Shreya Ghoshal talks about her small and big joys

Lockdown has come as a blessing in disguise for Shreya Ghoshal, so to speak, as the singer is enjoying the time she is spending in her home.

Posting pictures on her social media handle, she wrote: “After eons I am home during monsoons. This time of the year I am usually on long concert tours, away for months, missing out on all the lush greens, blues and the dark greys that the rains bring..

My verandah has become my happy space since the lockdown and I have been trying to make the most of my stay at home life by bringing the outdoors indoor. My plants are eagerly waiting for the rains so am I.

I have found so much joy in patiently waiting to see a sapling emerge from the soil, or a new baby leaf unfurl or to see these stunning flowers giving me surprises each morning as it emerges on a new branch.”

The popular singer added: “Small joys are the biggest joys of life. We tend to ignore the sweet experiences which are surrounding us all the time and instead search for happiness in ambitious maddening rat race of life. Learning everyday to pause and breath. Sending you all positive happy vibes. ♥️”
