Focus, dedication, Concentration commitment, productivity, targets…..are the buzz words nowadays. Affection, compassion, empathy, gratitude and altruism have become archaic.

Raised on a diet
Of motivational quotes
We jumped in waters
Of swirling life.

Tightly held by
appraisals and incentives
Goaded by targets
Of productivity

Startup’s and ventures
Stock options and raise
And multiple levels
Of HR rounds

Moulded slowly
By the enterprise divine
To efficiency’s peak
A lonely place

Now at a loss
In the lockdown phase
To deal with a few
Staying at home.

Laptop is life
Laptop is wife
Laptop is a kid
To be spoken to.
