Coronavirus has gripped the whole world in its fear and our newsfeed these days are filled with Coronavirus updates. The new cases are rising,the death tolls are increasing,vicious conspiracy theories are surfacing and amidst everything humankind is washing hands not just to wash off the sins collected over the years by destroying nature but also to keep away from the virus. Quarantine is perhaps the most popular word in google after Coronavirus ofcourse. In the wake of this pandemic, Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi addressed the entire nation on March 19, 2020, with an appeal to stay safe at home and be a responsible citizen during this Catastrophe . He appealed to the citizens of this nation to observe Janata Curfew on Sunday that is March 22, 2020. Lets just understand some facts straight.
What is Janta Curfew?
While many people argue that Prime Minister Modi has given a very simplistic speech but actually he has given one most important message of current times in awake of Coronavirus pandemic. He emphasised on social distancing which means we don’t have to mingle with people (perhaps the most entertaining work for some folks just sometimes back) to stop the free spread of the virus and take the responsibility to help curb the spread of this disease as individuals. He has also appealed citizens of India to stay inside their houses on 22nd March 2020 observed as Janta curfew. It is also a test run for social distancing to contain the spread of the virus across the country. There is also a possibility of extending this curfew for coronavirus more than just a day in order to contain its spread in the country.
What can we do about Janta Curfew?
Well, workaholics might have a tough day staying inside the house but nobody can deny the importance of this self imposed curfew in order to understand the importance of determination and restraint through social distancing. Instead of staying lazy with dull low morale or taking this day as a dull vacation you can simply try to utilise this one day by indulging in some productive work or spend quality time with your family. You can also indulge yourself into fulfilling your hobby and work upon your soul and heart. Here, we help you observing Janta Curfew by providing the list of things you can do throughout the day.
Yoga/Meditation to kick start
Why not start your day with Yoga or meditation? Work upon your inner peace and powers especially at such times of despair. Apart from boasting about it to your work buddies how you utilised your Janta curfew doing Yoga you can also start one good day on a positive note with full of happy infectious vibes.
Cook and hook
Husbands wives fathers or mothers who hardly get time to cook for their loving family must try their hands in cooking on Janta curfew. You can bake with your children,serve breakfast to your wife in bed or just prepare for a lovely candlelight dinner as couple on janta curfew while sipping your coffee watching news shouting loud and clear about Coronavirus latest update later. Trust me this simple attempt is going to make Janta curfew memorable for years to your folks.
Be a Gardening guru
If you boast about owning a garden how about indulging into family gardening and spend a day close to nature and pay your gratitudes to mother earth that it has not tried to wipe out our existence in spite of all the stupid acts of mankind to encroach every single space of it,at least yet. Just giving a warning . Just don’t forget to wash your hands with dettol or any available soap or sanitizer later. Better yet wear gloves.
A family movie
Well,kids of today would hardly ever know the magical times of gathering before one tiny Tv along with the family and watching one whole serial or movie with utmost delight. Netflix,Amazon prime and numerous digital service providers have snatched away the romance but the children of 90s surely know the fun. How about reviving 90s all over again even for one day? Find that one movie which you can watch with your whole family,gather before the TV ,cook food or snacks before hand and enjoy the company of loved ones old style.
Evening can certainly be enjoyed reading good books together and discussing their characters with your children. you can also play some games around books. It will truly be soulful to read one good book on Janta Curfew and relishing it the next day. Books not only enrich our mind but also make you feel content.
Board game fun
Ludo,business, snake and ladder, chess and paper games the lost delights of today’s times can certainly make a come back and certainly bring out not just the simplicity but also nostalgia in you.
High tea at home
You might have attended many high teas in your social circle but now that social distancing is new IT how about organising a high tea at your place. Bring out your finest of linen,indulge your kids into decorating the house or cleaning the plates. Arrange the table and sit together for family high tea.
Pray for peace
And at last when the day ends try to take a good sleep away from work tensions and toxic people at the comforts of your lovely house praying that once you will open your eyes God will reset the buttons and bring everything back to normal. Well,at least we can hope so. Be united be strong.
Wish you all a very constructive Janta curfew and I hope you are following all the guidelines issued by government. Also dont forget to wash our hands,keep sanitation and most importantly be kind and compassionate towards people,society,nation and nature alike.
