I was not able to attend them because of a small incident which I would like to tell here. On the 9th of this September, I was declared Covid positive. It was a mild thing and am now on home isolation.

I am in a separate room and there is a separate bathroom here. Everyday, the food is kept at doorstep and I take it. I am remembering my hostel days. Everything is absolutely fine. The isolation is going to be up to the 22nd of September. After 23rd, I am out. I am thoroughly enjoying my time. I thank all the people who have been trying to reach me. All your wishes have reached me. Doctors are doing their job, medicines are doing its job, and when they can do, why can’t we? What I want to tell is Covid is a pandemic and its a very serious thing. One has to be very very careful. The masks and social distancing should definitely be taken into practice. I took all that and in spite of that, it has attacked me and I don’t know how. 

Man has always triumphed over the virus in the history of mankind. I am coming out of this after 22nd. Thank you very much.
