Bollywood superstar has penned a heartfelt note in which she has poured her heart out on the realizations she has had during the coronavirus emergency in our nation. As the nation went into lockdown mode, Anushka and her husband Virat Kohli, like every Indian, were told to stay at home. Anushka today uploaded a beautiful and adorable picture of the couple playing with her dog Dude during this quarantine and said ‘this time has also made us all realize what’s truly important!’
Anushka says, “Every dark cloud had a silver lining. And this time, while it may seem like the worst time and in so many ways it actually is, has also forcefully made us all stop and deal with things we might have been running away from because either we were ‘busy’ or it was convenient to say we were ‘busy’. If this time is respected for what it is, it will enable more light to shine through.”
Anushka is deeply pained seeing the sufferings of fellow countrymen. She says, “For me just having food, water, and a roof over my head and the good health of my family seems MOST important. Everything else is a bonus that I bow my head in gratitude for. But, that which we call ‘basic’ is not so basic for everyone after looking at all the people who struggle for just those few things. My prayers with them and their families. May everyone be safe and secure.”
The superstar feels that time is delivering important life lessons to us all. “This time has surely made me more reflective. This need to stay at home with your loved ones has been forced upon the entire world but there is a deep lesson for us all. There is a lesson to strive for work and life balance (I’ve valued and strived for this dearly for many years now), there is a lesson to devote more time in things that actually matter,” she says.
Anushka adds, “Today when I’m surrounded by all the blessings in my life, I just want to tell everyone how much compassion I feel for everyone who I see suffer. I want to help as many possible to the best of my abilities. I feel pride in our resilience to be better human beings. I can instinctively feel this in and around me. We will all have our individual and subjective lessons from this time and hopefully, such lessons will continuously stay with us all.”
