Country to go for Mockdowns, not lockdowns
Is it the third wave of the pandemic or the second? While that question is up for debate, there's no question that Chapasthan, popularly known as Singapore and the America of the east, has been witnessing its second country-wide lockdown.
This time people are in a huge confusion regarding the word 'lockdown' as things seem to be open from morning till dusk.
A group of conscious people has checked the word in the Oxford dictionary and tried to match the meaning with the current circumstances of Chapasthan.
Under the current lockdown, the people of Chapasthan are bound to go to their workplace where they produce wheat and milk to earn their bread and butter. Of course, that's a great strategy, undertaken by the emperors of Chapasthan, to keep pace with the American economy.
Furthermore, the country, which sees high emissions of methane, are gearing their new safety measures to benefit people's health. "Our government is saving non-renewable energy by keeping public transports static. Maybe we are moving on foot, but it's also a great move for our health," Shukkur Ali, a daily public bus commuter, said while asked about this 'Mockdown'.
The country recently also challenged its people to go to their workplace without using any vehicles. One of the emperors of Chapasthan gave this scientific explanation. "We try to make people more creative and innovative. When they do not get any vehicle to reach their destinations, they will think about alternatives. This will bring innovation and they may invent a new way of safe transport just like how the airplane was invented," he said.
But the country has also been cautious so its citizens aren't bored during the mockdown, with many entertainment options kept open.
The bookfair seems to be a corona-free place where you may go without mask or any antiseptic. Insiders say that Chapasthan and Covid-90 have agreed a term that Covid-90 will not affect any human being who comes to the fair to buy books without taking any selfies or making romanticised posts about our love for books and the permanence of those.
Elsewhere, some shops are open and some aren't. "My shop took the vaccine! I registered it as 41-years-old. How could a vaccinated shop spread Coronavirus among its customers?" a shop-keeper asked.
People are gathering here and there. Some come on the road to see how it looks during lockdown. The mask lost its previous place and seems to be in a long-distance relationship with the nose. Social distancing seems to be a socially awkward activity. People give a surprised look to anybody who suggests to maintain social distancing in public. One of the country's Facebook celebrities posted, "This is a unique style of lockdown. The developed countries should learn from us. We restrict people's movement and keep places open. That's how we balance two sides. Especially, I believe in lockdown of the mind. The lockdown of mind is the biggest lockdown. Every day I go to market, park, shopping malls, tea stalls but believe that everything, including me, is in lockdown. I love this doctrine. Do you?"
