Me, the Pusthakapuzhu


I was called a pusthakapuzhu

As I slept and woke up with books. 


Books were my lifelines

And my best friends too. 


As days passed, I joined the rat race

And the pusthakapuzhu in me went into hibernation. 


The lockdown had to come,

For me to wake up from the deep sleep,


Trying to become, the old

Pusthakapuzhu again. 


*Pusthakapuzhu means bookworm in Malayalam.
