Greetings to all,
Let me start by a short introduction. My name is Vidhi Saraogi. I am pursuing Bachelor of Business Administration from St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata along with Graphic Designing and video editing course from the eminent institute, Arena Animation, Park Street.
As we know the destitute stage that the world is facing right now, Coronavirus (COVID-19) which is an transmissible disease, has called on the public to join a “collective national effort” and follow social distancing guidance to control the stark numbers, and control the acceleration by staying at home.
The intention of writing this blog is to tell you all what I have been doing during this lockdown period, this is my first blog writing experience. Personally, I am a procrastinator so the first thing that I have been trying to do is to be calm and focus on getting everything on track.
I have started utilising this period by connecting to a positive energy by meditating and practising yoga. My day starts with Surya namaskar where various asanas are performed followed by meditation. It helps me focus on my chores the entire day.
Besides that, is my online course where I have been learning, various softwares in graphic designing and video editing: Photoshop and Premiere pro respectively. I am very grateful to my institute, Arena Animation for providing me this platform as well as my mentor Miss Pooja in motivating me to be consistent with my work and constantly reminding me the upcoming challenges that we have to face in this field.
I have started gaining interest in some tactful games like chess and business cards. Reading has proved to be a very influential skill during this time of leisure like I have started following various doyens and reading their inspiring stories. While stepping out to kill the boredom is not a choice anymore, staying indoors and enjoying Netflix shows is the safest option.
When was the last time you used your kitchen over to bake muffins or the rolling pin to roll out a pie? If you can’t recall, maybe this is the time to put on the masterchef hat and rock.
Ending my teens in Quarantine will be a tale to tell to our forthcoming generations. As to how we saved the world we live in by staying indoors close to our family and loved ones. Reconnecting with my old friends and laughing over the same jokes is quite an entertainment itself.
Lastly, I would like to conclude by saying that looking at the bright side of any difficult situation is sometimes the answer to all the worries. How we had been abusing the world we live in and this lockdown is the perfect detox the Earth needed right now. We all are in this together and this too shall pass.
