My situation and understanding for the Coronavirus pandemic

In the current Coronavirus pandemic situation, I’m staying at home, completely isolated, and got some time to write a blog article on it!

I’m a thirty-seven years old guy having fifteen years of experience in the IT industry and currently, working in New Zealand for the past eight months. FYI, I’m not affected by the virus, yet!

I have a family in India! A lovely beautiful wife married to me for nine years and counting. A one year three months old cute son. My old lovable father and a caring mother.

Now, New Zealand is at alert level four lockdown. I’m locked down at home for the past two weeks and will stay the same for the next four weeks at least. My family is also locked down at home for the past week and they have to stay the same for the next three weeks at least. They have enough food stock for a month. So do I. Apparently, we don’t have a crisis, so far!

However, my little son, who used to go for a stroll in the morning every day and felt very joyful after coming back, is no longer able to go out for a stroll! My father, who is a teacher, couldn’t spend much time without seeing his students, now have to remain at home! I used to go to the gym and then to the office every day, loved my busy schedule, now have to work from home! I supposed to go to India to visit my family in July and I’m not sure if that will be possible anymore!

This is my situation, so far! I have a ‘hope’ of getting back to normal life within the next four or six or eight weeks. ‘Hope’, that’s all we have left, right?

Durga Puja Parikrama 2015

Last year Priyanka and I covered the North and Central Kolkata Durga Puja pandals. It is lot easier to hop those puja pandals as the area is much shorter in walking distance than south Kolkata famous pujas. In North and Central Kolkata, we covered the most famous puja pandals:

Dumdum Park, Kankurgachhi Mitali Sangha, Shribhumi, Telenga Bagan, Bagbazar Sarbojonin, Kumortuli Park, Ahiritola, Md. Ali Park, College Square, Santosh Mitra Square.

This year we planned to visit the South Kolkata pujas. So we started from Kalighat metro and covered the following puja pandals:

Badamtala Ashar Sangha, 66 Palli, Chetla Agrani, Suruchi Sangha, Palli Mangal, Jodhpur Park, Ekdalia Evergreen, Phalguni Sangha, Singhi Park Sarbojonin, Tridhara Sammilani, Maddox Square.

Beside that we visited some pujas of Palta, Barrackpur, and Salt Lake, e.g. FD Block puja.

Hypocrisy Of The Indian Society

Before anyone starts criticising this post, I would like to mention that I love my country very much and this post is not a try to disrespect or criticise India. Rather, it’s more of a fact that people (obviously they are aware of it!) should bother about. It points out the inequality or imbalance of thinking of people, especially hypocrites. This is a sarcastic take on the hypocrisy of the Indian society. This post may seem offensive to some people and damn they may be the f*****g culprit for whom is this post.

Independence day of India – Celebration at Office

We did celebrate our 68th Independence Day of India at our office. 15th August was a national holiday and our office was closed as well. But the office was decorated on 14th August. We gathered on 16th for some photo sessions. The whole office was well decorated with tri-colored Indian national flag, balloons, and ribbons.
