Japanese Flag

The Sri Lankan worker had said that he was correcting the flag which was upside down. Since we know that the Japanese flag is just a red coloured circle and looks the same when you look at it from any of the sides, so there is no way one can say that it was inverted. The Sri Lankan was caught in no time.


Good samaritans! People find ways to help others in their neighbourhoods.

Who is a good samaritan? Someone who does things that will help others, for no personal gain.

During this time when the coronavirus has so many people at home or within their neighbourhoods, and when restaurants and businesses are shut, there are those who depend on us who start to miss meals, and can’t get access to certain things. People who live on the streets, people who have accompanied their loved ones to the city for medical treatment, for example. And stray animals. In addition, watchmen and cleaners in many buildings have been asked to stay in the building to help us, and to minimise their travel back and forth to their homes. All these people and creatures need food and clean water.

There are some people who have started collecting money from their neighbours, buying food and distributing it to those who need it in the area. It’s easy – just buy a little extra of whatever you are getting for yourself and share!

Focus on the positive


The canal water in Venice is clearer because of the decrease in boat activity.

Over the last several weeks, the news has been flooded with stories of the rapidly escalating Coronavirus pandemic across the world. Lockdowns, curfews, illness and death has created a flood of sadness and negativity, but as with every dark cloud, there seems to be a silver lining to all this.

As major cities across the world have been forced to shut down and compel their citizens to remain indoors in order to stop the spread of Covid-19, there have been fewer cars on the road. No cruise ships are slicing through the oceans and fewer factories are dumping waste into the air and the sea. As a result, although people are suffering, Planet Earth and Mother Nature are healing.

Recently, European newspapers have reported that the canals in Venice, which are famous for being dirty and polluted are actually flowing clean again. Reports claim that the bottom of the canals are visible and fish and underwater plants can be seen as well.

Closer to home, Mumbai along with many cities in the state of Maharashtra were placed under curfew on Sunday, which means no one was allowed to step outside their homes. Only those who provide essential services such as police personnel, doctors, nurses and city maintenance workers were allowed to continue their duties.

People living close to Mumbai’s coastline were lucky enough to see pods of humpback dolphins swimming close to the shore. These graceful and beautiful creatures never come close to the Mumbai beaches due to the high levels of water pollution, noise and a large number of boats in the water.

The stillness and silence of the curfew brought the dolphins out to play.

So as we all continue to come together to fight the coronavirus, let us take hope in these small, but significant positive things!
