 Life in the fast lane has slowed down remarkably, but it has not lost complete momentum, thankfully. The glamorous, high-paced lifestyle and the luxury of owning a few supercars still exist among some, despite the economic instability.

 Since the lockdown order, I, ironically, do not feel like a prisoner in my home but rather like a new person who has elevated from a cocoon of personal growth, strength and reflection.
