The 70's

Had I met you in the 70s,

the bee would have bumbled, not humans

the emotionally unavailable would have existed as an idea, not a person

the 'chill' in ๐˜•๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ง๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜น ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ค๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ย would have been a hush-hush affair, not the usual

the hook (ups) would be used only to hang clothes and not emotions

the ๐˜ค๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ ย would have been a subject of poetry and not a storage platform

(We would read the poetry we wrote for each other from the letters which were burnt and torn)ย 

the 'in' in the inbox would have been replaced with post

the old Hindi songs would have been the current ones, hummed with chai and toast

the phobia in commitment phobia would not have existed

the hopeless in ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ค would have been lifted

And proudly been nostalgic of an era we were a part of.
