My road is deserted since morning. Most shops are closed, and nobody even attempts to venture out of their houses. The people who benefited the most of the solar eclipse that took place today are children. They have a long weekend which started yesterday. And very surprisingly, today is declared a holiday, the reason being the solar eclipse.
Eclipses are natural phenomena, to which various colors and fantasies are added. So will school authorities declare holidays when other natural phenomena occur too?
I sincerely thank God for not being present in an environment which practises no-eating food, no doing this, no doing that during the eclipse; mopping the house, performing pujas after eclipse.
