Kick the Covid

I am a hopeful individual. Because I know life is not always a bed of roses.

I am very grateful for people and their services that let us sit on our couches and keep us going 🙏.

I am certain that the present global scenario (a pandemic and an economic turmoil) will help the current generation of kids overcome the impediments and make the world more scientific, robotic, and virtual. Up until now, we’ve had only complaints about kids on the phone, not having in-person interaction, lack of communication skills, etc. But, now, in this shelter-in process, they are better placed: better organized, active personal connections and limited distractions (they’re preparing for their academic and other activities) handling the curveball of Covid that life threw at us.

We as a family have come up with charities monthly that are closer to our hearts from the countries that embraced us.

Not so much worried about quarantine or homeschooling with mine. As kids, they have survived without holidays for 3 years at one point. I make it a point that they understand and absorb the emotions and priorities that maketh humans. That’s how I grew up, and that’s what I believe in!

Stay safe, and let’s kick the Covid! We can do this, and we will.

Kick the Corona

Lokah samasthah sukhino bhawanthu- May all the beings be happy and free.

We haven’t stocked up groceries or toilet rolls, fearing embargoes, and blessed with caring friends who are even willing to share what they have in pressing times such as now. Carrying the baton forward, we are looking at making ourselves resourceful to those in need.
In times of “stay-at-home” notices, it’s also important to appreciate those who keep us running: army, police, medics (doctors & nurses alike), postal service, civic services, and many others of whom I may be unaware. After all, they are braving this Covid19 with full steam. My heart also goes to those daily-wage workers most affected by this virus, both emotionally and physically.

I am neither a doctor nor a policymaker. As a layman, all I can do is stay positive and spread the same.

The past couple of weeks made us realise how close we humans are as a race across the oceans. Also, this is bringing local communities together.

Beating all the odds, we are climbing up.

Our best days are ahead of us. Let’s cheer up!
