So my amiable viewers hope you all are fine. So here I am with some specific words that are being used in the present pandemic scenerio. It’s not just to inform you all about them but it’s main motive is to distract our minds from everything going around us and learn something new and something creative.
Underlying are some words that you need to add in your Quarantine-Dictionary .
1. Doomscrolling:- Obsessively scrolling for updates on the pandemic even thought there’s no positive news mentioned.
2. Coronadose:- It refers to overdosing on bad news. (stay away from this one please)
3. Quarantini:- A kind of a drink or cocktail that people consume while they are in quarantine.
4. Covidiot:- Ones who behaves with reckless/careless disregard for the safety of others.
5. Panicdemic:- The result or consequences of doomscrolling or coronadosing.
6. Quarantime:- The slow and unpredictable passage of time passed in isolation.
7. Caremongering:- Spreading love and kindness to help the vulnerable and lonely people.
8. Pandemiquette:- Social etiquette shown during a pandemic (e.g. no handshaking, coughing into the elbow, etc.).
I hope you all are staying home, following safety measures and keeping your Family safe.
With everything going around what we really need to understand is that “spread awareness and not at all share the rumours”. Day before yesterday I came across a very witty incident (dumb too). A news channel was showing a news about certain people who believed that if the small children offer water to 7 people around them then they will escape from this pandemic COVID-19. Yes you read it right. I had that same expressionless face with a shocking “what ?”. And hearing this news through a very certified TV channel was really like “are you kidding ?”.
I mean come on people we are living in 21st century. We have a subject called “SCIENCE”. And literally like what is going on? Let’s not stop using our minds because of the so-called fear and hype created by people.
What I want to focus on is that there is a very thin line between “faith” and “superstition”. On one side our Doctors and nurses are fighting for us with the scientific and technological help and on the other side what are we doing ? Believing on such baseless rumours.
And also there are people debating on that no one will survive this virus. So for them I have a reply that – okay we’re gonna die so okay no problem BUT it’s far better to just die than to die believing in such baseless rumours.
The situation is already serious. So let’s not make it a hype and believe or spread these rumours.
One of my friend Mansimran Kaur ( https://www.instagram.com/p/B-T7YIrlOeR/?igshid=1m1nmqjy6vcrf ) has worked and started an initiative to spread awareness about these rumours. So give it a look and also I am sharing her work in my post. She has clearly mentioned that how these rumours took many lives in Iran. So let’s use our brains (an organ that is not in a quarantine I suppose) so that anything like this doesn’t happens in India.
So next time no spreading and believing these rumours (don’t even hear them). And please do follow the lockdown guidelines very seriously. Following this lockdown will not give anything to the government but it is done to protect us, our families and this entire nation. Let’s pray and hope that everything gets okay and back to normal.
Stay safe, take precautions, don’t worry and I hope you’re having a great time with your Family.
Not gonna write “something new” but yes gonna drag your attention towards “something important”.
It’s a high time now. High time of taking the men around us as an advantage. We’ve started taking the men around us as an iron suited superheroes who doesn’t have any emotions, who don’t feel pain, who can’t even cry.
Why ? I mean, are they not humans ? Why it’s okay to see a woman crying and why are we shocked if a tear roles down on that face with moustache. Why ?
They too have emotions, they too are humans. The extent to which I am concerned I relate “men” as coconuts. Yes like a cocunut; hard from outside but soft from inside. They don’t show doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings. They don’t cry doesn’t means they don’t have lacrimal glands (being a bio student though).
Rather than appreciating their quality of handling situations, WE, the “so-called society” has started considering them as an emotionless creature. They too need a shoulder, a shoulder not just to cry on but a shoulder to rely on.
Talk ,talk to them about the things that you think can prick them. Start it with your Family, the male members of your Family. Ask them, and tell them that it’s okay, it’s okay to speak. It’s okay to talk. And it’s totally okay to share their feelings and express themselves.
It’s high time to assimilate that Men are not robots. They are just good at pretending, that’s all and that’s it. Don’t take their quality of better understanding for-granted. Their health matters, their mental happiness matters. Stop judging people on the basis of gender. If it’s okay for a woman to cry and express her feelings than it’s totally okay for a man too.
So let’s make a change and ask the super”heroes” around us to express, to share their sentiments, their fondness, and let’s stop making them feel vulnerable for shedding a tear or two.
