Once again, the Kharghar police had to use the public address system to remind people of section 144 placed in the state to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. A significant number of the public decided to leave their homes on Tuesday morning and were seen standing in a line without having to maintain a gap of three feet in order to prevent social interaction.

“We have been standing in the queue since morning, as we learned that there won’t be the supply of vegetables and fruits, starting Wednesday. We came to Reliance Fresh at Sector 19 and were greeted by a long queue. While they ensured that only four to five people entered the shop at a times, the queue outside was only becoming longer and longer,” said Rajiv Tyagi, a local resident.

Interestingly, the scene was very similar at almost every corner of the street, where grocery stores and dairy shops were open apart from chemistry stores. The buzzing Kharghar, especially around ISKCON and Central Park, which usually have a large number of morning walkers and joggers today, had a grim look, with barely a few people who didn’t want to miss their routine.

“Central Park has been shut for last almost a week and will remain shut for the public until March 31. We used to walk around the boundary of Central Park, but many elderly people have stopped coming for even their morning walks. Around seven to eight public gardens are locked, due to which even people are not gathering for their laughter and yoga sessions,” said Pradeep Inamdar (65), a resident of Sector 19, who is also Vice President of Sector 19 Residents Association and ALM.

Social distancing has become so important because of COVID-19 due to which companies have ordered all employees to work from home, and hence many people trying to avoid things being boring are sharing ways to keep yourself busy during this phase.
Mahindra Chairperson, Anand Mahindra, too took to social media to show how he is handling his self-imposed quarantine. His method was to give the different rooms and pieces inside his house the names of Metro stations. The map titled ‘Commuting in Corona times’ is quite similar to any metro map which can be downloaded from the net or seen on M-indicator.
His tweet reads ‘This is spot on. I’ve given metro names to the rooms in my house. The living room is the Downtown Station, the dining room is Crawford Market, etc’ Every location and article in the house is connected on the map with different colored lines drawn on it.

As soon as he posted it, Twitter loved it and many people totally agreed with him and tried to adopt the method too. Having such innovative ideas make this phase seem not so bad and also ends it on a positive note. In the end, however, everyone should try to stay indoors as much as possible and follow the map if possible. Who knows, you might even enjoy your time at home.

A world stalked by an eerie silence instantly came alive at 5 p.m. The sounds of clapping and tapping utensils rang out of residential neighborhoods, houses, and high-rise, enhancing the gloomy mood of Sunday.

Responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s appeals, people across the country came out of their homes and balconies, clapping, beating utensils and even ringing bells as a show of solidarity with health officials and emergency workers who have operated tirelessly in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Earlier, PM Modi rang a reminder to citizens. “Do remember, 5 PM this evening for 5 minutes… Be on your terraces, balconies or windows to express gratitude to all those who are working 24/7 so that our nation becomes free from COVID-19. #JantaCurfew,” he tweeted.

The Indians, who avoided venturing out — as Modi demanded in a TV address on Thursday— were fast to turn to social media. Videos and photographs of people, including kids, clapping and clapping utensils on their balconies and terraces began making rounds.
