With a complete lockdown being imposed by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ranchiites are spending the quarantine period doing some fun filled activities.
While for some it is a great opportunity to spend time with the family, for others it is the best time to pursue a hobby.For City based business man Sourabh, it is only family time. “We are three generations at home and it is great to be able to spend so much time together. Since by the time I come home from work on a regular day, my children are either busy with their homework or asleep. During the lockdown period, we are playing a lot of board games like ludo, scrabble, Pictionary and sequence.
My parents play cards for a little while in the afternoon. I am also experimenting my culinary skills and try making a dish everyday.”“We are all dealing with an extremely critical situation and should strictly follow the PM’s call of a nationwide lockdown. In today’s time, communication is very easy. Hence, it is great opportunity to not just spend time with the family but also connect with long lost friends and cousins living in different cities.
Till the time I was in school, I have always been very fond of reading, but somehow over the years am unable to find the time to do so. I intend to get back to reading a lot of books espically with so many options being available online,” said a student Neha Singh, who is pursuing mass communication in Banglaore and is presently in Ranchi- her hometown. Mahira, a class X student who goes to a leading school in Ranchi is mostly busy with online classes. “Our online classes started on Monday so I am generally busy with them from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.
Since we have our boards in 2021, a lot of worksheets and assignments are given by the teachers which take up quite a lot of time. I am very fond of baking so I am also honing my skills at it.
