The question that arises in most minds is, what will life be like once the lockdown is lifted? It will be a completely changed world.

By Kanan Parmar

The empty streets, clean air and unusually silent neighbourhoods, this is probably the first time that people are experiencing a lockdown of this sort.


The question that arises in most minds is, what will life be like once the lockdown is lifted? It will be a completely changed world. What seems abnormal to us now will be the new normal.

From travelling to going shopping, everything will be changed! For a long time you will notice people wearing gloves and masks because the fear would still stay. Social distancing will become a habit. The six-feet distance rule will just become a part of our lives. At public places, you’ll mostly smell sanitizers.


Post the lockdown, social distancing will become the new norm.

Here’s how the post-lockdown world will be like:

  • At Airports

    Fewer flight will be flown so that there isn’t any overcrowding. Screening and sanitisation will be compulsory. Passengers may have to report earlier, maybe 2-3 hours before the flight. Half the seats in the flight would be vacant and most probably, no meals would be served.

  • Metro Stations and Railway stations

    A face shield would be worn by the staff at metro stations. Thermal screening would be done and sanitizers would be available. There will be increased security surveillance. People will eventually stop complaining about the overcrowding in trains.

  • At Cinema Halls

    Thermal screening would be done at the entrances. Theatres would be sanitized after every show. Fewer movie tickets will be distributed as seats will have to be left vacant. Theatre will be all cashless.

  • While shopping

    There will be restrictions on trying clothes. Most stores scratch off their return and refund policy. While some retailers may only allow appointment-based entries.

The pandemic may end but the fears will revolve throughtout lifestime. Not a single soul will move out of their houses without sanitizers. People will have improved hygiene practices. Most importantly people have morally realised the importance of things they used to ignore in their daily lives.

Kashmir's natural splendour, with its beautiful valleys and towering mountains, is really unlike anywhere.

Along with the undeniable natural beauty, the Kashmir valley has developed a reputation for adventurous activities like trekking, hiking, and river rafting. Kashmir has maintained its charm, allowing us to time-travel into beautiful destinations which make one forget about the stress and worries of life. The hikes in Kashmir offer adventurers to go on a self-discovery trip through nature's lap over the mountains while taking in the breathtaking scenery that surrounds them on their journey. In addition to the hikes, there are many thrilling adventure activities, like rock climbing, rope climbing, etc. Trekking across the region of mountains and lakes will allow you to experience living in the "Paradise on Earth," and you wouldn't want to return to your regular life after that.

The following are some of the finest hiking destinations in Kashmir:

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.

Cubbon Park is a lush green garden at the heart of Bangalore

At the heart of Bangalore city, a large 300-acre space of lush greenery and heritage stands as a symbol of the city's past, present, and future. Cubbon Park is every child's favourite park, every Bangalorean's haven of fresh air, and altogether, the city's pride.

It stands testament to the past, in terms of the diversity of flora it houses. Bangalore traffic in the recent past has grown into a menace, but the stretch between MG Road and Cubbon Park is always a pleasurable place to stop and wait for the signal to turn green. The gust of wind that blows here, and the smell of mud, coupled with floral scents instantly transports citizens to Old Bangalore, where the weather was fine, and the trees loomed over roads with thick canopies that did not even allow rainwater to penetrate. Cubbon Park is also a historical site, and one of the few remaining monuments of colonial heritage in Central Bangalore. It houses many statues and among them, the most famous is that of Queen Victoria, which faces the St. Mark's Square.
