In the wake of Coronavirus, people across the globe are observing lockdown in their cities, practicing self-isolation and are distancing themselves socially to curb the multiplication of COVID-19. Just like the other celebs, Lisa Ray is gearing up for the release of Four More Shots Please season 2, took to Instagram and shared how she is dealing with COVID-19 in Singapore. She shared a picture of herself wearing a government issued mask and wrote a long note alongside.
Her letter read, “Here in SINGAPORE (I have to emphasise my location as we’re not under curfew, but in ‘circuit breaker mode’) I find myself even more watchful on my morning coffee runs along Roberston Quay. I watch people’s expressions, their eyes lighting up in excitement when they recognise a friend and then offering a muted greeting across the mandated one metre safe distancing length. Others can’t help themselves and gather in uneasy clusters outside coffee shops, serving ‘take out and run’ morning delicacies. Some people walk with clenched jaws, their anxiety working beneath their skin.I’m wearing a government issued reusable 3 ply fabric mask (thank you Singapore!) so no more excuses for reckless exposure.”
“There’s a part of me that wants to volunteer as a social distancing ambassador and help enforce the rules. I understand it’s difficult for some people to adjust but we’re in the midst of a global health crisis and it’s no longer about the individual. We each have to shift our mindset. It’s not a sacrifice but a necessity to stay home, stay sane and keep your distance for the welfare of us all,” it read further.
She also stated that there’s no way to sugarcoat this, but living like this a precursor to seismic change. “Don’t be married to perceptions of ‘normal’ and they way things were before. You’ll only cause yourself dukka or suffering. Experiment with flow and acceptance. it’s all in the mind. #hijabieyes #safedistancingworks” (ALSO READ: National Cancer Awareness Day 2019: Sonali Bendre, Lisa Ray, Rishi Kapoor, Manisha Koirala And Others Who Braved The Deadly C)
