We all know that due to COVID19 pandemic spreading across the world, almost all the countries have suggested to keep social distancing and implemented a lockdown as well. India is one of those which has implemented lockdown to curb the spread of this virus. I am no one to say this is right or wrong? I am just going to keep some basic pointers as per my resources and as per my knowledge and then let the audience decide if this is right or wrong and is it implemented correctly?

Disclaimer: I’m being unbiased and true to myself without any intention to hurt any community or political reforms.

When the whole world has started noticing the impact of COVID19 in January we were sitting and waiting till march second week for action. All International travels were as usual and no testing was going on. In fact after lockdown also I didn’t hear a single Bollywood Celebrity name being tested though we all know most of the Bollywood stars keeps on travelling abroad and they must have been for sure.

 

mumbai lockdown

 

Govt immediately announced that from 12 o clock in the night there will be a lockdown. Did they even give a thought about those daily workers, be it rickshaw-wall, chai wall, sabzi wala who live in cities like Mumbai, Delhi to earn their livings? How and from there they will get money to survive for 21 days. People started walking in haste for 200-300kms and the result we heard that some of them died, how many like that lost their lives, none of us knows.

Essentials will be available is what the Government announced. I don’t know to be honest since these bureaucrats get everything easily on their plate they don’t understand the pain which a middle and lower middle class goes through. Hardly anything is available on the name of essentials, even if you are getting it but not sufficient. The Government was saying that don’t hoard anything I was one of them who didn’t keep anything extra and now I am thinking that people did it right because our Government just knows to give orders but when it comes to implementation they are really bad we have seen this at the time of demonetisation also. If you are trying to use some app for home delivery their slots are all full. God only knows where these essentials are available.

Everyone is praising about police personnel that they are doing a great job. They are out of their houses. Can someone tell me do they have a choice, it’s their work, I would say, Sorry people may find me a stupid human, but that’s what I think, as even I’m the one who is facing. No one is talking about the trouble and the hitting and the bribe that these people are taking these days. Understood that they are frustrated, but don’t you think people who are at home are similarly frustrated as well. Someone might be facing some medical problem or someone doesn’t have enough money, or food is not there to feed their family, or person is alone and doesn’t have a vehicle to go 3-4kms to bring stuff. The list is huge and I can keep on going as on-ground this is what is happening. As expected that people need to be at home and considerate about these people don’t you think the same thing applied to policemen as well. They are taking bribes from local sabziwala and what he is doing, increasing prices of fruits and vegetables which need to be paid by a common man. (I really can’t name them or show pictures as they are scared even to share with me, thinking that if I put something the police will come and thrash them).

 

lockdown India

 

Alcohol shops, why they can’t start? You might be thinking I love drinking. Let me tell you I hardly drink. But think about those people who need it and they are still getting it at a premium rate and whose earnings are in between middle-men bracket. Had they would have opened the shops may-be for 2-3hrs, imagine the amount of revenue the Government would get in these times. This extra revenue would be helpful in recurring funds for the daily wagers and etc.

Govt. has announced a package for the workers, I appreciate that at least they are thinking, though I have my doubts as to how much will reach to the needy. That’s a separate point of discussion. What about an auto-driver, or an ola driver or an uber driver, or a person who cooks something daily idli, poha and sell on-road or a free-lancer who works by providing his/her skills be it digital/marketing, etc. What about them? They don’t come in any sector and that is the biggest sector, how and from where they will feed themselves and their family? God knows!!!

Sex Workers/Bartenders/waiters and lots of such people no one is talking about them. Are they not humans? Whatever someone does that is his/her choice, we are no one to debate about them. Don’t they need money to survive i.e. pay their rent bills, for monthly essentials from where they will get money to survive?

 

lockdown india daily wages

 

Truck Associations/Drivers – Approx. 35k trucks are stranded on road be it different check nakas or toll posts. As driver and cleaner were forced to leave them due to sudden lockdown. Approx 35crore worth (or much more I don’t have exact numbers) of goods are out there in open available for loot by local goons. Those drivers were forced to leave trucks as it is as govt has not communicated the plan to local bodies who ultimately implement them. Despite essentials being allowed still a lot of trucks were not allowed to pass through by local authorities. (the points mentioned are based on the media reports from authentic sources).

I can keep on writing about people’s agony which every one of us is facing. Government is not only made to pass the order but also to make sure that they check at ground level if things are implemented in the fashion that they want. I can understand that in a country like India it is easy to say than do, however, I still feel that this can be implemented in a much better way than what it is right now.

I am afraid to say that we are least affected from COVID19 but will be most affected sooner not because people will die due to COVID but they will die due to administration has not taken things in hands at the right time making sure that normal life is not disrupted and all essential commodities and services were available. I heard someone saying we will die either due to COVID or due to hunger which one shall we choose?

Long-distance relationships in difficult times like these are what each of us is facing, is hard to sustain. These are such times when we are hearing a lot of things as to how to not get affected by what is going around. Most heard word these days is COVID and Be Positive. Trust me the most negative word these days is “Be Positive”. I am not going to say anything like that. Below are some of the things that can be done to keep the spark alive in your relationship.

1. Video calls – This is the best way in these times to get connected. Fix up a time and get on the call with each other. Talk about old things which bring a smile on both of your faces. May be while being on video call one person can make food and another person can suggest what all things to be put in it. Be experimental and try different things which you guys have never thought can try. This is your time guys.

 

Long distance relationship

2. Intimate Chats – This is one of the most important things which should not be missed. You should do sex or intimate chats and talk openly when we did last time what you like and what you don’t. Next time we will be doing it this way or these are the things that we should try out. Be open and try to take it to the next level when you are talking to each other by seducing the other person and whatever best you guys can do. But do talk about these things as well since this is very important in a relationship and especially in long-distance one.

 

intimate chats

 

3. Plan for Future when you meet what will you do – This something that you both can do i.e. to talk about what all things we will do when we met. May plan a future date or plan a vacation together. If date then what all things each of you would like to have. And if planning a vacation then make a bucket list and which all places you want to visit together and what all things to be done. You can get your homework done for multiple places and then when this lockdown is over you will be ready with everything and without wasting any time you can go on vacation. Sound Interesting huh!!!

4. Talk about things which are missed most – You both can create a list of things that you guys miss, it may be shopping together or going on a stroll with each other hand. Then share this list and see how many things come in common, in this way you both will come to know about each other more and can improve your relationship in the long run.

5. Clarify differences – This is the best time to clarify your differences if due to some reason you guys fought with each other then get it clarified. Put your point and another person should listen to it calmly and quietly without reacting and then let other people speak in this way both will come to know that what and why that particular thing happened. If neither of you agrees with another person then come to a common point and take it a vow that we will try to avoid such things which can create differences and lead to fights.

 

talk about differences

 

6. Talk about things which you always want to say to each other – There were always times when you want to say something to your partner but was unable to, maybe due to time constraint or due to hitch. I would suggest open your heart and speak it out. It is always good to be open in relationships as that will improve trust on each other and couples can sustain uncertainty easily

7. Laugh Out Loud thinking and teasing each other that we are not together 24 hrs – This is just for fun but yes some people are stuck with each and don’t want to. Even if you guys don’t fall in that category still you can tease each other and make fun by saying this. Whether we say it or not but it is true that we all need our space and when we don’t get that space relationship started getting heavy or become a load.

 

love your partner

 

Guys these are some of the tips that I think if used can keep us alive and our love for our partner intact. If you have any suggestions or comments please let us know. To read more relationship blogs please click here!!!

Yes, this is true – Tungnath is one of the highest Shiva temples in the world and is the highest of the five Panch Kedar temples located in the mountain range of Tunganath in Rudraprayag district, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. The Tunganath (literal meaning: Lord of the peaks) mountains form the Mandakini and Alaknanda river valleys. It is located at an altitude of 3,680 m (12,073 ft), and just below the peak of Chandrashila. The temple is assumed to be 5000 years old and is the third (Tritiya Kedar) in the pecking order of the Panch Kedars. It has a deep legend linked to the Pandavas, heroes of the Mahabharata epic as well. It is built of solid granite slabs, and also resembles the ancient temple of Bageshwar and Jageshwar. 

 

What is unique about this temple 

The distinctive feature of this beautiful attraction is its location amidst magnificent mountain ranges and spiritual importance which has been drawing millions of Hindu pilgrims from around the world in the last five years. It is a phenomenal place to visit wonderfully for the adventure lovers out there for they are going to have a great time trekking to reach the temple. It is an excellent combination of spirituality, majesty, and tranquillity thereby making it a sure-shot and an ideal getaway for all the travellers.

The architecture of Tunganath Temple 

The affluent temple is made up of stones embellished with decorations that are coated on the outside paintings of the tall towers. There is a wooden stage exactly on top of the highest dome which also has sixteen openings. The roof of the temple is formed of stone slabs and at the entrance lays a stone image of Nandi facing towards the idol of Lord Shiva. There is an image of Lord Ganesha also on the right side of the temple gate.

Inside the main chamber lies the ashtadhatu which is comprised of eight metals, idols of saint Vyas and Kala Bhairav and the followers of Lord Shiva. There are images of the Pandavas and four other Kedar shrines inside the temple as well. At the end of the trek path of Tungnath, the opening door of the temple is marked with the presence of the name ‘Tungnath’ painted atop an archway which has recently been constructed.

Although before planning to come here, make sure you inquire with your travel agent about the route, etc. Remember the temple is closed during the winter season after Diwali, and the image of the deity is moved to Mukunath which lies 19 km away from Tungnath by the temple priests during this time.

Balance is Better, it is the theme this year. Everyone is promoting it and talking about gender equality. They are saying that there should be gender equality in our society and including UN Women and the United Nations support this theme – #balanceisbetter.

International Women’s Day 2019 – IWD 2019 – Spirited Blogger

Gender equality is not just a taboo or an issue prevalent in our societies but it is now like the disease that not only impacts women but it affects us all. With not stretching on feminism as I’m not a feminist to the core I would say this day and perhaps every day let’s get together to achieve gender equality, which will create a better future for all.

International Women’s Day 2019 – IWD 2019 – Spirited Blogger

As a woman, I have struggled slice by slice all through my life and still struggling with patriarchy and gender inequality in the workplace. Quit my job for my daughter to bring her up alone. I have no helping hand to support mentally and financially and what not I have been facing, but I’m not here to write about my story, in fact, no one’s story. I urge and wish to impact the women out there to be on your own and be strong in their decisions no matter they can be terrible but if you believe in them, in reality, no one can stop you. 

International Women’s Day 2019 – IWD 2019 – Spirited Blogger

With my last year’s blog where I have given some examples and quotes of successful and strong women, I would like this year to be talking about equal rights for all humans. For me, a woman’s day is every day. Every single day the achievements and celebration of women shall be honoured and revered.

International Women’s Day is gleefully and profligately celebrated all over the world idolizing the notable contributions and achievements of women who have excelled in their corresponding domains. It is not essential that these women have to be the CEOs or owners of multinational companies; they can be an average woman making little or big contributions in their own way to the society. The agenda is to celebrate women’s achievement and raise awareness against bias in our own way. Take the action for gender equality and share equal ownership for driving gender parity on this International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day 2019 – IWD 2019 – Spirited Blogger

Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained: “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.” So make International Women’s Day your day and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women.

Gloria Steinem,
Gloria Steinem,

What I feel and wish to convey is a balanced world which is a better world. How can you help forge a more gender-balanced world?
