Breakfast Babble: ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in people.

While there could be limitless reasons to curse this quarantine, I have reasons to consider it a blessing in disguise. 

I have never been in a situation like this before. Actually now, when I am homebound with my parents, I realize that there were so many dimensions of my relationship with them which remained untouched because none of us had the time to interact properly, given this fast-paced life of ours. Here, I will tell you some of the ways in which I came closer to my parents during this lockdown.

Watching Classic Movies Together

The obsession of my parents with the movies of their youth makes up for a cinematic experience at home. Every afternoon, a ‘new’ old movie is decided upon and we all sit together to watch it.

I really enjoy sitting together with my parents and taking a break from binge-watching on my laptop.

Trying New Recipes 

Even when we are on a break from almost everything, cooking trends just don’t stop taking the Internet by storm because hunger is the biggest constant. So, my mother-cum-great cook and I, vigilantly look for new recipes to try hands-on. 

Though poor me can hardly contribute to the cooking, later on, I click some nice shots of her mouth-watering dishes and do the cliché task of posting them on my stories, because why not?

Hair Cuts Are Not Only The Barber’s Cup Of Tea Now

Being a Marwari businessman, my father would hardly have any time to care for fashion. But this quarantine revealed a hidden side of my otherwise nerdy father. Not only do I love to see him giving my brother a smart haircut, but I also appreciate him for that.

Sunsets On The Terrace

Before this, I never realized how beautiful the sunset looks from my terrace, and they are all the more beautiful with my family together.

Earlier, it would be so hard to catch them- I had only mornings and nights at home, but now I have found the long-lost evenings which makes me wonder how much better life would be if these happy moments would always be a part of it.

The slowing down of our schedule and forced confinement have actually helped me bond better with my family, and this is something I intend to continue with even after the lockdown.
