the infection

“Longbottom’s got infected” said Michael pitching the ball across the yard.

“How come? What’s the source?” Bon swivel round and watched Fluffy making a dart for the ball.

“Newspaper”

“In my humble opinion, newspapers don’t spread Corona. By the way, I read every day, never got infected. I keep an eye for the danger. If a close one is infected I phone but I don’t take infection either.”

“It’s important to keep the infected person at a distance and take extra care for cleanliness and personal hygiene.”

“He’s got a weak immune response maybe.”

“I reckon it’s the hole in his heart he carries since his childhood that lords it over him and all his systems.”

Smita Ray is the mother of two lovely kids and hails from northeastern India. Her perpetual displeasure arising from the hypocrisy in the society underneath the semblance of religion, culture as well as the conditioning for compliance urged her to put down the impressions in her mind. In her spare time, she likes to have some culinary adventures along with her kids trying new recipes or crafting. She describes herself as -- a soulmate, a life alighted on the earth catching the rhythm passing by her. A tinge of joy colours her world and lays its feet on the land where revellers are awaiting her to get into the groove.
