INSIGHT — Last May, we bumped into few awesome videos and forwarded to our readers. They were awesome. Here they are:
1 in 2 British homeowners feed birds in their gardens — they are a huge impact. While Britishers practice social distancing (SD), these birds don’t. Humans don’t SD with them.
On self-help basis for only Rs50,000 Mohammad Amin of Bahawalpur built a “solar-powered” airconditioned 3-wheeler (Rickshaw).
Trees swaying in the breeze, as seen from above… Courtesy: Scott Hefti. They’re still doing even in the pandemic, drawing huge impact on climate change.
A raw talent with reasonable speed @TheRealPCB (Tape Ball cricket ), courtesy: @iRashidLatif. The videoclip went viral raising the Adrenaline level of our sport-enthusiastic youth.
“I am the original one. Modi is my lookalike”. Original or lookalike debate aside, Modi and his persona are making one hell of a huge (negative) impact in his country with the world questioning (in silence or loud) his “fascist” moves.
And this: US Air Force Base crew repainted their F-16C Fighting Falcon fighter into the latest 5th generation Russian fighter jet Su-57 with a slogan ‘The GHOST is here! Be afraid!’
Gorillas don’t like rain. They take shelter –with or without social distancing. Small step but a huge impact: We need them around even if the Coronacirus pandemic stays for next two years (some say).
LASTLY: Grandma was (always) right.
- Bahir muth jao. (maintain social distancing)
- Ghar baith kar kaam karo. (do home-based work)
- Phone per baath karlo. (talk online chat, etc.)
- Ziada hawas karnay ki kya zaroorat hai. (focus on need and want, not desire or greed)
- Paise bachao bure waqt ke liye. (save money, don’t spend it all)
Advanced nations are calling Grandma’s model the “new normal” which will have a huge impact. Huh? ? Didn’t have a video for this one last May.
