Beginning from the beginning, I can’t understand from where to begin, which one to write first.
Almost everybody is there on either social media apps and from everywhere we are getting one very common message and that is “Stay home, stay safe, maintain social distance, work for society”
At this point of time, everybody is hoping that one day we will be able to defeat Corona virus. Staying at home, hundredths of thoughts are crossing our mind. Meme-makers doing a good job to entertain us.
At this point of time, one song by Bhupen Hazarika is so ironic to the situation –
“মানুষ মানুষের জন্য,
মানুষ কি তাও বোঝে না,
Well they are understanding this. But still now there are many illeterates who are not maintaining social distancing and still having parties. Okay, no offense but if you don’t celebrate birthday or other occasions for one year, you won’t die. If you celebrate, then there are changes that you can.
Many are speaking about the affects of novel Corona virus whole many are speaking about positivity of it too. There’s one universal truth that is everything does not either have 100% good results nor 100% bad effects. Everything gives result in mixtures of bad and good, differing in percentage.
See now don’t take me wrong please. Hundreds of thousands of people have died and many are dying due to this pandemic. The mortality rate is increasing.
On the other hand, level of pollution has decreased to a great extent. Moreover, the ozone layer is healing. The ozone hole is recovering too. The climatic conditions are going back to normal. After many years actually I can clearly distinguish between the seasons of winter, spring and summer. The chirping of birds, fresh air are all so refreshing.
All Avengers fan can actually relate this situation with the movies. Thanos collected all the stones just to vanish half of the population and the superheroes gets united and fight against him and at the end some of them get destroyed too. This is happening in reality. Thanos is Corona virus and the superheroes are the doctors.
In our childhood, we read the moral of the story as ‘United we stand, divided we fall’ but here it is just the reverse.
Not only this, the level of creativity in the field of literature is also increasing as many have started writing poems and well I am kind of encouraging. I am in this field for the last four years.
This lockdown increased our bonding among the family members. Kind of again connected by emotional means when everyone is having lunch together, dancing, singing and enjoying moments. Lockdown kind of helped those who wanted to stop drinking since alcohol shops are closed.
I hope this lockdown could also teach men to respect women and maybe it has since the number of molestation has decreased and this also related to drinking
Staying in home, we also have to take care of ourselves, the doctors aren’t available except for cases of urgency. We also have to remember that now it’s the time for – “EAT TO LIVE”.
The most common thing that I’m thinking is that “What’s going to happen after we defeat Corona virus, after lockdown ends?”
Now coming to how am I spending time?
Well I am completing the things which I left incomplete years before. I’m continuing with my personal record book “The Superlatives”. I’m learning to cook the regular recipes made in home. I thought of writing my first story book and well I’m writing it unknowingly whether I’ll be able to make others read it or not. Also learning more about dinosaurs.
Also that I am playing a game called Episode. You can read stories of different genres and choosing plot and looks of characters. Those who didn’t know about this game, well go to play store, install it and start reading. And also follow Episode in Instagram and Facebook.
