A designed drive into the late September sunset,
on Sunday — two days after Mahalaya
that now awaits autumn and the festive season;
on stretches of Kolkata’s eastern highway
flanking quilts of ‘kash phool’ — resplendent
under a blue sky stretched taut, awaiting rain.
Where a man with tackle patiently awaits a catch,
that he may take 6-7 koi home as a day’s work:
to savour Sunday dinner with his wife and children,
having chosen to pursue his hobby in isolation —
as in coronavirus lockdown one needs space away from family — seeking solitary entertainment!
