Baabul Supriyo

Parliamentarian-singer  Baabul Supriyo is  now  quarantined  in  Kolkata  after  contracting the  Covid virus  for  a  second time.The  first time  Baabul  tested positive was  in August 2020 when he lost his  beloved  mother to the pandemic.

The  central  minister is surprisingly calm  about the Covid re-visit. “Lots of people I know are  getting it a second time. There are  no exaggerated symptoms nothing worse than the last time. My wife  and I both tested positive.We are  locked in the same room in a classic reworking of  the  Hum tum ek kamre  mein band ho song from Raj Kapoor Bobby. We are both doing  okay.”

Baabul  was  in West Bengal when  the virus got him a second time.  “The  first time I  got  the Covid I was in Delhi.This time I was  in Bengal  campaigning  for the elections. Sadly I  won’t be  able  to vote.  But looking at the brighter side, I was able to complete  all  my campaigning duties before  Covid came  visiting again.”

 Baabul is  enjoying this  time  out after the hectic campaigning. “It’s  like  an enforced holiday. We are in our home at  the river bank. It is quiet . I’ve my wife for company. Our daughter is happy with her Naana and Naani in   a different part  of  the house.”

Baabul is  worried about his father’s  health.  “He is  80-plus. Getting  the Covid at his age  would be worrisome.  After I lost  my mother to Covid I’ve become extra- protective  about my Dad.We both miss my mother irrepleacably.”

Baabul got a surprise call from  Asha Bhosle  to inquire  about his health. “She spent  almost an  hour on the phone  talking  to me and my wife, boosting our morale  during these  hard times.At the end of our conversation  I felt  much better. I even sang for her.”
