Happiness is

Happiness is a walk on a rainy day

with the sky all coloured a silvery grey.

Happiness is a yellow umbrella

and clothes drying quick in this damp rainy weather.

Happiness is the joy that we feel,

when the roads are flooded – even though the drains haven’t been cleaned.

Happiness is a state of mind,

the spirit of Mumbai that always stays high.

Happy, but unfortunately often complacent,

but we have expectations and they’re getting urgent.

So much plastic in packaging and no at-source segregation,

And not enough space for sufficient home composting.

Still we’re happy and grateful that we’re all ok,

The immediate need is to stay Covid-safe.
