April A2Z Challenge – Theme Reveal

Life in the Time of Coronavirus

Hola Everybody!

This year, I am participating in the April A2Z Challenge along with Blogchatter.

For those of you who are here for the first time, I am Ranjini, a Chartered Accountant from Kerala, working in Bangalore. I have been blogging since 2010. If you like my writings, you can also follow me on Instagram – afew.handpickedthings where I write more frequently.

Before I go into the details of the April A2Z Challenge, here are a couple of things you need to know:

  1. I am blogging after Oh so long! And I thought this April A2Z Challenge would be an opportunity to get back into blogging and connect with my old blog buddies and make some new ones.
  2. This is the first time I’m participating in the A2Z Challenge. And while I know that it’s not going to be easy, I’m bent upon seeing this through.

What is A2Z Challenge?

Every day of April (Except Sundays), I will be posting one article starting with each letter of the Alphabet for 26 days. So I’ll start with an article whose title begins with A on 1st April, B on 2nd April and so on until 30th April when the title would begin with Z. If you enter your email address on the right side of this page, you’ll get a mail whenever I publish a post.


Life in the Time of Coronavirus

There! No drum rolls, no trumpets, just some blatant theme reveal. Ever since Coronavirus wreaked havoc in our lives, I decided that I wanted to write about how human life has been disrupted by this disease. It would be akin to a diary entry of how we humans are surviving this pandemic; on a personal level, as a community, and as responsible citizens.

Maybe ten years down the lane, we’d look back in awe at how we fought this together.

I’m looking forwarded to making this compilation, as crisp and interesting as possible. I hope each of you coming to this blog of mine would come back for more. Until then, stay safe, stay at home, wash your hands, be kind and make good use of this curfew time.

    This would be a good way of chronicling these hard times. For posterity too. Good luck!

      I think so too. Maybe 10 years later, we ourselves would wonder how we lived through these times.

    This is going to be a super fun read, I can already imagine it. All the best.

      I do really hope it will. I’m trying to make a mixture of some personal anecdotes while depicting how the pandemic wreaked havoc as well as brought out some beautiful aspects in the world.

    Very relevant topic. (Also, one that I almost ended up choosing myself for this challenge 😉 ) Looking forward to reading your posts. Stay safe. All the best. 🙂
