Oh god! When will this lockdown end? I just can’t be at home anymore now.

Such are our reactions during this time of house arrest wherein we are trapped. If you move out there is the fear of police and staying inside feels like gloom all around. Everyone at home is at the same pace irrespective of the age gap. The adrenaline rush is the same for all, to go out, meet people, and get back to the pavilion. We are all beating about the bush in order to get something to talk about.

Once a friend told me talking inflow brings up new and interesting things to talk about. But now even our mouth is tired talking and brain stuck with a single thought that when will this get over and we would live a normal life.

To make it more adventurous let the cat out of the bag and boom- Our world would change completely after this gets over and it will be a new normal for us but not the same. Hoping things to get back to normal is our way to divert our mind from this change because we fear changes but it is the rule of nature. Home is where our story begins and getting stuck at the same place is like holding the climax thinking of a dynamic ending.
