It will not be dense to say that the current situation is causing us to re-evaluate many of our inbuilt beliefs.

There was once a world that didn’t restrict our movements and actions but sadly the tables have turned.

Today we have to be exceedingly cautious about how we conduct ourselves and that would be considered a wise move as carelessness can lead to us lying on the death bed.

Too intense? Let us explain.

We certainly don’t realise that Covid-19 is contagious and by not taking necessary precautions we might be unintentionally making the situation worse and leading to numerous deaths with countless families losing their loved ones.

Basically, the concept of massive destruction happening can very easily be applied here.

And it also boils down to? Just taking care, being a little more sensitive for ourselves and for those around us.

This Eid, practicing mindfulness and restricting ourselves from the common rituals can lead to saving many lives.

Celebrations are conducted where there are reasons for them to be conducted.

Yes, Eid according to our fellow Muslim community should rightfully be celebrated with fervour.

But does this apply to the current situation when we have lost so many lives?

Do we need to celebrate Eid on a massive scale?

The answer is obvious.

This Eid we should practice a minimalistic approach and practice social distancing to the maximum.

However, we know it will be difficult to implement as Pakistani ladies couldn’t even contain themselves from conducting lavish eid shopping expeditions however the thought still implies: Is it even necessary?

A few practices to follow this Eid al-Fitr:

•             Social distancing

•             Wearing face masks

•             Avoiding large gatherings

•             Hand washing and using sanitisers

•             Covering your mouth while sneezing or coughing

•             Disinfecting surfaces

•             Avoiding the common Eid greeting (no hugs and certainly no smooches)

•             Keeping it simple and keeping it safe

Motivate yourself and others around you by being a responsible citizen. Trust us, it is the new ‘cool’ and certainly would lead you to stay alive so that you can enjoy life’s wonders.
