Life is neither a bed of roses nor a bed of thorns. There are ups and downs and we have to face them boldly and with equanimity. After fulfilling our duties now we are enjoying vanaprastha ashram in the busy city of Chennai in an apartment complex.Our forefathers used to go to the forest during vanaprastha ashram. After leading a luxurious life in cities we can’t even think of it now. Even if we are prepared to try it, it is not possible now as almost all the forests are destroyed. COVID-19 has given the opportunity to watch the epics Ramayana and Mahabharatham. Nearly four and half hours to five hours spent on this. Being a connoisseur of Carnatic music I have joined a Carnatic music site Carnatic Quartet where people post vocal and instrumental music according to the theme of the day in pure Carnatic style. We get the opportunity to hear songs rendered by doyens and jambawans of yester years as well as present day artists and upcoming young artists. For those who always want to keep themselves engaged there are a lot of things to do and to learn. Always try to have a positive attitude and keep enjoying life which God has bestowed.
