I painted Lord Buddha on a bottle. It’s easy you can also give it a try.
Soak the empty bottle in water for 24 hours so that the label comes out and it gets clean.
To paint your glass bottles, you can use glass paint or acrylic paint.
On the first day, I painted the face of Lord Buddha here and formed the base.
Completed the front side. I have used both acrylic and glass paints. The base is formed by glass paints.
I am creating this bamboo tree so that the bottle gives a complete theme of Lord Buddha meditating somewhere in the forest which is surrounded by bamboo, trees, Bodhi tree and lotus.
Basically, I want to paint my entire imagination on this bottle. So after the painting is completed I filled the bottle with Led light. So I bought an LED cork light which is easily available on Amazon or Flipkart.
The clock ticked 11:50 pm on December 31st, and I was eagerly waiting to welcome the new year and explore 2020.
The year, 2019 gave me all the happiness, love and blessings and now was it’s time to depart. I was eager to find out what changes will the leap year brings to my life. Though North India was freezing the winters of Bangalore is much more pleasant.
Being new to the place, I had no friends and couldn’t decide to celebrate elsewhere and landed up hosting a party for myself at my cosy place. Then I didn’t know that this 2BHK flat will be the place where I will be locked for so many months. All festivals, parties and occasions will be celebrated only here.
With the beginning of the New year, I started job hunting and growing my small business simultaneously. I didn’t know what was striding towards us and I was specific for my job opportunities turning down several positions.
In January, all my Chinese friends and students went for their Chinese new year when I heard that a virus has emanated in the country from Wuhan. My friends from China kept apprised me about the situation and kept on updating me with videos and photos. Many of them approached me asking for masks availability as there masks were out of stock everywhere. The small MSME’s were in the loss and the owners were worried and tensed. I kept on supporting them mentally when students mentioned me as their “Soul teacher”.
Every morning their day started with authorities arriving at door-step for a temperature check. The first case of CoronaVirus was reported on 30th January in Kerala from a person who returned from Wuhan, China. Soon it spread in other parts of the country.
The team of WHO paid a visit to China and after return WHO tweeted that there is no human to human transmission. Despite the fact that the doctors of China mentioned that human transmission is possible. The entire world did trust the global organisation and relied on the statement.
Meanwhile, in the United States of Colorado and Nebraska reported mysterious drones in the sky.
The movie Parasite won the Oscar in January.
The first day of the year started with bushfires in Australia. Basically, the bushfire started from September 19 till March 20.
As the year started, on 3rd January, the U.S. drone strike killed General Qassem Soleimani raised tension with Iran.
On January 27, an agreement was signed between the government of India, Bodo groups and the Assam government to redraw and rename the BTAD in Assam.
Many applicants put the enrollment on hold as they informed that their banks are closed and they will be in lockdown. I lost all my students who were about to start the new batch. They said that as soon as the virus abolishes will get back to me. By then, the SARS-like virus has already a name and it known as COVID-19.
On 11th February, in Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party won the election by securing 62 seats out of 70 at Delhi Legislative Assembly election-2020.
The cocktail of NRC+CAA didn’t go well which ultimately resulted in Delhi riots.
The cause of the riots was hate speech, confrontations, CAA protests, provocations. The riot resulted in the death of 53 people and 200+ injured.
Well, we all know that the royal and golden guest Donald Trump arrived in India on 24 February. The event was addressed as “Namaste Trump”.
I celebrated my birthday without my friends but this time it was special. However, I went for dinner on the date. Meanwhile, my blogs were performing well especially the coronavirus blogs of mine and grabbed the eyeballs of many across the world.
India sealed Chinese borders and ban all flights flying too and from China.
Time flies by, I entered the month of Holi, yes the month of March.
In no time, the virus crossed the borders and spread to the USA, Europe and a few more countries.
India initially successfully managed to rein in Coronavirus spread but all went in vain when on 3rd March, 69 years old Italian spread the virus in Rajasthan.
Most of the MNC’s declared work from home. WHO declared 2019-nCov as a pandemic.
The government was taking all safety measures like temperature check, closed all mass gathering points, religious places, restaurants, pubs and bars, all educational hubs along with tourist places were closed.
India evacuated its citizens from China, Iran, Maldives and other countries.
By 18th of March, 7447 confirmed cases were reported with 239 deaths. Many celebrities and influencers were busy educating people to wear masks and use hand sanitizers. Social media and channels broadcasted educational videos and ads to make people aware of precautions and preventative measures.
Where so much was going through along with the blogs, I was also busy writing my E-novel Nillie and had its own fanbase from India, Egypt, Iran, China and a few more countries. Besides writing I was also giving interviews parallelly and luckily I got selected in multiple companies but I was more excited to clear the round of an MNC which was about to hire me as their marketing manager. They asked me to create an assignment in the final round and submit by 26th March on which my selection will prevail.
I was working day and night, understanding the company, requirements, as the job role was new for me and being experienced in sales the domain was new for me.
On 22nd March, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation and called for 21 days complete lockdown.
We were asked to stay at home, only essential items were available. With the announcement, I went to stock ration from the nearby stores and found people were busy in panic shopping.
After returning from the market, I woke up the whole night to prepare the presentation and was about to send at the EOD.
Early morning, I received mail from the HR where she mentioned that as Government has announced locking we are keeping our hiring on hold till the economic condition improves. I was devastated and shocked but somehow I already knew that this might happen. With this, all other companies froze the hiring, and I was jobless and hopeless where I decided to give blogging a try and find other opportunities in my business.
By 25th March, the world was gasping with the shortage of ventilators, noted personalities pledged and donated to the funds. Health infrastructure, of many countries, broke down. Countries like Italy, France, and entire Europe and the United States, lost the battle against the virus. While most of the people in the world we’re in lockdown situation in China started to get normal. People returned back to their businesses and public place resumed. But that didn’t bring much happiness, for international suppliers from China as they lost many contracts, no buyers were ready to purchase their products.
WHO follows the bigger power?
The world raised questions and criticised WHO over handling the pandemic and taking a long time to declare openly about the virus.
The question was if China found that the virus is humanly transmitted then why didn’t they inform the world beforehand?
By now, the world started speculating, assuming and creating stories about the virus. It was clear by now, that China has emerged as the most powerful country in the UN and has means to silence global institutions.
Amaira Khan a 10 months old girl from South Delhi is suffering from COVID-19. Her parents kept running hither and thither to get the infant admitted in a hospital.
As in Delhi, Coronavirus is spreading like wildfire, by far, total registered and confirmed cases in Delhi are 44,688 (as per recent updates). Out of which, 16500 have recovered and 1837 already died.
Amaira Khan, the infant, started showing symptoms of pneumonia a few days back due to which parents admitted her in hospital. Doctors cured her pneumonia in a day but her COVID-19 test came positive after that the hospital released the baby and suggested the parents admit her in a hospital treating covid-19.
The infant was taken from one hospital to another to get a bed but couldn’t arrange one. At last, a hospital in South Delhi named Holy family which runs on the charitable trust as conveyed by the patient’s family got ready to admit the baby with terms and conditions.
They demanded 20,000INR per day for 45 days and the time duration being non-negotiable. The hospital has a condition of the fixed time-period which they conveyed before treating. As the parents objected because they didn’t have this large amount to spend, the hospital refused to admit the baby and was taken back to her home.
Not just Amaira is getting her treatment at home, similarly most of the people from Delhi are self-isolating themselves.
That’s why I used the word ‘registered cases’ because I recently got to know that people in Delhi are taking consultation from local clinics and family doctors, taking the medicines as suggested by them. They are also avoiding COVID-19 test just to avoid society and family from panicking.
This is actually working as people are getting cured with local medicines and homemade treatments. Still I urge everybody to consult doctor, follow protocols and do not be your own doctor.
As one of the patients from Delhi said, the doctor claimed that he had cured even a 80 years old woman.
Common Medications prescribed by doctors to Covid patients.
Doctors are advising to take hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine medicines, vitamins, Calpol, Paracetamol, multivitamins, ORS, salt-water.
These medicines are recommended by family doctors in Delhi.
But it’s not possible to store every kind of drug as the doctors are treating patients depending on case to case basis, as studies show they are using anti-clotting drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, drugs used to treat stroke. Also, you need an expert’s observation which can be done in a hospital.
To boost your immunity, doctors are advising to have amla, turmeric water or milk as well.
Try to take a protein-rich diet, involve curd, turmeric, basil leaves, beans and green vegetables.
Even in one of my blogs, I have shared precautions in details.
This is not the first case in Delhi, similar cases have been reported by far where patients are refused by the hospitals forcing them to self-treating themselves.
I will say, entire India is dealing with the same where some patients are getting cured by home remedies and medicines suggested by family doctors, condition of a few patients are getting worse and when they are hospitalized at phase 3, the patient is already suffering from hyperinflammatory phase.
Hyper inflammatory phase occurs when a hyperactivated immune system has already damaged the liver, kidney, lungs or other organs and body parts. Along with that ‘cytokine storm’ might also occur.
Cytokine storm: In this situation, the patient’s own body starts to act on its own tissues.
In this stage, a patient is kept on ventilator but then there is a lesser chance to get cured. That is why there are fewer recovery chances of ventilated patients.
As per the family doctors, phase 1 and 2 can be cured at home. But then, in some situations, as I have read, phase 2 and 3 are overlapping with each other. The pulmonary phase ( phase 2) the immune system is already highly affected by the virus and a patient can experience respiratory symptoms like shortness of breath, persistent cough and low oxygen levels. Hence, it’s my personal advice to get your tests done and try to admit in a hospital if any patient or family member is experiencing the same symptom.
By far, we don’t have a proper drug to cure COVID-19 patients. Scientists all over the world are trying to invent vaccination and are working day and night to help the world and restore it again.
In every crisis, doubt or confusion, take the higher path – the path of compassion, courage, understanding and love.
Updates: The actor’s post mortem has been conducted and the provisional reports have been submitted by the doctors at Bandra Police Station. The provisional cause of death as asphyxia due to hanging. This is really a mystery as many of us have said the same thing that he drank a juice but then we don’t know the circumstances. The entire nation is devastated and mourning while people are assuming a lot as it’s hard to believe him dying. He was successfully working but how did this happen? After his death, the media claimed that the actor was struggling with depression past six months but then when Deepika Padukone was depressed the entire world knew it. Entire Bihar is deeply saddened to lose a jewel. There are not many stars from Bihar and the state lose one pride. Sushant Singh Rajput was not just a good actor he had a brilliant academic record. When I checked his Instagram, I found that he used to share technological ideas and post which is quite different from other Bollywood stars. Most of the actors and actresses keep on posting their videos and pictures but he was indeed a man to respect. His latest post on Instagram was a picture with his mother and the caption might be a hint of his sadness but no can ever imagine he might be having suicidal thoughts. Karan Johar blamed himself for the step Sushant took. Do you think the game of nepotism killed the talented young 34 years old boy? Not just nepotism and Bollywood, so much of toxicity in people’s mind that a few of them posted their pleasure as the actor died because he raised his voice against the protest for the movie. The known actor Sushant Singh Rajput commits suicide. The dead body of Sushant lying left me with tears. Mumbai Police is investigating the reason for his suicide but they haven’t found any note yet. People have gathered Sushant Singh’s residence in Patna.
