Sometimes I feel like Agam and I needed a kid to live our childhood desires. Like legos for him and shenanigans like cupcake after school and bubble tea after school for me.
I never received any pocket money. So we never had money to spend on after school gimmicks like the vendors outside the school gate or for that matter the famous Pepsi counter in the school. Canteen was also not for people like us.
I love to take Tara out after school. On Friday we like to go for cupcakes, Thursday we go the Farmers market and enjoy lemonade there. And randomly in the week we pick a day for a bubble tea. Like today.
We were listening to old Hindi songs in the car. And I stared singing this. So Tara wanted to know the meaning. And I helped with that. And then I was reminded of the few times my dad would drop us to school and we’d listen to the same songs in the car . He absolutely lived up to the life described in this song. I hope I do too.
My all time favorite lyrics are –
के मर के भी किसी को याद आयेंगे
किसी के आँसुओं में मुस्कुरायेंगे
कहेगा फूल हर कली से बार बार
जीना इसी का नाम है
