Anushka Sharma has come up with a deep and thoughtful post on Instagram on the current times when coronavirus is playing havoc in the entire world. While trying to point out the positives in the current environment of negativity, the actress said that this is the time to do things we generally don't as we are too busy. 

“Every dark cloud has a silver lining. And this time, while it may seem like the worst time, and in so many ways it actually is, has also forcefully made us all stop and deal with things we might have been running away from because either we were ‘busy’, or it was convenient to say we were ‘busy’. If this time is respected for what it is, it will enable more light to shine through,” she said on Instagram, where she also posted a picture of herself with husband and cricketer Virat Kohli, and their pet dog. 

Sharma says that having food, water, a roof over her head and the good health of her family is most important. “Everything else is a bonus and I bow my head in gratitude,for it,” she said. “But, that which we call ‘basic’ is not so basic for everyone after looking at all the people who struggle for just those few things. My prayers with them and their families. May everyone be safe and secure,” she added.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Every dark cloud had a silver lining. And this time, while it may seem like the worst time and in so many ways it actually is, has also forcefully made us all stop and deal with things we might have been running away from because either we were ‘busy’ or it was convenient to say we were 'busy'. If this time is respected for what it is, it will enable more light to shine through. This time has also made us all realise what's truly important. For me just having food, water and a roof over my head and the good health of my family seems MOST important. Everything else is a bonus that I bow my head in gratitude for. But, that which we call 'basic' is not so basic for everyone after looking at all the people who struggle for just those few things. My prayers with them and their families. May everyone be safe and secure. This time has surely made me more reflective. This need to stay at home with your loved ones has been forced upon the entire world but there is a deep lesson for us all. There is a lesson to strive for work and life balance ( I've valued and strived for this dearly for many years now ), there is a lesson to devote more time in things that actually matter. Today, when I'm surrounded by all the blessings in my life, I just want to tell everyone how much compassion I feel for everyone who I see suffer. I want to help as many possible in the best of my abilities. I feel pride in our resilience to be better human beings. I can instinctively feel this in and around me. We will all have our individual and subjective lessons from this time and hopefully, such lessons will continuously stay with us all.

She added that this period has made her more reflective and the need to stay at home has a deep lesson for all of us. “There is a lesson to strive for work and life balance (I’ve valued and strived for this dearly for many years now), there is a lesson to devote more time to things that actually matter,” she said. 
 
While Sharma is feeling blessed with the things she has, she also wants to do her bit for those who are going through an ordeal currently. “Today, when I’m surrounded by all the blessings in my life, I just want to tell everyone how much compassion I feel for everyone who I see suffer. I want to help as many as possible to the best of my abilities,” she said. 

Lastly, the actress said that all of us have had, or will have lessons to learn from this period. “I feel pride in our resilience to be better human beings. I can instinctively feel this in and around me. We will all have our individual and subjective lessons from this time and hopefully such lessons will continuously stay with us all,” she said.
