The most important and valuable skillset a human needs is kindness. Can you imagine a world where all of us are kind to each other? What else would we need? Money? No. The once who have will give the ones who don't. Happiness? The ones who are happy will never let others be sad. Good Health? The healthy will help the unhealthy. Then why is kindness so underrated? Why isn't it taught in schools and universities? I believe kindness needs to be given more focus and here is how I think we can start.
First Sunday of August is Sister's Day. I have written a lot about my baby sister over the years and they have all been about our childhood and the love we shared. But this post is about a rough space our relationship traversed through during Covid-19. It took a while for us to wrap our heads around the changes my sister had gone through. While the Coronavirus Pandemic stretched on and on, we went through a roller-coaster ride of quarrels, emotions, conversation and growth and here are five things I am realizing now that I learnt from her:
The Story of Star Crossed Lovers. Sufiyum Sujathayam deserves more attention than it is currently receiving. The story, the cinematography, the acting, and the music are all beautiful. When you look at the closure it gets, you realize that the makers have brought something different on the table. It definitely had more potential, but the lack of utilizing it doesn’t make it flawed in any manner. Here is why you should watch Sufiyum sujathayum on Amazon Prime.
It isn't about social media alone. If you are spending too much time on an App without getting any value from it, it is high time that you ask if it is really worth your time. If it isn't, take a ten day detox and evaluate how you could spend your time more productively.
Jayaraj and Bennicks were taken into custody on 19th July in Thoothukkudy and by 23rd early morning they died. The FIR read that they died due to fever. However with further investigation, four officers have been arrested and charged with brutal violence, sexual assault murder. Read about the details of the case, the flaws in the judicial system, actions taken by the government and how we as individuals should know if a similar situation arises to us.

If you have wanted to make positive changes in lifestyle with respect to sustainability, this book is for you. It is a breezy read with mostly two-page chapters. I’d definitely recommend for a quick informative read.
Epidemics and Pandemics aren't happening for the first time. We never remember any of them by the changes they brought about. Let Covid-19/Coronavirus change that narrative. Let this pandemic be known for moulding a generation of compassionate people who decided to change their lifestyles for the better. They learnt new skills, their eyes sparkled with kindness and they were the first of the many generations that came later, that looked inward for answers.
I am trying to be happy about the things I do for my pleasure and to not judge myself for just being. So before I go any further, I'd like to let you, my readers, know that if you haven't created or learnt anything during the lock-down, it is okay. You only have to make sure that you are content and happy. Here are some satisfying things I have been doing during the lock-down. The aim is to create, improve lifestyle and feel good about all of it:
Today, I spent a lot of time reading real life stories of last moments of people who died from Covid-19. When I began writing about 'The Life in the Time of coronavirus', this was one aspect I wanted to cover. Because if we have to understand and appreciate life, we need to take a glimpse at death, at least once in a while. The stories I am about to tell you - I insist that you read them - will definitely make you appreciate the people in your lives. And when you do, please give them a call and tell them that you love them.
The Covid-19 Virus is still like an out of syllabus exam paper given to the world. The threat isn't a bomb planted in unknown locations or enemy soldiers but one without a face whose nature is still unclear. We must have only understood a small percentage of how this virus works which is partly why a remedy hasn't been found yet and with time we are still picking up bits and pieces of how the virus works.
During Lock-down, either of the two have caused you pain; being with your loved ones or being away from them. Staying indoors with a bunch of people, with no escape has its own boons and banes. In this post, I have brushed on 6 Vital elements of our lives that contribute to 95% of our mental and physical well-being. For many of us, the Lock-down was a test of our connection with these elements. If you haven't considered this before, you may consider improving all or any of these aspects during the remainder of the lock-down
"It may sound insensitive when I tell you that I am enjoying my life. Like everyone else, I too am concerned about the virus engulfing the world, taking too many lives. But it's high time we stop being miserable. We need to accept what comes our way with grace."
Exercise, mental well being, time pass, brushing up skills, improving knowledge; we have covered so many useful Apps in this post and so trying out even one from this list will benefit you in one way or the other.
The brawl over toilet paper and supermarkets emptying out had us wondering where we were all heading. But there were some beautiful acts of kindness and sacrifice that kept people together, sane and alive during the Coronavirus pandemic. I wouldn't be doing justice to this series if I don't put the stories of these wonderful souls out there. Here are some heart warming Stories of Kindness and Sacrifice during Covid-19
