“I wore masks, sanitised, maintained social distancing and did everything else that came recommended.. but at some point, I grew a tiny bit tired of how this was affecting my “normal life”... and took it easy.. Fast forward to a few days later, Here I am.. posting pictures on IG, doing Yoga to increase lung capacity, taking turmeric latte, antivirals, multivitamins, communicating with my parents on the balcony and finally realising... this was so not worth it..mask up, do everything else u need to.. don’t take it for granted.. cos Winter is surely coming,” wrote Aishwarya as describing her present situation.
