FEW MOMENTS OF MY HOSTEL DAYS(LOCKDOWN VERSION)

EVERY SITUATION COMES IN WITH A WHOLE LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES LOCKED IN IT , YOU JUST NEED TO FIND A KEY TO UNLOCK IT.

I never thought of being locked inside our hostel campus for a month when almost more than 70 % of my friends had already gone to their homes. But the urgencies of doing things and stressing out has suddenly vanished.

From the date 16/3/20 to 30/3/20 I was totally frustrated  thinking what to do, what not to do, claimed myself why is this happening to me, even I sat and cried very loudly in the corner of my room, when I heard that train and flight are cancelled. It took me  2 to 3 days to understand that nothing would move now .Then I started to overcome from that situation. I did what I usually do in times of crisis: I tell myself,don’t panic. Take deep breaths. Do a mental walk . Then  I started realizing that the things aren’t just happening to me only. Itis affecting the people globally.

In every crises you will see the worst of humanity, but you will also see the best. I choose to focus on positive vibes rather being negative , as of now that was  the best one could do.

I’ve taken this as an opportunity to do the things I haven’t  had time for, or was too stressed to prioritize. I even made a to-do list to keep me motivated. Our bodies are locked down but hopefully our minds aren’t.

COVID-19 has forced us  into a lockdown, kept apart from each other. But it has also forced us to stop and slowdown to re-evaluate the way the world works, or rather, how it doesn’t.  That day I realized everything happens for a reason. Earlier I would have complained for not getting enough time to do the things which I always wanted, then suddenly I realized this is the best time to do the things which I always wanted to do. 

Ultimately , it depends on you whether you take it as an imposition or utilize your time in the best possible for better career in future. I decided to utilize the time good God has given me to be a better and responsible human being.
