Even this challenging situation would ease
But these days I am hesitating a little bit. Whomever we contact, we are hearing some type of bad news. This is making us a little worried. Even then I am contacting my friends and close relatives once in a while. We are hearing a lot of negative news also. But if we contact such people they may get some strength with our talk. So we can continue talking but by hearing that news we should not become nervous which is not good. But I feel when we talk to them we should not convey them more negative news which will work on their health also. So we should be selective in passing on the information.
Earlier we were only able to talk on the phone, but with the development of technology, now when we can talk to our loved ones through video calls, then people should take advantage of this feature. The author has rightly said that stay connected with your relatives, friends, and special people as much as possible. Many people have lost a lot in this epidemic, many people have started giving up and some are getting stressed. In such a situation, talking to them for some time will make their and our minds light.
Knowledge is power.
In my area we do not stay inside our doors. We are see simply warned by the local administration to wear a mask and keep distancing and come out of home when it is necessary, market is also opened but partially. So it is not a big problem to visit our relatives and friends and they may visit us too but since everybody seems to be scared of coronavirus, nobody knows who is corona positive. Many people have died of coronavirus and only a few people besides family members and close relatives have participated in last rituals.
So in this situation when people doubt each other of being corona positive , so it is better to stay away from each other and should keep in touch through phone.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
So it is imperative that we keep contacting our relatives, friends and well wishers reasonably frequently. It is also needed that we contact and communicate with those who may feel comfortable and relieved on our talking to them.
WhatsApp, Facebook, Zoom. Google-meet etc are helping people in these difficult days to keep in touch and 'reach'.
