Managing expectations

27 April 2020. Monday. It was another normal day on Thursday, 23 April 2020. But it was a day when I felt the warmth of friendship, as a short email popped into my eyes.

Understanding nothingness…

12 April 2020. Sunday. The world seems to have come to a halt slowly, as economy starts to slow down, non essential businesses are closed, many countries implemented lockdown which affected most people’s way of living.
