With the current situation, do we imagine getting back into the same world that we were in? All these days of lockdown have taught us to lead a minimalistic lifestyle. And as we live minimalistically, it is wonderful how the nature has revived itself. Conscious, careful, cautious are the new buzz words for human lives, while rebirth, rejuvenation etc are for nature. As nature rejuvenates, human lives rejuvenate as well. How about learning about making the most of the less we have?
