When I learnt of the novel coronavirus, I had been anticipating and expecting certain inconveniences like the present lockdown assuming that it would spread globally. One cannot neglect the complexity of disease, knowing the science behind it. As an Entrepreneur, it was also my responsibility to aware people about Covid19. Lockdown does not mean you get frustrated in all aspects of life. The one important aspect to remember is that you are not the only one facing the problem. You are asked to stay at home for your own safety and that of the community. With my experience among these days, I can state that staying at home is important to control the spread of the disease.
I make sure to obtain information only from authentic sources such as the World Health Organisation, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. and it is essential to follow the orders and regulations of government.
Apart from reflecting upon my business enterprise, I also had time to read a book that I wanted to read for a long time, I could teach my 2 brothers, and Also Provide training about Cooking to My mother and sister at home. I call my parents as many times as I want in a day. Though these may seem like small things, I often craved to do the same on my busy days or rather ignored the nuances of life by running behind the pseudo-passion that people like me develop amidst competition. The lockdown has taught me to evolve, upgrade and be resilient to change and overcome the challenges. Not everyone is lucky to see another day nor will we get a chance like this to be at home with people we love. Life and its chapters will grow but we need to adapt to positive.
Let us learn to unlearn and get reintroduced to our true selves so that we can walk out after the lockdown as a new person into a new healthy world with new experiences and challenges.
