In the fading city bustle;
Dusk deepens towards dark;
The heart shaped leaves rustle,
Crore crickets chirping;
Turning leaves into megaphones;
In yellow summer evening,
Standing middle of the road;
The old Peepal Tree fixed in time;
Sings its sacred fables,
I listen transfixed.

In my city, the seven’o clock curfew has been in effect since two days after a sudden surge in the number of patients, I forgot all about the curfew this evening as I was walking past this old Peepal tree, I sat beside it for sometime, listening. I clicked a photo from my mobile and on the screen I noticed it was quarter to 7, I headed towards home at a run to beat the curfew, all the while I could hear police sirens and curfew announcements on megaphones. I hope all this will come to an end soon and things will change for the better.
