#MindSpeaks : Gooseberry Goosebumps

Posted on Updated on

unnamed_InPixio2What a nice thought and title that came out in mind today to keep my blogging activity alive!.

True. I open my heart and mind through different media and medium. One is my blogging activity, other is photography and third is my quest for music.

In all the three, I am just a basic student. There are experts and there are critics as well as fans. I do give them due regards.

Now, coming to today’s topic. True. I am getting goosebumps! A different kind, out of fear or anxiety or excitement. I do not know which one is right and correct!

Trying to be a vegetarian, it has been my routine to have rice porridge in the morning before I start to office. Along with it, some dhal and an added marinated mango or gooseberry or spicy pickle of either of them is my routine. It gives me enough strength to take me through my day and be back home.

Rice porridge is traditional and staple food of many Keralites. The porridge made out of boiled rice give lot of strength and stamina. Intake of gooseberry daily gives lot of strength and stamina.

Being able to travel several times to my home town, I replenish the stock of gooseberry pickle each time I return. That means, there is always an abundance of stock and I have the liberty to have two, three or 4 pieces daily.

But, when I looked at the bottle, I found only a few, may be less than 10!….

I realized, I was in a dream world!. I never realize ahead about a tough day that was ahead.

What do I do? I long for having more than one piece today? Only option was to place the gooseberry in a plate and look at its reflection and believe and convince myself, there is not one, but two for you!

Life at times is like that. We are thrown into some harsh realities suddenly without any anticipation or expectation.

The ongoing Covid 2019 situation is also like that. We will survive. We will fight it out.

#StaySafe  #StayAtHome – that is the mantra now. Follow the government rules and guidelines.

We will have opportunities to smile and think over these tough days.
