What’s good about these bad times?

In a world with increasing screen-time, distance while socializing and not to forget the saddening fatalities – it is a little hard to give ourselves the better-perspective lenses. It is written clear in the words of “hard times” that there’s nothing so good about it to live and thrive on. Does this mean we sit back and feel prey to these times? When many around us want to rain insane balls and shower their misery on the collective nature of humanity – I want to talk about these “better-perspective” lenses I found in my cupboard, my shelves and the never ending absence of wind in a room.

Let’s begin with opening the windows. Now, we have wind.


Look for old stuff in your closet or mostly your mom’s closet. You get to live, literally, your childhood in a time where everything seems so uncertain. Past has happened, for sure. And, if you haven’t had a traumatic childhood where the dad killed your Jewish friends, go ahead and rejoice those sweet memories. Everyone has at least one according to Stephen Hitler.

This is one of the book’s last pages from my 11th Class

Just in case you realise you had a childhood full of boredom. Prove yourself wrong now.


End is an hoax to the list of activities one can do at home. From drawing those mountains to capturing those clouds on your phone. We are, ones with digital devices, the luxurious group of people in this world right now with the situation given at hand. Even if it means tiring your eyes while just watching a lot of screen – it looks far better than going out and risking our lives with a novel disease.

My house, from an angle

Here’s a list of activities you can do or already do at home. They are tough.

  1. Reading
  2. Drawing
  3. Watching Netflix
  4. Drinking tonnes of water
  5. Photography and just anything involving “busy”


It’s not that easy to find new elements to shoot at one place repeatedly. So, that’s really the only kind of creative drill you might want yourself to go through to push up your game. Once there’s nothing to shoot, you can be sure that it’s the saturation we all have already reached. If you are an artist I’d suggest you create. And, creating something new must not be a burden at all.

I don’t have high-end cameras or even the low-end gears for photography. Literally, everything I have is a brick with lenses. Two of them. I shot these photos on my Nokia 6.1 Plus, trying to achieve the canvas after painting:

Of all, it’s completely okay if you fail at finding any better-perspective lenses for yourself. Because, if it were not hard you’d have found it even without this quarantine.

So, light up and fly like it’s your time!
