My top 5 Learnings from the COVID Year- 2020-21 – By Miheeka Bagla 

  1. Hygiene 

Not, just me, 

But in fact everybody, 

Has finally realised the importance of Hygiene, 

To stay spick-spack and clean! 

And all thanks to COVID-19 

  1. Technology 

Imagine where we would be  

In this pandemic without technology? 

Imagine not even being able to communicate online! 

Everybody would just constantly whine!!! 

The importance and quick use of technology 

Is something we have all very well learnt in 2020! 

  1. Family 

Something that sticks with us through thick and thin 

Through pandemics like this, help to come out and win 

Something that really doesn’t need more of a description 

A place where one always gets love and affection! 

To realise the true meaning of that feeling 

Is something that in 2020 we have started learning! 

  1. Hobbies 

When has one ever gotten so much time, 

To be passionate about what they are passionate? 

To draw, cook, create or rhyme? 

To do the few things that they really want to do 

For which they keep trying to borrow time 

But lands up on that list titled “Later” everytime 

2020 has taught us to do what we want to do 

That our hobbies matter too.. 

  1. To Be Grateful 

When have we ever thought, 

“Oh how lucky I truly am to go to school and eat out 

To meet my friends and roam about!” 

When we realised that these little things is what we actually wanted 2020 taught us, and taught well indeed, 

To not take things for granted!

Everything Is Not Under Lockdown

Everything Is Not Under Lockdown

Through my poem, I would like people to be hopeful and find positivity even in the most adverse situations like lockdown. We should open our hearts and minds embracing the reality and finding good in that!
“Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.”

..SUICIDE..

..SUICIDE..

It’s really hard trying to understand what’s going on in a suicidal person’s mind. Their thoughts seem absurd to us that we often choose to neglect them thinking that it’s “just a phase” or “they’ll get over it” or “they’re just angry” or “they can’t be serious”, mind you this is the worst decision we’ve been making, instead let’s show them that they are significant, loved and cared for, let’s try to understand their point of views and stop criticism.. avoid using harsh words around them because for them these words are so loud that it causes chaos in their heads.

NORMALIZING ALL BODY TYPES AND PUTTING AN END TO BODY SHAMING

NORMALIZING ALL BODY TYPES AND PUTTING AN END TO BODY SHAMING

Every day as youngsters we hear from our peers these clothes make me look so skinny, it’s better if you pose like this it makes you look slim. We say all this as if being a little chubby or fat is bad. Why can’t we normalize being fat? Bullying your friends for being fat doesn’t make you seem popular or cool. And this doesn’t end here; people are bullied for being skinny too. You may have been a victim or a villain. God has made us all with the same blood and flesh after all. Why not appreciate all forms of beauty?
