What does today mean to me?
Monday, 12th April 2021.
It is nothing but an ordinary working day. The first day of work for this week. The difference between this Monday and my other Monday before it is today is the last day of a normal day for the Muslim colleagues before they start the first day of fasting tomorrow. There will be no Ramadhan Bazaar this year as the year before because of the Covid-19.
The celebration would not feel like a celebration much since most family members are separated by the district border. Nobody is allowed to cross the border without going through a bunch of procedure to get a letter of permission. Even if they get one, the letter probably stands for just one person. That would not make sense even for a family of three to cross the border.
Not so long ago, missing parents will only take a drive or a flight, but now it becomes one call away. Everything becomes online and you are lucky if your parents know how to use a smartphone or a computer. Those who have extra money for buying internet passes and have a good line connection at their place is lucky too.
Even though a lot has to change, now the new normal has become just normal. Some are able to let go of the past and move on, some still stuck in the past, some live with constant fear and a lot more.
Those who lost their job are now struggling to survive. Banks become a difficult business. Some who are used to the online transaction feel no different but those who have been used to the manual way are struggling to learn. The one thing that stays the same is that we are still looking at the same sky. No matter how it looks now, without the one sky above us, keeping the air for us to breathe, we might have all gone.
All the small matters like washing hand, flushing the toilet, taking bath and many more regarding hygiene are once simple things for some of us. As for now, it has become the priority.
The same goes for our life. Sometimes we did not manage to see all the good things that happen around us when there is so much bad influence around like the current Covid-19. We keep on being stress, scared and some might become ignorant of others necessity.
What does all the mumbling above related to what today meant to me?
Even with the pandemic going on, our Muslim friends have made us a buffet today. We have had a great lunch today by still following the SOP. It is one thing to be grateful for. Today, I have lunch and I also got to bring home quite a lot for my family.
