The beginnings of lockdown we relaxed and celebrated our days, yet now everything ceases. We realize we have to put up ourselves in yet another different contour, to prevent ourselves from an early death.
When the lockdown continues, we too tend to change much with that. Now we don’t think to take things as they were in the beginning. And we dare to take things as bluntly as they are.
It’s exactly like, the centre cannot hold and things fall apart and we humans in the midst tune ourselves to the best of we could to take things as part and parcel of our life and no faces without a mask, the one we hid always within us to defy us and displayed a different one, never showing our hypocrisy.
Everyone does exactly suffer. No freedom of movement and sort of liberty would end our life in stake. The beginnings of lockdown we relaxed and celebrated our days, resorting to our past time hobbies, and even trying all culinary, arts and the like. But now everything ceases. We realize we have to put up ourselves in yet another different contour, to prevent ourselves from an early death.
The economy fall, poverty, the stranded population who cannot be back to their home. We are stuck somewhere and surely need to rise back our empire.
The only way to stay connected is by our thoughts for others either our dear ones or our fellow people. The schools and educational institutions remain closed for months, and now to bring in lights back to the minds of the children, the student community, they have resorted back to all online class platforms, seeking all the goodness.
Thanks to the cinema community too. Not just they entertain, rather makes us think and rethink many topics that were left unthought. And we become fortunate enough to view the world through them too.
Anyways let not end ourselves in fear. We shall anyway overcome this and rise back again, for the life is always ours.
