2020 might not be anything like we expected it to be but it also an year that taught us some important lessons. Nothing is permanent and your entire life can change drastically in the blink of an eye.
We are halfway through 2020. This year has been nothing but tragic. Life is working diligently to hit us hard. With so many things happening at the same time, life has completely battered us. There is no doubt that we are emotionally, physically and mentally exhausted. Every time we start to think it is going to get over, bam! It gives us a bummer. It is like there is no stopping it and it is trying to teach us something: that nothing is permanent. Live in the moment and be grateful.
Firstly, the wave of Corona virus hit the millions around the world. The situation just keeps on exacerbating as it made its way to every country and every city. It led people to the ventilators, fighting and battling with the disease which is unknown to cure. Doctors, scientists and professionals around the world are still not able to find the cure of it. What can be more deadly than this that we have to accept that this virus has become a part of our lives? Wearing masks and saying hello from a far has become a new norm like some dystopian Hollywood movie that we used to enjoy watching but never imagined it might become reality.
Further, the havoc that it has created in the lives of poor migrants, it is delirious to watch. Every day, the news is flashed on television and newspaper about families being starved to death. People walking on the foot to cover more than 1000 kilometres to reach their destination in this scorching heat with nothing in hand to survive. We are losing children, families and people of the country which is an irreplaceable loss. Irrefutably, this year is just being mean to us.
Moreover, people are losing jobs as there is no work and thus there is no cash-flow. The life has put us all in a reverse gear and we are back two-three years from where we have to start all over again. This year has been a great lesson for all of us that nothing is permanent. Not even the bad times.
We are yet to cover the second half of the year. Let’s just hope the world is changed back to the normal like it changed abruptly from vivid colors to black and white. Let us all be grateful for what we have and pray that it gets over soon.

These friends keep it real by acknowledging that they’ve had hundreds of issues and fights over the years. But they’ve ridden it all together and here they are, their friendship (and the fights) still intact and going strong.
I’d gone on a digital kaffeine detox and it’s been quite a while since I watched the Koffee with Karan 7 episodes.
But ever since I’d read the news that Gauri Khan may be one of the guests of the show, I knew I didn’t want to miss this episode. Even though there would be no Shah Rukh Khan, it didn’t matter.
In fact Gauri Khan, queen bee of all Bollywood wives, is enough on her own! And when there are buddies Maheep Kapoor and Bhavana Pandey, do we need anyone else?
At the age of 60, my mother started earning her own money. It instilled a sense of pride and confidence in her that I could never see earlier.
Most of us grow up idolizing our mothers. I wasn’t an exception, either. As far as I can remember, I have always been more attached to my mother than my father.
Ma, who never had anyone to support her after marriage, worked extremely hard to bring me up.
Despite coming from a remote village in Bangladesh, she was far-sighted enough to realize the importance of English and made sure that I got admitted in a reputed English-medium school.
