From today till the 31st of March, the curfew like situation will no longer be voluntary. We have to stay indoors except for emergencies.
There is no traffic and therefore one can now hear the sound of insects and cicadas that we had stopped hearing for decades. The air is cleaner and last night, we could see the stars for a change. we can hear the birds sing and our garden is suddenly full of butterflies.
