When the lockdown started I was very stressed about how will we manage the house without maids and how will I keep my toddler busy. But things worked out pretty smoothly. Everyone in the house has been contributing to the completion of household tasks. The work has increased but everyone is in this together. This feeling of being in a lockdown is actually creating a sense of independence. Many of you must be wondering how can we feel independent in a lockdown? Our dependence on maids and nannies have increased so much that we cannot imagine a life without them. But the lockdown has compelled us to do our own work, clean our homes, wash utensils, take care of our children and cook meals. The quarantine period has thus made us more independent than we could ever imagine.
Before the lockdown, I barely got a chance to read a book. But in the past 16 days, I have completed one book and am reading another one. I also took up some free courses on creative writing in the last couple of days. And I managed to write 21 blogs in just 16 days. While doing all this, I am also satisfied with the time I was able to spend with my family. We eat together these days and we watch Mahabharata and Ramayana together too. The best part is that despite being at home, my daughter is growing beautifully. She has started forming sentences, climbing furniture, dancing, singing and identifying animals, birds, fruits and vegetables. We managed to achieve so much despite staying at home. By staying at home, we are also helping society achieve a solution to the pandemic. I am not worried about the extension of lockdown because I am living in my present with faith that a better tomorrow is waiting for us at the end of this period.
I have written fiction, poetry, participated in the Writing challenge. Please read them and share your feedback in the comments section.
