Cooking is in trend

Farming is a hit
When the chief minister suggested people to start farming during the lockdown, some people decided to give it a try. They did not stop by planting a few seeds in the kitchen garden, but posted pictures of the same on social media and also challenged others to do the same. Thus farming which is often ignored as a tedious task became a hit.
All are writers
Those who have a taste for creativity but never had enough time to brush up their skills have now plenty of free time with them. Many of them became active during the lockdown and initiated challenges to write stories and poems. Some publishers even offered to publish the works written during the lockdown and thus online literary groups started being active.
Some of the challenges trending on the social media are for mere time pass. The traditional wear challenges are the most popular among them.Men are asked to post pictures of them clad in dhoti and women in saree. Also they have to pass the challenge to their friends. Even film stars took part in the challenge and social media platforms were overflowing with traditional wear pictures.
Let's sing a song
The singers have a great opportunity to show their talent to the world. From popular singers to common people, all are trying to sing and post videos on the social media. Some of the noted singers also took this chance to entertain their fans.
Be it any type of challenge, it has been proven that social media can be used for good causes also especially when people have no other way of access to the outer world.
