“Pichle saat dino mein maine kya kya paya”
Those Seven days of #ChennaiRains had a real impact on me..this part will talk how we take things around us for granted..and realize their presence only when they are absent..
and .when your life revolves around the luxuries of life..you don’t realize how much your are dependent on them ..until..they start leaving your life one by one..same happened..when the #ChennaiRains Episode happened..
The First thing that left us ..was the Sun Rays..Sun means a lot to you specially when are a mother to a toddler ..and all clothes are wet..you keep dumping them..waiting for the sun..
Then due to continuous rains..Electricity was cut off in the entire area..and you know what happens when there is no electricity..
a) No charge..hence no phone..well no phone means..that’s you are finished..what will you do with your life without phone..I am sure you can’t even imagine that..
b) shut of kitchen appliances one by one..do you know the existence of our life is meaningless..no 1.) Fridge means you have to cook daily..no 2.) washing machine..you can’t change clothes times a day or else you need to wash yourselves..no 3.)microwave..anyways what will you do with microwave ..fridge mein khana waise bhi nahi hai.. 4.) you can’t use your mixer grinder..your life is finished if you don’t have that hand masala grinder.. 5.)other things like toasters and juice makers are all shut down..
c) There were no lift ..that means we were taking stairs and we met neighbors …finally..also lost weight..because we are in the fourth floor..but slowly we decided just to avoid getting down..and anyways there was water everywhere
d) There were few shops available ..where we could buy are grocery..and the main lesson was managing the house expenses in that limited money ..because eventually the ATM also stopped working..
e) Travelling was stopped completely because water has gone inside the car..and road was anyways filled with water so bus service was also not there..
SO..Those seven days..I gained more than I lost..give respect to things around you from people to commodities..everything ..
I will continue this post in the next chapter..stay tuned..till that time ponder how lucky you are to have everything at home..and be thankful..
