The schools are shut since March 2020, parks are deserted and kids are not able to go out from the confinement of their homes. The COVID-19 pandemic has created a strange world for all of us, and kids have gotten most affected. The classes are now online but they miss the physical rooms and sitting with their best friend without the fear of a deadly virus that can infect them. The global crisis has deprived the kids from their childhood fun. On top of it, parenting in these uncertain times have become a lot more difficult. And Bollywood actor, Shahid Kapoor's wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor perfectly sums up the story of every parent in the pandemic.

Before we take you further into the story, let us take a quick recap of mommy, Mira, and daddy, Shahid's 'how to be a cool parent' book. We all know that Mira belongs to a close-knit family in Delhi and Shahid suffers from the pain of a broken family, and together as a unit, they have decided to give the best for their kids. From colouring their little barbie doll, Misha's hair to jumping on the trampoline with her, they have done it all. They are the cool-parents every kid ever wishes to have!
On August 18, 2020, Mira took to her Instagram stories and posted a funny note for the parents, who are forced to attend online classes with their kids. The note which Mira shared can be read as "What is Karma? Parents who bunked classes decades ago. Now, have to attend their kids' online classes with them." Check it out below:
Last year, Mira had turned stylist for her little angel and had accessorised Misha's hair with the 90's hair clips. And frankly, it had made us nostalgic remembering the good old days. She had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared a picture of her daughter wearing little coloured alligators clips. She had captioned it as "Hair accessories from the 90's!" atop the picture.

Coming back to Mira and her motherhood journey, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, she had opened up about her tough pregnancy. She had shared, "I had a tough pregnancy. I mean I went through those five months of a difficult time to bring my daughter into this world. So, now I want to spend every moment that I can with her and I think that I am." She had further added, "There is a set of responsibilities that are on my plate and I feel that at my age, I have a lot more energy. I have my future ahead of me so I can finish all of my responsibilities and then I have nothing in my way. You know I can raise my daughter, I can be a good wife, I can set my house the way I like, not in terms of the way things should be but the way home must be with its values and ideals. So, nothing will stop me after that but I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work. Why did I have her? She is not a puppy, you know. I want to be there for her as a mother, seeing her grow up has, cannot be quantified." (Don't Miss: 'Drishyam' Fame, Roshan Basheer Gets Married To Furzana Anub, Granddaughter of Mammootty's Uncle)
Well, Mira's definition of Karma is so apt and all parents will agree to it!
