Spotlight shifts!!



Times have changed now.

I, the black insipid garbage bag lay

in the corner of the dingy utility

sloppy, with no body to care for me

I was a lonely soul, carrying the burden of

all the trash piling up on my shoulders,

unceremoniously, thrown into a huge dump.


But times have changed now.

The lock down has sure changed people.

Suddenly my mistress

seems to be interested in me.

She takes special care to dress up,

with matching accessories,

picks me up tenderly,

steps out to drop me

with a beautiful smile.

Ah….these are the best days of my life.

Times sure have changed now!!

A few days back got this image as an Whatsapp forward. Just penned down a different take on it. Hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

Stay safe!

  1. Hahaha Radhika! Just a couple of days back I was talking to a friend who said her kids fight over who would take the garbage out as it means getting out of home! How times change perspective! Nice one. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜„

  2. Hi Radhika,
    Honestly Radhika, your blog would have brought out the typically toothless smile, and the naughty twinkle in the eyes of the great Mahatma Gandhi if he were to read it.
    Apart from the humor, I see a depth of wisdom in your writing.
