After a long time, I am in mood. I know that I may learn lessons even from a child. I have been to school to get certificate as license for getting service to be useful to clear dues to the society. I know nature is an open book. I have learnt a lot from it. I have finally understood that nothing is mine. I accept that I have to leave all my copyrights here before departure. I have seen people, hoarding for nothing. They are helpless when government’s agencies raid for properties purchased disproportionate to their income. But I am astonished to note that my neighbors are boasting on raid of income tax department. It proves that they are rich by hook or by crook and having money, but are not traitors. They get more respect, more invitations to attend functions, after raid. Even media give coverage to them.
I have no money and no respect among my neighbors. But I am famous in my area because of by habits of drinking coloured or colourless water, that is tasty liquor for me. It is my best friend and encourages me to do the impossible things. I forget myself and people get entertained in gratis- free of cost. Older ones give intelligent comment, as well wishers of my family and repent on my plight. But the children and young ones enjoy from my drain dwelling. Every dog of my street recognizes me as friend. They take care of me on the street better than sensible neighbours.
Really, I feel myself very bad person for family as well as for the society, when I am normal. I want to meet my natural end at the earliest for benefits of all others.
But I have changed my mood and am thankful to invisible eye opening, ever changing and challenging virus sir’s effect COVID-19, the pandemic. Everyone was fearing by the grace of virus sir and preferred to be in self locked house. What a pleasant surprise- mother nature was happy. Air and rivers’ water have cleaned themselves, pollution free. Sky was clear. For the first time I saw stars twinkling with joy. But I was in trouble only for my sweetie liquor. It was not easily available as there was complete lock down and market with enticing liquor shops was closed. There were complete dry days. I used my days fruitfully, I got some knowledge from discussions on economy by law maker leaders through TV during lock down. This added fuel to the fire and I became a little bit nervous due to non availability of my tonic. But one day virus sir got pity and some shops were permitted to open. It was to my utter surprise that my heart catching, all time attractive and life giving lovely shop of liquors were given first priority. I, for the first time, understood the vital role of liquors in the earnings in economy. I felt proud to be consumer of economy booster. There were cartoons in many news papers and social sites on the importance of brain soothing liquor in economy. It was more encouraging and I felt myself in heaven. But a few state governments raised taxes on my beloved liquors to fill their coffer. It could not deter my determination to be by the side of my enticing bottle, full of energy and enjoyment. I was thanking to all my friends who introduced me to this life changing liquid and made it my habit for ever.
Now, my doubt, on banning the liquor sale by all political parties in their manifestos during election and there after keeping them in cold storage till next election, was clear. I was so grateful to virus sir that my special role in the economy became evident. I was feeling proud and was on the top of the world. I congratulated myself first time in life on this so called bad habit. I remember a dilogue of a very famous film and think in the similar way for me – I am a drunkard but I am not bad man.
Now, I know good habit constructs but bad habit contributes. Now, I have gratitude to myself. Otherwise, I always pay the same to others and use to be obliged for trivial assistance given by them in carrying me home in night. I, even, usually express thankfulness to not deserving one for nothing. It shows my humbleness, a good habit of liquor’s effect.
Now I have courage to have a demand that area around the shop upto certain distance should be declared as prohibited to avoid disturbances in peaceful and heaven feeling, consuming milieu and tress passers will be prosecuted strictly. In such areas of comfort real meaning of democracy is understood and unity within diversity is strictly observed without vested interests. Everyone does not want disturbances in heavenly sitting, concentration, discussion and at last during unification with bottle wherein soul is floating. Every drop matters for its lovers in the line of water conservation, where every drop of water is assumed to be saved.
So, neglecting my brothers of pious soul, useful to the nation may have hazardous effects, because this profession is economic booster not only in rainy days but also in happy days. Persons like me are respectable and deserve space in society, because we follow rules and my shops are functioning under license. If possible there may be my day. I am waiting for welcoming function for all our brothers who are contributing in uplifting the standars of living of others via economic growth. We are givers and givers only.
If every one of us give details of direct as well as indirect benefits of this so called bad habits, there will be shortage of papers to jot down. Every drop of pleasure giving, grief removing and idea generating nectar like pious liquid is giving everything and needs proper respect. A separate chapter on liquid economics on liquors should be devoted in the concerned subject. We are finally thankful and express sincere gratitude to virus sir for making known to the world, the power of common but special liquid famous as liquor.
