Maintaining Sanity During The Lockdown
The lockdown has become "मारुतीचे शेपूट". Week after week, it is getting extended for various reasons. Earlier there was second wave. Now, there are talks about "Delta Plus" variant or third wave. No one really knows when we will be starting with normal life.
All the sincere folks are spending time indoors with minimum exposure outside. This has created a different problem. What should folks do staying at home? Initially, we consumed lot of online content. Several movies and serials. However, over a period of time, the appetite to consume more content has gone down. I am spending more time in searching what to watch than actually watching something.
Over last few months, I have deliberately developed some different habits or hobbies, which are helping in keeping the sanity in this lockdown.
About a year back we bought Persang Karaoke set. Mrunmay was developing some interest in singing, so it was perceived to be an apt addition to the gadgets at home. However, it so happened that Meghana and I developed keen interest in singing. Many-a-times, the weekend evenings are filled with the karaoke songs at home. It was a realisation that I could sing that well (!!). Or I would say I have been able to satisfy myself and Persang so as to get scores like this 👇
After doing it for few months, we have started to see some benefits. It is absolutely therapeutic to take a stroll in the backyard, check out the plants and see their growth. Now I have also started experimenting with composting. Let's see how it turns out.
