The pandemic has come as a sudden disruption for the entire planet and our city is no different. Times have been hard and people have had to adjust to the new normal by being confined to homes. The second wave of the corona has only made matters worse. Anxiety, depression, and a sense of helplessness have all added to the common woes being faced by people. But there has been a positive side to the story, despite all the hardships, fears, and broken dreams.

For some, the pandemic has provided a fresh lease of life as they got all the time in the world to work on their hobbies or learn new ones. While some took to music, others took to painting and a vast majority took to cooking and baking to keep their minds off the pandemic.

The year 2020 was hell for Deepika, who had graduated two years ago. She had big plans to get her career rolling, but all her plans went kaput. All anxious and depressed, she took to poster painting, cooking, and baking. This helped calm her nerves and she is a pro now.Smita, a 47-year-old homemaker has her interesting story during the new normal. She started hand-painting sarees, dupattas, and bags during this time and even made sales. She says it was a win-win situation for her and she shares that all this wouldn’t have been possible if everything was normal.While some have gone back to reading books, some have taken to the internet to learn new skills. Many others have taken to the yoga and other forms of exercise to stay healthy and fit while being locked down in their homes. A few others have started recycling things to pass time.According to psychologist Dr. Diana Monteiro, having is a hobby is a healthy sign and she calls upon everyone to take up something or anything that interests them and keeps them occupied.
