Hello everyone, I am Eshani Singhania. Currently I am doing a course on graphic designing alongside my Bachelor in Management Studies. I am pursuing the designing course from Arena Animation Park Street which is a renowned organization in Kolkata. In this blog I will try to explain what I’ve been doing while staying home due to a lockdown in my country.
During this global pandemic, since I have basically been cooped up in my house, I try to use my time doing other productive things. Some of them I will be writing about in this blog.
- INSTAGRAM PAGE:
I run an Instagram page on stories and poems called The InkRush(www.instagram.com/theinkrush). Since the lockdown I have been able to pay more attention to it and increase engagement on our page. Writing has always been something I use to pen my thoughts and express myself. I try to use whatever I have learned at Arena to make our page even more interesting.
In the past few years I managed to get very little time to explore things that I like doing. One of my hobbies had always been trekking but since I can’t really do that for now I tried to divert my mind to exploring other options, two of which would be calligraphy and quilling. I had learnt quilling in school for a project but loved it as an art and now I finally have the time to continue. In my father’s side of the family everybody has learnt calligraphy in their early years and hence I do too.
In the past few weeks that I have spent entirely with my family, my parents have taught me so many card and chit games that they played when they were younger. We play a lot of ludo and snakes and ladders too.
- TAKE-AWAY FROM THIS TOUGH TIME:
I have learnt a lot of things from this pandemic, most important would be that its very important to take out time for yourself and your family because even though they are here with us today, they might not be tomorrow.
Its very important to respect and let the experts do what they do best and help them in any way we can. We shouldn’t take anything for granted and be grateful for whatever we have.
Lastly, I would like to say that even though this is a really scary time for all of us, it is in our best interest to stay positive, stay at home and stay connected (only via social media though).
