Being a post-millennial from the state of Assam, the happenings i have seen in my starting adulthood years will last a lifetime taking place in just a span of a few months. Luckily or unluckily it has given me a lot of experience to change my outlook on life. Starting from the (CAB) protests in December (which unluckily became CAA ) to COVID-19 lock-down this month. During Citizenship Amendment Bill protests we were urged to come outdoors to join the crowd but now during Corona Virus Outbreak we have been asked to do the opposite. Both led to the disruption of day to day life, closing of schools, colleges ,offices etc. These have forced us to cope up with the present situation in such a manner that we were previously not accustomed by. Curfew was levied on us on both the scenarios and we had to stay home day in and day out. With new Restaurants, Malls, Cafes, Movie Halls opening here and there every week and being in this age group with Instagram,Facebook and other social networking sites it is very difficult to stay indoors for two days straight. But now we are forced to do so everyday. At least we have internet this time. Even this privilege was taken from us during CAB protests.
This have also benefited us in a way as we are spending more time with our parents, we are getting to explore our hobbies, help around the house, caring about nature; things which we now a days in a dog eat dog world have almost stopped doing with a few exceptions.
Hence it can be said that those two phenomenons, though both exceptionally different, have made us realize that there is a world far greater than inside our mobile phones and this daily grind of life.
