New post everyday, starting tomorrow. 21 days of positivity.
Our PM Modi has just announced a 21 day strict lockdown for the entire nation. He has been very vocal about it and made it clear in no uncertain terms, why it is needed, quoting statistics. I applaud this, because a country like ours needs it.
We aren't Singapore.
We are a much bigger Nation, with a massive population; Our situation is different. Hence this move was very much needed, so that people do not step out and understand the importance of social distancing. I was shocked to see large crowds beating drums during the janatha curfew.
In times like these it is extremely important to stay positive. Feelings of isolation, fear and panic can set in very fast. I am getting flooded with messages on my Instagram, where people are telling me they are having a hard time staying positive.
Hence I have decided to start #21daysof positivity on my blog, starting tomorrow. Those of you who have been my long term readers know what a warm, welcoming place this is. Please feel free to share the link to my blog with those who you think need it. Hit the subscribe button on the top right hand corner of this blog.
Please leave me comments in my comment box , and I will try and reply to every single one. I may not be able to reply to your mail if you are reading this in your inbox and decide to dash me a mail. Hence, please use the comment box on my blog.
Let's make this interactive, and let's be there for each other, in these difficult times.
This too shall pass my friend!
I will see you tomorrow, here.
Lots of love

I am glad I am able to help you.
Your posts and stories on Instagram are stress relievers to me. It is an opportunity given to us to observe nature from your angle every morning. It is an enthusiastic feeling to view your work out pics/ videos , family time snippets,journal sketches, messages shared by fans and fill feedback surveys.
More positivity to you & readers.
