What a balancing act by Nature pic.twitter.com/JUqNjsHwb8 â Piyu Nair ââï¸ ð®ð³ (@Piyu_Nair) March 22, 2020The scientists across the world are trying really hard to find a cure and meanwhile all we can do is to take preventive measures and stay indoors.
Many countries across the globe are on complete lockdown and many are on its way to adopt the same strategies in order to contain the deadly virus. Itâs time that we realise and wake up to the alarms given by the mother nature or else we are calling the âapocalypseâ upon ourselves. View the full article
The quarantine mode is on and while some of us are doing fine because the anti social life was already a way of living for many of us, most of the other people are having an extremely hard time managing their schedules.
Today is the âJanta Curfewâ day and the entire nation is observing it by staying indoors, which basically means we are all locked up with families and suddenly we donât know what to do with all this time and people around us.
So, if you fear your house will turn into a âBigg Boss ka gharâ and lectures from your mom and dad are like background music in real life for you, then here are some light comedies you can stream today with your family.
These movies are available on your OTT platform so weâve picked the one which are easily available for you: 1. Dil Chahta HaiIf you are an independent kid paying your own wifi bill and living life but still have never managed to make one Goa plan without mummy or daddy asking âkyu jaana haiâ, then try watching this today and throw in some emotional blackmail asking if you can finally go once the coronavirus scare is settled.
2. Jai Mummy Di A casual, random watch which can serve dual purpose of entertaining and throwing in a hint to your mom about your alleged affair with the neighbourhood girlfriend. *wink*
3. MubarakaanIf the quarantine has caught up to your senses and things make no sense as your sibling pick up fights and your parents aimlessly scroll on Whatsapp, then just put everyone in a room and stream this mindless comedy which will make you all laugh in chorus.
4. Carry On JattaThis is probably one âgo toâ movie which will make you laugh, no matter what kind of a day you are having. Best part is that this one also has a sequel. So watching this with mom and dad will be fun. Get some popcorn and enjoy! Do not worry about not getting the whole hang of the Punjabi dialect as the subtitles make it easy to understand.
5. Hindi MediumA family oriented social comedy meant to be watched with your family. The second part of the franchise, sadly, had to be taken off theatres for now but until then, stream this one and enjoy a light watch.
6. Krazzy TabbarIt literally translates to âcrazy familyâ so that should explain why this can be a good watch today. A funny love story with lots of situational comedy scenes thrown in.
right now: - society is divided along political lines - sudden onset of a nigh-inescapable illness - paranoia setting in rapidly - everyone relying on delivery services to avoid going out

Avoid contact, guys!
In light of recent quarantine efforts and social distancing, Death Stranding takes on a new light for me and seems more prescient than ever in its themes and symbolism. I can also better understand why some only speak through a holographic communicator & want to avoid contact. pic.twitter.com/GKC8cp37Tw â Peter Tieryas (@TieryasXu) March 14, 2020
5 months ago: What a bullshit Death Stranding plot, you just play a delivery boy in a world where everyone is locked up in the house and can't go outside what is this bullshit??
Today: pic.twitter.com/dMBHA1FF4s â Mimi Moon (@MimiMoonCosplay) March 13, 2020 In case you're wondering when was the last time Kojima predicted the future correctly, it was with a game called Metal Gear Solid 2. He more or less predicted the information age, fake news, echo chambers, and more in that game. It's only a matter time of until people realise that Death Stranding is a lot like what's happening in 2020.
Anyway, if you don't agree with this then that's totally fine. But there's no denying that there's a lot of similarities. I mean, lines like, "Oh, It's so hard to form connections when you can't shake hands," No way!
Well, it's not too late to pick up the game and play it while you're self-isolating yourself from the world. It's now available for PS4 and it's coming out this year to PC too. View the full article
The entire nation has geared up for the âJanta Curfewâ which is going on today and will continue for fourteen long hours. Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the nation to stay indoors as a preventive measure to contain the deadly coronavirus outbreak.
Supporting the initiative, many celebrities took to their social media handles and shared awareness videos urging Indians to support the cause.
Not only this, now the State Police Departments across the nation have also taken to their social media handles to create awareness messages in a creative way with a touch of humour.
Mumbai Police took to its Twitter handle saying, âSometimes, all you need to do be a superhero is to stay home.â

In the current situation, all we can do is maintain social distancing and take all the preventive measures such as washing hands and using hand sanitizers. Also, it's extremely important to strictly follow the government's instructions. View the full article
We're living in a world where probably every other person is now talking about a deadly virus outbreak. Tough times, but we'll get through this. One of the best things one can do in times like this is to self-isolate and avoid going outdoors.
Well, it looks like a lot of people around are already doing it and most of them have turned towards video games to kill their free time. Steam, one of the biggest online marketplace for video games on the PC, saw a significant spike in the number of people online.
Steam just achieved a new peak concurrent user record of 22 million, one day after reaching 21 million and six days after reaching 20 million.
Isn't it weird that people are treating working from home like a vacation? If anything, these are the times when we need to maximise productivity, given that we can easily slip into laziness. Communication hindrances are creating major work delays and decreasing efficiency. The occasional lazy days seem to have become a perpetual reality.
Push aside the laziness by following these simple yet effective tips. They will maximise your productivity in the times that you need it the most.

The irresponsibility with which Indian citizens have been dealing with the outbreak of contagious and even deadly pandemic, Coronavirus is alarming, to say the least. The WHO and our government have been constantly urging people to practice social distancing, go on a self-quarantine for 14 days if you have traveled abroad, wash hands regularly, keep a sanitizer handy and make sure that you donât ignore your symptoms.
But seems like it's still difficult for people to understand this and take a note of it in their head. If you analyze the situation in the country, people who are literate and seem to be educated are finding it hard to contain themselves and self-isolate whenever needed. Better known as 'padhe likhe gawaar' in hindi, these irresponsible citizens are actually putting the lives of millions at risk with their negligence.
View this post on InstagramHi ðð»ââï¸A post shared by (@kanik4kapoor)
People, who are suspected cases, are running away from quarantine centers and some are complaining of the isolation rooms not being up to the mark. What's worse is that people are not even taking self-isolation seriously. Needless to say, if we keep at it with this attitude, it would be next to impossible for our country to battle it. Even after knowing the fact that Coronavirus is contagious, there are some people who have taken it lightly and in fact, have put many others in danger.
Here are such instances of the 'literate and educated' acting irresponsibly.
1. Let me start by presenting the case of Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor who didnât care to self-quarantine after she came from London. According to reports, she hid her travel history from the concerned authorities. The worst part is that she has put many others in danger as she was actively attending parties in the period she should have isolated herself and just yesterday, the news broke in that she has been tested positive for Coronavirus.
View this post on InstagramHello everyone,
For the past 4 days I have had signs of flu, I got myself tested and it came positive for Covid-19.
My family and I are in complete quarantine now and following medical advice on how to move forward. Contact mapping of people I have been in touch with is underway aswell.
I was scanned at the airport as per normal procedure 10days ago when I came back home, the symptoms have developed only 4 days ago.
At this stage I would like to urge you all to practice self isolation and get tested if you have the signs.
I am feeling ok, like a normal flu and a mild fever, however we need to be sensible citizens at this time and think of all around us.
We can get through this without panic only if we listen to the experts and our local, state and central government directives.
Wishing everyone good health.
Jai Hind !

2. Another infamous case is about a senior bureaucratâs son, who traveled from London, moved around the city of Kolkata freely for good two days even after he was advised to get himself checked immediately. His mother whoâs a bureaucrat is also being accused of hiding this from the authorities. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, âYou see that symptoms have come, but you roamed about like an irresponsible person. It could infect 5,000 others, from contact with you. Er cheye obibechok kaaj aar kichhui hotey paarey na (there can be nothing more inconsiderate than this).â
Here's the chilling account of the same:
3. A few days back, we had reported how a few civilians in Nagpur made the streets their workout stations. It seems like common sense has suddenly vanished from our minds. The government has laid out strict guidelines asking people to not gather and this is why gyms were shut in the first place. Thankfully, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has announced a lockdown in the entire state, which should help in curbing such cases.
4. In another shocking news, a medical superintendent from AIIMS, Bhubaneswar also hid his sonâs travel history of flying in from London to Delhi first and then to Bhubaneswar by an Indigo flight on March 18. However, on March 19, he complained of problems in breathing and was taken to AIIMS Bhubaneswar where he was tested positive. On the very same day, the medical superintendent whoâs the nodal officer of Covid-19 in the city had a meeting with the state government officials and resident doctors are now demanding action against him for hiding the travel history of his son.
5. It's not just civilians, as even politicians seem to be taking it lightly. Reportedly, Koneru Konappa, an MLA from Telangana's ruling party, who had just returned from the US, skipped his quarantine and instead travelled in trains and even attended a social function and political gathering.
So #TRS #Sirpur MLA #konerukonappa instead of being in #quarantine, travelled by train to attend municipal council meeting in #Kaghaznagar where entire council reportedly attended; was it ignorance or callousness about public safety?@ndtv @ndtvindia #CoronavirusOutbreakindia pic.twitter.com/tnLERd3vx5 â Uma Sudhir (@umasudhir) March 20, 2020
There are many more unreported cases that are not being taken into consideration. And in such dire circumstances thereâs only one question for all these negligent people - is it a lack of compassion or sheer stupidity that's making them do this? We appeal to everyone to start taking this pandemic very seriously otherwise at this rate, we will surely enter stage 3. View the full article

The holiest land according to Islamic scripture, Meccaâs Kaabah brings in millions of pilgrims to worship each year - although in response to over 200 COVID-19 cases in Saudi Arabia, the country announced that the customary five prayers and weekly congregations would be on hold while combating the virus, halting a religious tradition that has continued through centuries.
3. St. Peterâs Square, Vatican City

Similarly, the Vatican City has seen none of its usual crowds at St. Peterâs Square, the large plaza facing St. Peterâs Basilica, the largest and perhaps most artistically significant cathedral in the world - before the devastating outbreak in Italy, the grounds would draw over 50,000 people each day.

Mumbaikars this week also found themselves pleasantly surprised - while the city usually deals with hazy, lifeless skies due to local pollution, the Coronavirus outbreak has preceded a surprising drop in pollution levels - leading to social media exploding with photos of bright blue skies, a rare occurrence in the city.

ISKCON's Krishna temples have also been hit by the virus, with the religious society choosing to turn to medical precautions and technology to keep things running.
While it has shut doors and preached the importance of social distancing, resident devotees continue to run aartis and special prayers that are being broadcasted on ISKONâs website.

One of the most recognisable landmarks in the world, the glowing neon signs of Times Square usually shine on 330,000 people each day - and are now hauntingly empty, allowing artists to take to the streets in search of creative inspiration.
8. Taj Mahal, Agra

The Taj Mahal was already in the process of limiting itâs 70,000 daily visitors to 40,000 due to safety and conservation concerns, yet the COVID-19 outbreak brought that total down to 0, with it shutting doors this Tuesday.

Part of countless songs, music videos and party references, it now seems like no one's too excited at the famous Mediterranean party destination. Bars, clubs and pubs all fold in front of the lack of tourists and outbreak concerns from locals.
10. Central London
