Lockdown Diaries!

Are you missing your friends, and joys of the community? From Last one month we are in lock-down, which is mandatory. Thankfully, I am with my Husband and my daughter. This year my kid’s School closed early so, keeping the little one busy itself is great task. Before lock-down, I had two maids and one cook. Life was easy but all of sudden this Covid-19 shocked the World and everything turned upside-down. I have given paid leave to my maids and frankly speaking the first one week was really difficult as I was getting adapted to a new routine. Compared to so many, I feel I am fortunate, with no Job to worry about – So for me, I have to only take care of my daughter and my household work. My Husband is working from home & Yes Kyaraa disturbs him a lot so, I try to keep her busy with extra curricular activities.

As Life is not active as before & Social-Distancing is the only option to combat Corona-virus. This doesn’t bring us to an end, We can do different activities inside our homes and so, we decided not to lose hope and keep our-selves busy and active. We have to constantly keep ourselves in good mood. I told Kyaraa about this disease, but her innocent mind think it’s some kind of a Dinosaur. So, Please do listen to her πŸ™‚

I try to keep myself and Kyaraa as busy as possible. We Learned so many new dishes- thanks to many bloggers who share recipes online. I had never thought that I will try my hands on street-food before. So, this idea turned out positive for me. Check out some of them on my Instagram posts:

Kyaraa loves dancing, painting, baking and playing. I would like to share with you all, how this little one kept herself busy for the last one month. Do check out her You-tube channel link below. Maybe, this will give you some idea on how to keep your kids busy and stay positive in these difficult times.

Please Do Subscribe!

Also, wanted to share that My father has just developed a new passion for photography during these times which, I have shared in my last few posts. Besides, cooking and taking care of Kyaraa I am also, reading and watching movies. This is how we keep our selves busy in hope that everything will get well soon in coming days.

On the other hand an insight that I would like to share is that I also, observed something new – I must say NATURE has taken a turn-around. In the last one month people have seen peacocks on the road as well as some have seen Dolphins in Mumbai at the Marine-drive. I think now they feel free to come out as we are all inside our homes. I think we Humans had forgotten that they also do exist. Sometimes, I feel that this lock-down will teach us the new way of life. Mother-Earth is breathing and she wants all of us to stay at homes and think where mankind has gone wrong and come out being more humble & kind to each other. So, let’s Stay positive and be hopeful. #StayStrong #StaySafe.

Thanks for reading ❀️ ,

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. ~Winston Churchill I believe that life is beautiful,one should enjoy it and stay positive. This blog is about being positive and curious about mystery of mankind. Someone truly said expand your thoughts and you will enlarge your world. Follow this blog to see positive side of every aspect. It's about encouraging people to try out new pattern of thinking. Little about myself, With Ten years of experience as Television Producer, I started my career as an independent documentary filmmaker...I worked in television industry for decade....took break from industry when I delivered baby in 2015. One fine day I thought to write letter to my husband in which I wrote him how I see life....in the evening when he came home and instead of discussing letter part he asked me to start writing...as he thought I can express myself more in writing rather then as person. I thought blogging is out of box idea... The truth is, cheesy as it sounds, the internet has changed our lives. And now I can share my thoughts with whole world :)

  1. Kyaraa is a bundle of creativity πŸ™‚ I enjoyed watching her videos and her dino corona bit. Kids are so imaginative and one should give them that space to express, learn and grow.

    The lockdown has revealed newer sides of everyone. Am sure many are ready for the master chef challenge. You did manage to prepare some interesting bites Anjali.

    I think this ‘stay at home’ bit was necessary for a lot of healing and discovering …….

    1. Thank you so much Zara and thank you for visiting my site. I am sorry I am trying to open your page but can’t find. Can you please send me a link. Thank you πŸ˜‡β€οΈπŸ™.


  5. Dear Anjali, thank you so much! I really enjoyed watching and reading this. And – what a wonderful way to cheer us up, and to keep busy! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ And your daughter, Kyaraa, is absolutely amazing! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    You know, I got an idea while looking at her art drawings. They are so inspiring! Suddenly a fairytale began to take form in my thoughts… Wouldn’t it be great to take one of her drawings, and some drawings of other children I would like to involve in this as well, and use them as a part of the story? πŸ™‚

    In the story, the children will be working together to save the heroine. And to do so, they will have to make some more drawings, on paper, from a specific theme – and cut them out. The figures will be an important part of the story… πŸ™‚

    I have even begun on a musical composition for the story! I feel very inspired – and I think it will be much fun for all of us! πŸ™‚ I really do hope you and Kyaraa will participate?

    But please – I don’t know how much time it will take until I am finished with it though. It may be more than a week or two, so let’s not tell Kyaraa quite yet, OK?

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Anjali, for you and your loved ones! Healthy and creative – and much fun! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    PS: I recommended LightZone the other day, for photo editing. But PerfectlyClear (https://eyeq.photos/perfectlyclear) is also very good – and much easier to learn! They have a 21 day free trial period, if you want to test it out. πŸ™‚

      1. In my writing, I visualized the Coronavirus as a dinosaur – a thanatotheristes- a new variety of T-REX that was discovered in the Canadian province of Alberta 10 years ago.

        A sort of spectral ghostly thanatotheristes.
