What a joy to skip traffic mile!

What a happiness to avoid gasoline fill-up, emptying purse!

What wonderfulness not to skip breakfast, lunch, tiffin, dinner that too homely!

What a beautiful thing to be with spouse and kids and not to be too!

No Travel, No TA/DA; yet lot of liquidity at hand!

No Visits, No Visitors; yet lot of enjoyment at home!

No Party, No Get-together; yet, merry making at home front!

No school dropping/drop-up, No Uniform wash, No, need to remember ID card No need to pack TWO tiffin boxes, water bottle, fruits, juice pack!
