Hope and positivity through creativity

Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is possibly the biggest threat to humankind in recent history. Many cities, regions and countries are in a state of lockdown. In India, the Prime Minister declared a complete national lockdown for 21 days from the midnight of 24th March 2020. While we remain in our homes totally locked down for the coming 3 weeks, we cannot allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by fear and panic due to coronavirus. We will need to take the COVID-19 challenge head on. LET US DO ART. We will spread hope and positivity. What better way to drive away our fears and anxieties these troubled times.
