“Man is a social animal”, an important aspect of the human race, unfortunately for time being this aspect does not hold good anymore. Thanks to a deadly virus named COVID 19, that has brought the entire world to its knees. Forget nuclear war, this virus is so dangerous that it does not discriminate between the rich or the poor. Originated in Wuhan, now it has spread its tentacles all across the world. In order to contain the spread of this virus, governments across nations had to enforce lockdown of citizens in their own homes. Industries have come to a grinding halt, economies are staring towards an impending recession, citizens are anticipating pay cuts and job cuts, and the full impact will hit each one of us once the lockdown period is over. But till then , it is important for us to maintain our composure, sitting dormant within the four walls for one’s house can be nerve wracking as physical movement is restricted , social gatherings are barred , so the best way to utilize this downtime is to by making optimum utilization of technology available at our disposal.
