Interestingly during the extension of this lockdown easing up of districts or businesses was allowed. It was decided that few of the important sectors like agriculture & related industries can be allowed to operate citing the Covid19 conditions in the said town.
So being in automotive industry had been reading and talking with lot of people regarding the opening and functioning (How, What, When, Who) kind of things and few others. Few pointers which definitely popped up in mind is the kind of responsibility which a business-owner will be taking on ones head.
Firstly is it definitely worth it to go with so much of trouble with authorities, administration & police force firstly to get the Travel passes. We need to do a detailed Cost v/s benefit study before taking this decision.
Secondly, The customer inflow would be very minimal as automobile industry is majorly customer driven. And even after lifting of lockdown the People wont be very forthcoming / eager to buy the cars ASAP.
Thirdly, As per the News / Views & messages on our dearest Whatsapp IF any of the employee or Customer gets infected and it gets traced back to us (Us being the business owner) we will be charged by an FIR, Seizing of Office Premises for who knows how many days & Massive Quarantine of whole staff & Customer database who we interacted with.
Fourthly, Had tried applying for pass for my Agri Business but frankly I got Rejected, I tried asking the reason for rejection & no one was able to give a proper grounds for rejection. Felt like none of the authorities we ready to take responsibility for issuing the passes to masses. Even though they are not wrong on their part as the stakes are very high right now, any misstep and we will have a severe outbreak like other cities, states, countries.
Just not in favour of opening right now as being a responsible citizen is more important then being a responsible Businessman.
Stay Indoors, Stay Safe
As we know that whole of India is in lockdown (No thanks to COVID19) we all need to stay sane in this tiering time. We all had been trying to stay sane in these troubled times so was just wanting to share with you the ways i had been coping up day to day and what some of my friends are doing to hold up.
Thanks to Netflix, Hotstar & Amazon prime all the entertainment things are taken care of some super series and movies are to be watched in these times Money Heist on Netflix is one promising to watch for, Special Ops on hotstar is a good home grown limited series i watched.
Please don’t watch too much of NEWS on TV Channels as in my point of view it gives less information and more tension to us. Day and Night speaking about CORONA is also not good. I myself had Psyological corona for a few days because of this news. Seriously guys it gives me the creeps watching COVID related news whole day so i skip it as much possible.
As for self learning and knowledge increase i had few of the pending books which was pending i am on verge of completing 3 of them. Seriously people it is the best way of passing time and increasing your knowledge at the same time. If you are light on reading material and cant shop for new books there are plenty of them available on kindle or search online i am pretty sure you can find it there.
One thing that is most important is spending time with family as most of us are too busy in our daily routine life that it gets hampered. Play board games, watch some Movie together, talk to each other, for me and my family regular SEQUENCE time & Ramayan are a daily must. And don’t forget having meals together it is a must. If you have pets like me then do invest time in training & nurturing them.
The thing that is keeping me most happy or sane is my Gaming. Regular night PUBG session or online Monopoly with friends it gives certain happiness and satisfaction of the day.
So people stay busy, keep a positive mindset and come out of this lockdown with some new skill, hobby, learning.
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….
Stay Indoors Stay Healthy
Our dearest Prime Minister Sir requested the whole nation to do a self curfew of 14 hours in order to fight this panic of our lives corona virus. As it was on a Sunday so it wouldn’t have created much of a mess in routine life.
Brilliant decision sir, lot of scientific logic behind it as well for the prevention and to stop further spreading it. But as this was going on Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Sir Sh. Ashok Gehlot Ji gave an order of total lockdown till 31.3.2020
Now the tension started in terms of work, life imbalance, and few big questions came to my mind
- How will daily wages workers go on with their lives
- How will business owners pay salaries
- How will business owners close the year as we are on brink of financial year end.
- What about the whole economic cycle of our state. how we will cope with it…???
only two answers comes to my mind
- Only Time will Tell
- This too shall pass
This too shall pass but what about the cost…???
sometimes somethings are best left on God to decide and show the way.
We should help the government by doing our end of the deal…
Stay indoors & Stay healthy
