When times are changing so drastically, how do we possibly begin to understand and make sense of what is happening around us?

Just a few days ago, I had heard a TedTalk by Mr. Bill Gates, in which he talked about a human virus that could affect the entire globe leading to a World War of the new age.
With the latest COVID-19 spread all over the world who knew the whole world will be confined within the four walls. The resources and luxuries in abundance, which we were using as necessities, will be reduced to limited amounts.
There will be at least a difference between day and night. When sharing emotions and feelings could only be a display of privilege over social media, is there truly any need for a public display of affection.
When all our lives we have learnt to be a social animal, had anyone thought of a day when social distancing will be the new normal?
If this is the truth of the current times, then let me accept this whole heartedly. Because if we choose to be optimistic it feels better. Because I believe with the new day comes new strength and new ideas.
As a teacher, we have graduated from chalkboards to smart boards. From text book learnings to online references. From mere explanation through lectures to power point presentations, we have progressed. As teachers we have always been on our toes and have adapted ourselves to both the best and the worst of situations equally well.
We have been able to live up to our own expectations by now being able to progess to virtual classrooms. Yes, that’s the new! And that’s a huge progression!
In about a week’s time of the lockdown being announced Pan-India by the Government, teachers were already working on developing their online lesson plans, study materials, content for lectures, worksheets, test papers, etc. And all this without any formal training and limited resources. Some of my colleagues are making the best use of their smartphones to reach their students.
Perhaps teachers always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing. Kudos to the teachers who are my colleagues and friends.
This is a commendable feat. The teachers indeed have shown us the path with their true leadership in the times of world crisis.
As a teacher, I believe to face a problem is a chance to do your best. Victory is in having done your best. And if you’ve done your best, you’ve won.
Covi-ducation, as I would like to term this phase, (imparting education in times of COVID- 19), has challenged me and has given me the opportunity to survive the most difficult times of this catastrophe.
I am thankful to the Almighty for bestowing me with the courage and confidence to be able to impart knowledge and education to my students. I feel grateful that with the changing situation, I could continue believing in my skills.

Maleesha who calls herself ‘Princess of Slum’ through her social media captions has now landed herself a space on the cover of Forest Essentials' new campaign.
“Dream, and one day that dream will come true” as said by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, many of us have goals to accomplish and we do dream about achieving them.
A huge dream has come true for a 14-year-old girl from a Mumbai slum area, Maleesha Kharwa. She has been a simple girl with a normal family until some time ago. Today she is the face of the popular skincare brand Forest Essentials.
Kharwa was first discovered by Hollywood actor Robert Hoffman in 2020 who later created a Go Fund Me page for Maleesha.
A wonderful, nuanced short film, The Broken Table by Large Short Films delves into the complexity of Alzheimers and of relationships.
Were you ever taught to love yourself for who you are? Directed by Chintan Sarda, the short film The Broken Table (2023) (streaming on YouTube) raises this question in a profound manner. The film is a paean to positivity and enforces the idea that no matter what you are, you are always enough.
The story unfolds on an evening when Deepti (Rasika Dugal) comes to take care of Giri (Naseeruddin Shah), a man who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. She is an aspiring psychologist, and it is an opportunity for her to learn about the illness.
Giri, who was a lawyer, has forgotten that he has retired, and he tries several times to go to work. However, he has intermittent memories and reminisces about the lovely times he had with his wife. He cherishes her and is therefore offended when Deepti speaks of her as being dead.
