The Silence After…


Pin drop silence.

Not a sound.

No sounds of the ‘cartoon-like’ voices from the Cartoon Network and Pogo Channels.

No sounds of the screeching cars, skidding bikes, and loud music from the PlayStation 2.

No sound of a toy dropped down or a splash as the colors paint the floor red!

No rants of a woman, “Don’t do this”, “Lower the volume”, “Shut the door, properly”, “No, eat this!”, “Don’t run in this room”, “Finish your homework”, “It’s hot, you can’t go out” and blah blah blah…

No sounds of a group of kids huddled around a laptop and cheering and laughing at a Ben 10 game.

No sounds of a running tap while hands are washed with a shaving foam.

No sounds of water being transferred from one bucket to another and a running shower.

No sounds of the giggles while pranks are being played.

No sounds of mixing Tang in a glass of water, to make the orange drink.

No sounds of a fridge being opened and closed with a bang, every ten minutes!

No sounds of cheerful, chirpy, sweet questions.

Yes, there is deafening silence everywhere!

Silence…in the kitchen, in the bedroom, in the dining room…

Why? Why?? Why this silence???

Coz, after a 52 day summer vacation, the school has reopened for my baby!!

Am I liking it?????
