2022 – I HATE YOU
You horrible – horrible year!! I Hate you and finally Good riddance!!
I had blamed your predecessor 2020 and called it ‘annus horribilis’. How wrong was I?? You have surpassed 2020 with leaps and bounds. You have been petty, mean and absolutely abhorring.
You came and I lost my covirginity. What the first wave and omicron couldn’t do, you ensured that you screwed me however the only solace was that you were gentle and like Mallika Dua once said “कब आये कब गए मालूम ही नहीं पड़ा.”
The 4 decades of my youthful self have remained scar proof with not an iota of foreign body entering it but you mean fellow have ensured that I no more remained a virgin territory.
The second half of your life span ensured that I was put to sleep so that cameras, scissors and unmentionable things could be put in my taut stomach, to take out a dormant body part that you bought back to life oozing your negativity.
You also made sure that the measly 206 bones of my body do not remain intact and like a friend commented; Humpty Dumpty had a great fall that made me turn into an Iron-Man (Ok Titanium it was). The body feels less human and more like a piece of furniture with plates, screws that got confined in a box for 2 months.
2022, what I have ranted about have been just the physical injuries. You have played with my mental peace, emotional well being and to matters that remains strictly between the both of us.
As I look back, I wonder has there been any good news in the past one year and the answer is an emphatic NO!!
Only thing I am glad about are the people that matter have been my side and that I managed to retain my gregariousness despite you!!
Now leave and make was for 2023 with whom as of now I have zero expectations but फिर भी गले मिल कर उसका स्वागत तो करूँगा क्यूंकि –
मार ही डाले जो बेमौत यह दुनिया वोह है ,
हम जो जिंदा हैं तो जीने का हुनर रखते हैं….
