Dear 2020 - You taught us well!!
Not just to take care of our health but also to inculcate good hand hygiene which we as Homo Sapiens badly needed. It's well into 2021 and with the onset of many godly vaccine cure, it's safe to assume that Covid is/will eventually loose ground.
Dear 2020, you were eerie most of the times but at the same time these are (Mis) adventurous times that we live in. You reminded the world the power of Namaste (hand folding rather than hand shaking).
You were indeed extremely difficult on most of us, from major financial loss, to health loss and then ultimately emotional loss. You broke down some of the biggest corporate houses,
Yet you were unable to shake down the spirit of the common man!!.Life somehow found a way in spite of all the hardships and challenges. We remember and appreciate the essential workers.
Nifty plunged the lowest it could (7500) and on last of the year and made an all time high of 14000...since then it's been a no holds barred contest on the Dalal Street.
Yet there were Silver Linings :-
Millions of people started working from home,
Those humble Uber drivers still survived,
Those smiling barbers still survived,
Your domestic help still served you without any hesitation.
Although many people got to say bye to their near and dear ones for the last time , yet some of us were so unfortunate to not witness the last rites due to Covid funeral rules.
Still!!.. new lives were born, and many people started their new journey together.
#QuarantineBaby was trending for the better half of the year.
You were definitely very interesting and yes, we survived this pandemic. All I can say is, that "Hathi nikal gaya, lekin poonch abhi baki hai!!"...it's not yet over people.
This is not the end, but just an opportunity to grow as a person and professional/business owner.
