So a 21-day lockdown for all of us is here in India. Exciting news huh? Yahan mein soch rahi thi ki my self-isolation will be over in a few days and I’ll be able to head out, but it looks like it will be a little bit longer for both you and I.

How can you and I make it a 21-day-positivity lockdown?
I’m trying to be as positive as possible. I showed you guys how I’m working out from home. I’m eating healthy, I’m reading books, listening to music, dancing, and calling all my friends. I’m doing everything possible that will keep me sane and keep me motivated. I hope you guys are doing the same. 

So, let’s make this a 21-day-positivity lockdown. How about that? You know, learn a new hobby. Pick up the guitar that’s been catching dust for so many years. Learn to play some music. Let’s do something fun and exciting! And you know, one of the things that I’m also doing in addition to all this is that I am making a long list of things that I intend to do once I’m out of this lockdown. 

What’s my plan of action post-lockdown?
So number one thing is I’ll go for a run. Yes! How about a half marathon? Uhm thoda zyada ho jayega! Okay. I’ll just go for five kilometers. So I’ll go for a run and I have my favorite ice cream.

What else? Of course, I’m going to meet all my crazy friends. They’ve been driving me crazy on the phone every single day. They’ve been video conferencing me all the time. I love you guys, But now I’m getting irritated. I’m also excited about going back to work. Oh my god, yes! I want to go back to work. I want to meet all my colleagues. Yes, I miss you guys. I can’t believe I’m saying this.

Here’s my prayer of hope during this testing times
I hope this lockdown is fun. It’s not full of anxiety for you guys and you’re able to support each other and let’s be there for each other. Let’s help each other out. Why don’t you call up some friends whom you’ve never spoken to, call up someone whom you want to reach out to, and talk about the good old times. Help each other!

Help out your elderly neighbours! So let’s do our bit for each other? Let’s stay positive, because guess what-we can do this!
