Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
The pandemic is now in the community transmission stage, so the best thing you can do is to prevent it. And let the health care workers do their job.
Do not socialize- not in front of your house, not at a local shop, not even if nobody is watching.
You sneezed today morning. Once. And you come to the hospital for that. You have had acne since the day you attained puberty- and this is the time you choose to get it treated. The man standing next to you could just a be Covid positive patient. You might go home contracting something much worse than what you came for.
You come to the hospital because you are ill. Accepted. Then you bring the stool that you are supposed to sit on, closer , and then put your elbow and hands over the table and then place it over your face. You are inviting trouble. Please use your presence of mind.
Do not lower your mask. Not if you meet somebody you know, not in front of the doctor (unless asked) , not while giving a TV interview. You can live for a lifetime without people knowing what your entire face looks like- not the case with covid. The mask should cover your mouth and nose. Not your chin. You are not wearing a chin guard.
If you really couldn’t afford to stay at home and happened to get out, maintain social distance. Even while standing in line for your medicines at the pharmacy. Why do you stare at us with a blank face when we ask you to stand a few feet apart? Why do we have to step out of our op every half an hour and literally tell each of you where to stand? A little self help would go a long way.
Many states are at the verge of community spread. Some have already reached there.
Which means that shortly, we won’t be able to find out where you got the infection from, and hence, since the source is unknown, a whole lot of you have the chances to get infected. There won’t be enough beds in hospitals to take you up. We might have to use wedding halls and other public places instead in the future, if your nonsense continues. If you don’t follow the norms stated by the government, the implications will be grave.
We didn’t wish for this pandemic. We hate this as much as you – probably a little more, because it keeps us away from our families.
We will come to the hospital every day. We will do what is expected of us, and a lot more. Showing your protest to the government by bad mouthing us and spitting on us is not ok.
We have been putting in our nerve and sinew into this, let it be the nursing attendants, the nursing staff, the pharmacists, the grade 1 workers, the grade 2 workers, or the doctors. The thing is, each time you protest against the government without maintaining the required social distance, each time you forget, each time you step out of the confines of your home unnecessarily, our efforts pale against your ignorance. We fail with each mistake you make. We get a little closer to losing the battle against covid.
We all are on the same team, remember? Prioritise. Please.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
