Flu Blues!



For the first time in history, maybe, Mumbai is giving a miss to its traditional 'dahihandi' festival of merriment in celebration of the Birth of Lord Krishna.

Political parties are falling over each other to show passion and compassion for humanity. With Swine flu deaths crossing 21, majority of them in Pune and Mumbai, people are paranoid. All schools and colleges and cinema theaters and malls are closed in Pune and Mumbai.

The government is doing its best to make people aware, give all medical facilities and appealing to them to avoid congregations.

This marks the start of the festive season in Mumbai. With Swine flu, poor monsoon and drought situations in many parts of the state and country celebrations are bound to be subdued.

But today's restraint could well be the ecstasy of tomorrow! Cheer up!
