I was directly admitted to the ICU. Since, I lived with my friends in a rented apartment and spent like there was no tomorrow, we were really doubtful if we could provide for my initial fees. Plus direct entry to ICU, so one can only imagine the cost. But for me, the saving grace was the health insurance policy that I had brought from a friend.
Here's a tribal lady asking you to stop right where you are; she wishes to know if you have dabbed into your creativity off late!

There are people around us going through joblessness, anxiety, fear, depression. Not all are lucky to have a steady income, a roof over their head and a loving caring family. This poem makes us reflect on our blessings, while we take a moment to check on these people around us. Now is the time!

I let out an internal scream so loud, that the glass panes of the airport facade shattered to a thousand pieces. I imagined it to all accumulate and form one big hammer, which I wielded against just everyone who I could think of: the back-stabbing colleague who had made my day hell; the lost uber driver; the airline staff; the person sitting next to me playing bhajans from YouTube on loudspeaker - I hit them all. Hard. Over and over again.
