In early March, when the Corona Virus impact was peaking in Wuhan, India was just starting to take precautions. The ringing sound on phones was replaced – not by music but by a cough followed by a Corona virus message telling us to wash our hands. The message has kept changing, offering other advice to keep safe.
Precautionary measures started being put in place. Malls and theatres were the first public places that were asked to close. International travellers were asked to quarantine themselves. Big parks shut.
Over the world, people tried to find their own solutions to the COVID-19 problem.
A one day nation-wide curfew in India on 22nd March, followed by a 21-day lockdown meant that only essential services/offices would remain open. This till 14th April as per current plan.
No flights. No trains. No buses. No driving. No going to office. No school. No parties. No parks. No temples. No outdoor active exercising. No domestic help. Wash hands. Stay home. Wear face masks if you need to step out. Social distancing is the keyword.
Adversity brings out the best in creativity, and Whatsapp does full justice to the time people spend on dishing out entertainment for everyone. Enjoy!
Today is Day 14 of lockdown. 7 more days to 14th April. How much longer after that, we do not know, but when this is over…
