Deepika Podukone Turns Poet Amid Coronavirus Lockdown

The lockdown imposed across the globe, owing to the novel coronavirus has brought out the creative side of many people.

While some are on their way to become painters, seems like Bollywood diva Deepika Podukone is giving poetry a try.

In the latest Instagram post shared by the 34-year-old actor, Podukone wrote a couplet alongside a picture of a piano.

“Thank you for the music, the songs I'm(NOT)singing... Thanks for all the joy they're bringing,

Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty

What would life be?

Without a song or a dance, what are we?

So I say thank you for the music

For giving it to me...”

The Piku actor is quarantined at home with husband Ranveer Singh and has been keeping all her fans entertained with her creativity.

Previously, she turned to the social media platform to post pictures of the delicious-looking food she is cooking at home with the caption: “Season 1: Episode 8, COOK. EAT. SLEEP. REPEAT. Productivity in the time of COVID-19!

The post was part of the mini photo series titled ‘Productivity in the time of COVID-19’ that the star started during the lockdown. Podukone gives glimpses of her time spent quarantine at home, one post at a time.

But Podukone is not the only Bollywood diva who is turning to poetry and bringing out her creative side.
Thirty-two-year-old Anushka Sharma too posted a poem on her Instagram recently. Captioned "Today, I wish for all this to end," the Sultan actor shared a beautiful poem on her birthday on May 01.

"I wish today, sadness dwindles.

I wish today, suffering ends.

I know it may not all go away,

It does have its own part to play,

And the role it dawns comes at a price,

With tears and screams and even stifled cries.

I wish today, suffering ends,

Sadness and suffering have been friends.

Suffering is the second act

They play on the same life stage

Making you tumble, slip and fall.

But after that comes your rise,

And rise you will and be so wise.

I wish today, sadness dwindles.

I wish today, suffering ends.-AS."


Today, I wish for all this to end
