Radhika's Diaries

Looking for a humor blog? You've come to the right place!

Myself Kamalamma from Kunjibettu, Karnataka.

What to tell you? So much tragic news in newspaper and TV about shortage of beds and oxygen and ventilators and so many people are dying, really … mind is too much sad. They are calling it 2nd wave … but this is like maha tsunami.

In the middle of this, today I am reading one article in newspaper and I am finding it little bit funny. It seems some people are making one experiment somewhere in France. Now you people will be thinking experiment is in laboratory, where people in white coats are mixing all kinds of liquid from one end of tube and smoke is coming out from another end maybe. But this experiment is different. It seems 15 volunteers are going into underground cave in France and living there for 40 days. Newspaper report is saying finally experiment is over and yesterday all of them are coming up. And what for they are doing like this? To study how people are adjusting to isolation it seems! Aiyyo tchah!

What is this? Why they are going underground to find out this? They can come and ask us directly, no? For past 1 ½ years up of ground, we people are doing same thing – lockdown, curfew, don’t go out, work from home, study from home, don’t meet friends. All this is picnic or what?

But it seems these underground people are living 40 days without mobile and TV and all! Ohoho … I am thinking for this at least they should get Bharat Ratna or some other award!

In our house we are not able to live even half an hour without mobile. Corona is outside and we are inside, full time seeing our mobile because otherwise, if we are seeing only each other’s faces, from morning immediately after waking up, Kamalamma and the Mister are fighting like India and Pakistan. After we are bored with our phone then we are switching TV on and watching our Arnab anna who is banging the table and shouting like football commentator. But except for Kamalamma, nobody is getting scared of his drama; same people on the discussion panel are coming again for next day’s debate also. Our people are like this only. They are not afraid of virus then what is this Arnab Goswami!

Virus or not, before authorities are banning it, thousands of people are crowding at temple festivals and Kumbh Mela and all! Tchah, tchah … why people are doing like this? What is the need to go out for such reasons? When we are sitting at home and doing online shopping, all items are coming direct to our house, like that if we are sitting at home and praying also God will come direct to our home no?

But what to do? Our people are not listening. They are going here, there, everywhere without mask, without washing hands and all, then how virus will not spread?

Abbabba … with all such things happening here up of the ground, I am thinking maybe it is better to go and sit underground like experiment volunteers, till the virus goes away. But million dollar question is, when it will go? I am having one doubt whether this is virus or one Ekta Kapoor story which is never getting over and every 4 months, characters are mutating and new characters are even more katharnaak. Maybe we will call this story Kyonki Korona bi kabhi virus tha. Now you people will say, Aiyyo Kamalamma, Corona spelling is C not K … okay maybe, but Ekta akka is keeping like that only because astrologer is saying letter K is lucky for her.

Anyway, I am praying every day for everyone’s safety and health and the Mister is saying that when Kamalamma is praying to our Udupi Lord Krishna then maybe it is good because both names are with letter K … But this only Ekta akka’s astrologer can confirm. Until then everybody please stay safe and wear mask whether you are underground or up of the ground.

    Loved how you linked it with Ekta kapoor serials with new characters and new mutation every few months. I wish we get to say soon kyunki corona bhi ek virus thaaa….Kamalamma rocks, wish the Krishna hear prayers soon and isolation not be the only normal.
