Evidently Covid19 fear will be there for a long time, there’s no denying the fact. But as it was said in Jurassic Park First movie “Life finds it way”. So now I am thinking that we are in that stage where life is finding its way out of lockdown.
We at Gehlot Ford & National Tractors and Motors resumed our partial operations only for workshop purposes. But being first day we were not hoping for much of customer so we just did cleaning & checkin of the machines etc so that we can be fully ready as little more of lockdown eases up.
To be very honest first day back felt very confusing and odd to many people. confusing to us that how to get whole operation running with 30% of staff and for staff it was little odd because of social distancing measures, sanitisers and infrared thermometer being pointed to them in every 3 hours.
But I feel this is going to be the new norm now even after lockdown eases and Covid19 fear goes away.
Was talking to my staff and literally some of them thanked and were very happy coming to office mostly because their boredom was going and some were happy with the sanitisation practices we are adopting in the routine life.
Let’s take baby steps and keep the ball rolling under guidelines of government. And pray to God with a hope that tomorrow would be better then today.
Although I was suppose to write this 2 days back but was stuck with some things here and there. The Irony happened when back to back two of the powerhouse actors lost their battle to Cancer.
Sometimes in life when we come across these kind of things we face the realities of life. It don’t matters how much medical science has advanced, or how good doctor or hospital you can afford, or how long your battle is. In majority of the cases it wins and sometimes to just satisfy the ego of mankind cancer lets us win.
The irony happened with both of them that they passed away in such a lockdown time that they had a very small sendoff’s which they didn’t definitely deserved. But rules are rules and us being the responsible citizen have to follow them to the last dot. But major sadness happened with Irrfan Khan as he was not able to go and attend his mother’s funeral few days before, He definitely could have been there for her one last time.
I personally felt that the role of media or insider paparazzi who leaked the home pics of Rishiji’s corps was so bad. Seriously we should respect the privacy of the departed soul’s family. Seeing Ranbeer kapoor’s pic watching his father was just so heartbreaking. they should not have surfaced to the media. I feel it’s just because of few rupees the pics got clicked and shared for the media and paparazzi.
One who had came in this world will definitely have to go “IT IS A FACT” it just a matter of time. If it is your time then you will go and if its not then whatever you do you wont go. We should not crib about how long the life is, We should ponder how Large my life is. There’s this dialogue in movie Neerja “babumoshay zindagi lambi neahi badi honi cahiye “. In the end we should definitely ask “Have I made It Large”
It is a saying with Poker players “Sometimes you have to play the hand you have been dealt”. Although I am not much of a poker player myself but I swear by this quote don’t know why. As we know that we all are away from friends and not able to travel / meet or sit with friends except they are your very close by neighbours or building mates.
In these quarantine / lockdown times I witnessed Corona Warriors of different type. Few of our Round Table India members came forward on few groups on messaging app and started keeping daily Zoom video meetings late at night.
Seriously a boon for people who are social big time and are not able to do socialising in the lockdown. Strictly Fun, No Corona talks, No business talks. Just plain old fashioned Leg pulling and cracking jokes at the expense of others & having a good laugh at the end of day to keep the mind sane in this insane time.
I am proud to say that personally had made 4 – 5 good friends out of these daily calls and this had been an integral part of daily routine from last 15 days.
Was a little skeptical at first to join any of the call where you don’t know much of the people, but in tabling or with Tabler’s (People who are members of Round Table) there are not much of the inhibitions as the thought process is carrying a simple goal in mind. FRIENDSHIP, FELLOWSHIP, FUN.
As a group who is yet so far (in distance) and yet so close, I would definitely like to keep it as a gain in my book in the Quarantine Time Balance Sheet.
So Our dearest Prime Minister Sir Sh. Narendra Modi as expected by few of my intelligent friends has imposed a 21 day countrywide lockdown in order to fight N-Cov19.
And with this we understood that shit is bad and about to turn real ugly as it is happening in Italy etc (For which by the way we are 0% ready). So we took stock of medicines in the house (As its the most important thing in my house) and then the food stuff to sustain these 21 days (in which i still have a doubt that it will get over in 21 days).
So as today was day 1 and even newspapers are discontinued from today which created a sense of boredom in my house. and i am sure in your houses as well.
The main thing in this LOCKDOWN will be keeping our routines alive and engaging the mind with some activity to pass time… as I experienced it first hand it is very easy to get bored as the whole atmosphere is giving a vibe that the time had stopped somehow.
So i to have a ton of activities planned for next few days, ton of books to finish, lot of movies & series to watch and ya most importantly lot of friends & family to catch up with…
Try to do Facetime, whatsapp video calls or anything as much possible to distract from this boredom and recharge for next few hours… trust me this works like a dream….
