My top 5 Learnings from the COVID Year- 2020-21 – By Miheeka Bagla
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
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!
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!
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..
- 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!
We take pride in helping those who are in need. Please take into account the below information and share if needed

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.”
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.
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?
