sitting under the trees, people walking up and down the main road of Malabar Hill. As long as one is within their area, as police barricades are at every major junction and police ask for papers once it is dark.
By which time, one tends to forget all worries, as the lights begin to shimmer along the splendid Queen’s Necklace. I miss the crowded horizon of people who look to the horizon far into the sea, holding onto their dreams tightly….her neck is barren, almost naked!
Blue Skies and blue water, Mumbai has never seen such a sight!
“Blue skies, smilin’ at me, Nothin’ but blues skies do I see…Never saw the sun shinin’ so bright…” Frank Sinatra, Blue skies
Beautiful views of before and after: The Copper Pod trees that had only buds and later the yellow flowers shone, giving an irresistible lustre.
Second is the sunset and the colours after the sunset, more like a beautiful stale light
Living close to Girgaon Chowpatty, we have grown up going to the beach, nearly every day. After the lockdown was announced, I felt stifled, for not being able to see the Arabian Sea.
I never imagined what it is to feel caged, one of the reasons I do NOT like the concept of pets, is precisely that it is a feeling of being caged.
Small things we take for granted– food, our environs, sea, name it we were denied of enjoying it.
