 Though many people around the country felt so annoyed at the complete lockdown of the country, it is still a lesson for all of us. The country has been lockdown in order to prevent the spread of the pandemic covid-19. But still some people are really disturbed by this act of the govt. But don’t we have a second thought about this lockdown. May be well get some ideas, may be we’ll realize why this has been done, may be we’ll be able to understand the value of staying at home, spending time our own families. Are you still not aware why the police are restricting your movements? Why they are keeping the barricades on the streets? Why they are sending you back at home? Why they disperse the crowd? Are you still not alerted by the news of the dead by the covid-19? Are you still not aware of all these happening in our country? You should be ashamed of these, I tell you.

This Covid-19 have people put to dead more than a thousand and many are being infected. Scientists are trying to discover vaccine for Covid-19. Doctors are giving best efforts to cure the infected ones. Governments are making decision for the country to curb Covid-19. Police are restricting people’s movements and all the vehicular movements to save this world. And you are at home simply sitting and complaining about this 21-days lockdown. It really is a shame for people like you with cheap mentality. 

Learn to live by people’s decision sometimes. It is still a lesson for us. But it’s not a punishment. Just imagine that if the government did not suppressed us from moving around, vehicular movements, railways and the airways across the country, our country would be flooded with this deadly disease and would have killed people in a huge number. But because of our restrained movements, our country is still at the lowest on the list amongst the affected countries. Our families are still safe, we are still happy as before. So we better stop complaining about this lockdown just for 21 days and start spending time with the family members. So, do relinquish your past negative thoughts about this lockdown and start learning something during this lockdown. Stay Safe, Stay Strong.
