During quarantine, almost everything was vexing, still there was something about that uncanny time that was adaptive. Since the world has lately celebrated April 23 as World Book Day, the day reminds us of the unerring efficacy of quarantine-the time when books replenished us with joy in between moments of sorrow, the bad time that too had a positive impact.
So, here we are with a flashback article which will freshen the memory of the period we all can never forget but loathe to even remember. The under-mentioned article was originally written on instagram under the username @nikitarajpoot18
Books know No Religion, No Caste, No Race, No Politics & No Society. They are pure. They lay the same table of knowledge, harmony & calmness for all readers with no bias. It is about their capacity-how much they can digest, how much can keep them healthy. In Quarantine, many of us might adopt a habit of learning, gaining, writing & reading. But what about those who always value them but could not hit the sack because they could not read until the time?
How Quarantine Set Out A Positive Impact on The Literary World
It was axiomatic that books teach us what the world is & the world taught us what the books are. Not only the avid readers perceived the worth of books, but also those who were aberrated, whom the books have abandoned.
“Whom The Books Have Abandoned”! Like how books can abandon anyone! Practically, this statement is a paradox. It is perfectly a psychological statement as the cause is self-inflicted circumstances. These may be lack of time, a sort of failure in academics, the matter of facts of society, the burden of responsibility etc.
The afflicted being forgets that books are capable of erasing all chaos. Amidst all these, books left behind & their voice got buried under the clutter of life. It affects the psychology of the bearer and he undergoes an unwanted sequel. Such people who lost anticipation to be friends with books were back to the drawing board. Quarantine played a pivotal role in resuscitating the mental health of such people towards books. In culmination, the quarantine set out a positive impact on the literary world. This surely was an unerring efficacy of quarantine.
