Telugu-Hindi actress Adah Sharma is making the best of the lockdown.
She says she is trying to keep it as normal as possible. “I’m spending time doing the same things that I did before the lockdown. But I have more time for the things that I like doing. I played the piano, danced, trained before. So if I had to say one hour for piano now I have two. And I can dance for as long as I like. There is no time pressure on my schedules right now.”
Adah is not in the mood to give out gyan on how to conduct one’s life during the lockdown. “ I feel it is a different experience for everyone. It is a difficult time for all. For some, it is more difficult than others. For those reading this you are probably the more fortunate ones who have a phone so be grateful.”
Still, there must be some advice that Adah wants to give to her fans? “If you insist, my advice would be whatever you are doing, even if you are watching a show, or clipping your nails at that time do just that one thing. Train your mind to focus and you will be happiest.”
Adah confesses she is spending a lot of time on cooking, eating and sleeping. “I anyway eat a lot, lockdown or no lockdown! Now it’s mostly my own cooking which isn’t great but I still eat a lot. I sleep seven hours anyway so I guess sleeping and eating hasn’t changed.”
Adah is not perturbed by social distancing. “Pandemic or no pandemic I was anyways someone who didn’t really interact much with people. Socializing is not something I am very comfortable with.”
The one takeaway lesson from the pandemic for Adah? “I hope we all get out of this as kinder human beings. There is something to learn from the virus. It doesn’t discriminate, it treats everyone equally, doesn’t matter which cast or race, gender .”
