Today, Social Distancing  Makes Us Good  Neighbours…. Reminisces of A Covid Course  Life.

Our next door neighbours have become our WhatsApp friends, we see them on mobile screens; meet them in zoom rooms, What a dilemma of life? Covid came as a snail and now is wandering like a lion in the world, obliterating each and every walk of human life making us immobile and dumbfounded like lifeless statues longing to breathe fresh air and normal life. What is this life full of covid when will we get rid of this black pantheon ,without being apart, without veils and handcuffs of fear, a world devoid of panic and stress.

We have been stuck in our houses for months and every day face the terrible news that people around us are dying ………for some tragically their loved ones. When are we possibly going to move outside and socialise. As for myself, I personally feel this lockdown as a re-entry syndrome, a new pattern will emerge for a foreseeable future. We may start to ruminate excessively “Will I be safe? What happens if I lose my job? What if I can’t see my family and friends? We may find ourselves avoiding attempts to reintegrate back into the new normal life, by avoiding going out and preventing ourselves from adapting to new normalities. Lockdown has seen by many as a negative experience, but I felt it like an experience which we have never dreamt of, or fore seen but truly it has taught us to be strong and determined to face the challenges it has brought along with it, it has taught us to seek, to yield and not to succumb. You might find yourself turning down meetings or feeling like you might have a panic attack before you go out ,but try to focus on the positives and get back out as soon as you can, we as humans need contact to thrive. Friends when we are cursing the lockdown and we are indoors, we have seen some great human shapes draped in full suit ,in white, in green ,in blue colors risking their personal safety and staying away from their families to treat patients infected with this deadly pandemic ,Well a big salute to all these angels in human form .We cannot forget the humanitarian attitude of a lot of expat volunteers who are also risking their lives and assisting people who are struggling to meet their basic necessities like food and groceries under the crown of AIIMS which has become synonymous with humanity in disguise. Their caring hands are reaching out to the community in need. A big salute to AIIMS and its noble endeavours. We cannot forget the officials of the police department, the municipality, the staff of the supermarkets, the cleaning staff,delivery boys toiling hard to serve us ,all those brave hearts who are risking their lives to help us.A big salute to all these brave warriors.Pondering over a post covid life, I feel covid is going to sync into our daily life with frequent hiccups but we will learn to gargle it out with ease and blow it out through our world. Authorities are taking a lot of initiatives to compensate for the loopholes be it in education or any other ventures which has got crippled due to the covid contagion. Students are getting access to virtual online classes to make up for the lost classes ensuring their career and lives, building process oriented teams for 21st century schooling.


When are we going to let off from the shackles of fear,anxiety,stress,insecurity,and open the key of freedom to move around ,socialise and fly high to aspire, to hope, to positivize, to breathe flawless air.
