Mental Fight against Covid

The sketch represents two states of mind that are battling inside us during the Covid-19 Pandemic. The girl who wants to go out, meet friends, spend time with them, is looking is into the mirror who is telling to stay at home and take all precautions.

Story Behind the Artwork

During the ongoing pandemic, everyone is at home, isolated from the outside world and friends.

We all want to go out again, spend time with friends, and enjoy our lives like before. But somewhere in our minds, we are aware of our responsibilities and role to be played during this hard time. We know that we need to stay at home, maintain social distancing, and take all precautions possible to contain the virus.

Whenever our min demands to go out, we keep convincing ourselves not to go out and control our desires, because we know, Everything will get back to normal someday if we take proper care...

Now when the Winter is near and experts warn about the second wave of the pandemic, we should take precautions recommended by WHO.
