Tomorrow is April 1. Please note that because of the current Covid-19 situation we are facing, all pranks are deferred to next year – at the earliest.

Don’t curse the coronavirus because it has brought back humanity, brought back people to their morals, brought families together, pushing people to prayers, taught us how to sneeze, yawn and cough, is now making us stay at home, living simple lives.
Back to normal
Life is almost back to normal in much of China. Shops, restaurants, bars, and offices are open for business. Manufacturing activity is picking up. Traffic once again jams the highways of major cities. Three quarters of China’s workforce was back on the job as of March 24, according to one company’s estimate.
Thought for today
Cheer up. After every storm comes the sunshine.
“We will come out of this storm. In the coming days, we have to stay calm and confident. And for sure, we will overcome this moment of despair. How long this will last cannot be ascertained. But the one thing that we can be sure of is that we will not be the same anymore. Hopefully, we would have changed for the better. This is the way of life. This is how life teaches us its lessons.”
