Take a trip to the every day dinner with your family!
The clock strikes nine
The Sharmas sit down for dinner.
Mr. Sharma breaks the ice
By saying Mrs Sharma’s become thinner.
Mrs Sharma stays silent
Hiding her joy.
Teenage Rita on the other hand
Feels a bit annoyed.
Before she could speak up,
Mrs Sharma takes the dais
And goes on about the elections
Not afraid to bury her bias.
The banter becomes lively
With Mrs Sharma defending the left,
And Mr Sharma for the right
Ridiculing his wife with jest.
“The BJP created a dent
In the mighty state of Bengal.”
“Oh don’t you worry dearie!
The TMC’s in for the long haul.”
“And what about the Congress?
The party you so adore
What about their glory,
By which you strictly swore?”
"Give them some time
They have realised their need for reform.
This loss will only strengthen them
It’s the lull before the storm."
Mr Sharma chuckled
Awed by his wife’s innocence
He was charmed by the Modi Mantra
Of this there was no riddance.
Mrs Sharma chuckled too,
For she believed in her foresight.
She made her husband a bet that,
2024 would be the Congress' fight.
Rita watched it all
And in her mind the thought floated,
"Oh how useful their views would be
If only they ever voted."
