THE METRONOME/ BLOG POST 18

Summer temperatures are on the rise. Everyone around me seems to be feeling unwell. With Boroline, Shorsher Tel, Macher Jhol and Calcutta out of the way, I may as well get down to talking - and singing - about one of the favourite topics of conversation for many a Bong - ill health and ailments!  I've a sneaky suspicion that just by virtue of being a Bangali, one is blessed with easier access to a wider range of ailments than many others. And therefore, it is but natural, that some of us develop a sort of snobbery about the number of ailments we're able to clock up  - and outdo each other at ! It is often said that one should be careful about asking a Bengali " How are you?" - unless one has time to spare for an answer that could take a while to adequately flesh out.

SONG LYRICS : 

I am not feeling too well

My peace of mind has gone to hell

So many confusing symptoms...

What will happen, noone can tell ! 

The Doctor has said it is best

To hurry up and do all the tests

Only then we will find out

If I have sugar or gout

My stomach is tender, my digestion weak

My liver is delicate, my future is bleak

My iron is low, my pressure is high

Triglyceride is pathetic, will I just die? 

I have spondylosis, my neck has a crick

If i do exercise, it makes me sick

My heart begins to hurt, whenever I run, 

I get dehydration in the heat of the sun! 

I am not feeling too well

My mental peace has gone to hell 

You can tell from my song 

That something is wrong

But treatment noone can tell
