Dear Diary, Sunday always used to be a special day of week. Employees waiting for Sunday to spend their entire day sleeping, playing any hobby, cooking if she is a women and doing nothing but be at home all the time. Housewives waiting for Sunday to go out with their family for dinner, housewives considering Sunday a "No Cooking Day" as well. After reading this fact about housewives, my mom wouldn't consider this right, not for her case atleast and I guess my mom's mentality about this is more or less similar in every Indian moms. Indian moms loves cooking and wanted their child to stay as much far away as they can from outside eatable stuffs. Students are waiting for most eagerly for Sundays. By studying for 6 days in a week, Sunday becomes the only day when they can plan outside games, more time with family and sometimes want to chat or play games online (this generation's children). More or less Sunday has become a day for which every single person is waiting eagerly. Nowadays this Sunday for which everyone used to wait has become a normal day.


Why so? As we are locked down in our respective house since almost 3 weeks. Be it a Monday or Wednesday or Sunday, all have become the same. All days are spending with family, while people like me and in my house must be enjoying their all days by watching Ramayana and Mahabharata which is now taking over all the attention which was previously shared by sports, entertainment and movie channels. My SundaSunday is no more a special day now. ys are passing with the quantum of sleep followed by the house's work and doing video calls with friends, family, and cousins. I don't know whether I have enjoyed this time ever before. Though we are locked down, the majority of people would be on work from home mode while some are passing their day by taking 6 or even more than that power naps and video calls and in between it they might be scolded by their parents as well. But time is passing well, we are locked inside but time with family is not locked yet, love with people is neither locked too. We were before the home quarantine was like busy in our jobs, outside life we hardly had a day that spent well with the family. Now I hardly miss my outside life, I am connected with my cousins and friends with whom I hardly had a line to text before the quarantine. Locked down has locked out feet inside the house but opened connection with them who are far away from us. After this locked down, we'll get back to normal, get busy with our work and personal space but don't know whether we'll have ever this quarantine Sunday to live.
