Lockdown dance

My children are both separated from us- because of the lockdown. Its just my husband and I in our home here. My husband essentially takes all his patient calls at home and since they have cancelled all non urgent procedures, it works well. We go out only to get some food, which shops are open. We do our laundry and the cleaning ourselves.

One of my children, who is locked in in a hostel, has her own methods of having fun. Its been 7 weeks since the had regular classes( though their college is just 5 km away from their hostel)- they are not allowed to get out of the campus of their hostel.

She has been cooking in their hostel kitchen- fortunately, their century old hostel, which houses at least 250 girls has a kitchen- with an induction top cookstove, a microwave, utensils, a refrigerator and all. I lived in the same hostel during my medical course at least 33 years ago and there was no kitchen then.

After a month of cooking, she seems to have reached the limit of her recipes. Now she has taken up another hobby.

There is a dance room in the hostel too- also added since our time. So she goes there for sometime every day to dancexercise and get rid of excess energy.

Recently she had other girls join her and they then decided to take their dancing skills out to the open. Below are a few pictures of their dances – costumes and all.

    1. These girls are always finding some ways to keep doing something other than studies- I admire them because I am sure each of them is missing their parents at this time but they are willing to stay in place without fretting.


  1. Well, they were not beating the heat this time of year, but have found some amusement in their situation – as the old expression goes: “if life gives you lemons, make lemons from lemonade!”


    1. I think the lemonade phrase is just correct for this COVID situation- most of us have been handed lemons- though some were more rotten than others, too bad even for lemonade- yet, we manage.

      1. Yes – it is bad in Michigan and the more she enforces laws, the more pushback she gets. I am happy that she is looking out for the people, not wanting to open up the economy too soon, but many many people are vocal about their feelings, likening her to a dictator.
