1.3 billion people are under lockdown in India. Still, 14 days left and people are already getting bored. Well, if you don’t plan your day, boredom is an obvious consequence.
So why not make most out of this golden period of lockdown? I mentioned it as a golden period because if one is willing, one can easily consume a lot of content in one’s bucket list.
