We have passed a Summer,Monsoon, Autumn and currently into the Winter during last 9 months(thanks :( covid lockdown). During this period, while many information were shared on remote working, tools to help work from home, adopt to new businesses and many work related information, I also came across few Creative, Funny, Crazy,different activities taken up by people to keep up the spirit and positivity. I am sharing some here.
Terrace Concerts and Window fans
With lockdown shutting down live concerts and programs, muscians performed on thier terrace and entertained their neighbours who watched through thier windows. Then virality caught up that resulted in Zoom live, FB live concerts. (though they weren't new).
Running Marathons in the Living Room and Ultra Marathon on a Terrace
The lockdown crippled running/fitness enthusiasts in their home. But nothing stopped passionate runners.Few I know, have ran marathons in the living room and some have managed clock more than 26.6 miles on their terrace. One runner whom I know , pursued stationary run (run at same place). This gave rise to the many virtual runs.
Saree and Dhothi Challenge
I came acorss friends challenging each other to share thier photos with traditional dress like saree and dhoti. Wondered why this was actually termed as challenge ;)
I have seen many of my friends became speciality chefs, film producers (with their phones), photograpers . Few software professionals from chennai become very popular through their youtube channel “Certified Rascals”. Their channel funnily portrays work from home challenges from employee and employer perspective.
Great Family Bonding Time
With certainty that when we wake we don't have to rush to office, we started spending great real family time by having family lunch, dinner time, Family movie time etc.
What crazy, creative things you came across during the last 9 months. Love to know about
