This episode of the latest Bengali TV serial Lockdown Diary opens with Gautam, Paro’s husband, telling her that she is being a tad bit overprotective by shielding her son from the world outside his window. He reckons that Angshu is growing up, and should know some of the ground realities of life.
Watch this episode below:
Angshu continues to have a great time with Raju, his new friend from the slum outside his window, and wonders why it is that his mother forbade him from discovering this new walk of life. He and Raju use their makeshift ‘phone’ to hold in-depth conversations with each other. When Raju asks Angshu why his mother has asked him not to open the window, Angshu refrains from telling him as it might hurt his feelings, and says that it is so he does not get distracted from his studies.
Raju mentions that he helps his mother with chores, and casually asks if Angshu does the same too. Angshu realises he does not and Raju advises him to, telling him that mothers constantly work day and night just to maintain a clean environment and provide their family with food and care.
The next day, Angshu asks his mother why it is that they cannot go out of the house at this time. She explains it is because of the Coronavirus pandemic. He then surprises her by offering to help her with her work. Taken aback, she asks how he can do that. He says he will help her fill water bottles. Pleasantly touched, she accepts. He wonders if he should tell her he got the idea from Raju, but instinctively resists.
Later, Paro scolds Angshu for getting his mathematics homework wrong, and for asking for chocolate flakes cereal for breakfast when she has already made a lovely one comprising toast and eggs. Angshu retorts that Basantidi always gave him what he wanted for breakfast, and Paro says that this is the time to eat healthy. He then asks when Basantidi will be back. Paro gets offended and says that she is at home to take care of him herself. Angshu points out that she is always busy with office work and does not have the time to play with him! Paro realises this is true, and offers to make him whatever he wants for dinner.
