Bolonavirus | Dear Bollywood Fans,
Hasn’t it been a while watching a new movie in the theater?
Yeah, we know you’ve already started missing those days badly. But what can you do when
the theaters are closed?
Relax! Since Corona virus has brought everything to a halt – we thought to bring you some
compelling stuff to dilute your Bollywood crave. It may not be equivalent to that fascinating
experience, but it’s not too less too. Bolonavirus
Let’s begin and have a look at what your favorite celebs are doing or saying in this phase of
Direct from the legend first:
Sir Bachchan is doing great – spending a good time writing and widening hope and
awareness among people.
Today, he writes, “Years ago, anthropologist Margaret Mead was asked by a student what she considered to be the first sign of civilization in a culture. The student expected Mead to talk about fishhooks or clay pots or grinding stones. But no. Mead said that the first sign of civilization in ancient culture was a femur (thighbone) that had been broken and then healed. Mead explained that in the animal kingdom if you break your leg, you die.
You cannot run from danger, get to the river for a drink or hunt for food. You are meat for prowling beasts. No animal survives a broken leg long enough for the bone to heal. A broken femur that has healed is evidence that someone has taken time to stay with the
one who fell, has bound up the wound, has carried the person to safety and has tended the
person through recovery. Helping someone else through difficulty is where civilization
starts, Mead said.
You are all the medics that repair that ‘broken femur’.
We are at our best when we serve others. Be civilized. be safe .. be cautious .. be in care ..”
Well said, Sir!!
Alike, the legend Amitabh Bachchan, Aparshakti Khurana has also presented his poetic
skills, and written a poem about this time and shared it online.
“अरसा हो गया
वक्त गवाए अरसा हो गया
यूँ लुत्फ़ लिए अरसा हो गया
नींद मुफ़्त लिए अरसा हो गया
इत्मिनान से सोचे अरसा हो गया
तकिए को दबोचे अरसा हो गया
पेड़ की छाँव में बैठे अरसा हो गया
खुद से खुद को कुछ कहते अरसा हो गया
माँ से बात किए अरसा हो गया
पड़ोसी से मुलाक़ात किए अरसा हो गया
गिटार बजाए अरसा हो गया
किशोर दा के गाने गाए अरसा हो गया
सच पूछो तो अच्छे से मन ही मन मुस्कुराए अरसा हो गया।

Do you remember the last time your life was as slow as it is today? We’ve been part of the
rat race since so long that we barely got time to connect even with ourselves.
Today, I can’t help but see a bright side of this pandemic. A side which is telling us to slow
down, to reflect, to introspect, to connect with others while connecting with our own selves.
Also, let’s try not to panic. As the most intelligent species on earth, we definitely will find
ways to tackle it, cure it and come out of it stronger, as we always have. Till then, let’s
remember – we are all in this together.” Bolonavirus
Not all are happy being home, not because of the work-loss, but because of the wedding-
loss: Varun Dhawan-Natasha Dalal, Richa Chadha-Ali Fazal had to postpone their weddings
due to the virus spread.
All in all, we should see the positive side of everything and try to pull out the good from it.
Everybody is busy exploring – why don”t you?
Stay home, stay safe. India, let”s fight Corona together.
For such updates, stay tuned with us. Wink! —Bolonavirus.
