First time when I left my home to do my PG in a different place and took a room on rent sharing with one other person then there were suddenly a number of challenges like arranging Coal or Kerosine for cooking purposes, some basic utensils for cooking, one cot for sleeping, and then some other small arrangements. As the food in the hotels was not good as well as costly, the best option was to cook oneself. It took us 5-6 days to start cooking and as we had some experience already in that area, it was not a difficult job for us. Those 5-6 days we took food in a Vaishnav hotel which was supposed to be cheapest and best vegetarian food in the town for the students. As that town was an educational hub, the rooms were already earmarked for the students but we were given the rooms only up to the month of March as from April onwards up to June month the tourists came there and these rooms were converted to tourist accommodation. At least we did not have the hassle of living in the neighbourhood of the house owner as these rooms were scattered around. Today the situation is different and more facilities will be there for the students but basic thing that survive on ones own and isolation is a big issue and over and above that the corona threat is also looming and we have to take so many precautions. This is a tough phase of life but it is to be accepted and we have to struggle and pass it successfully.
