Hoarding has become a new life skill to survive Covid19. People all over the world are hoarding whatever they can. In many countries, people started hoarding toilet papers. Honestly, I didn’t understand why of all things, people started hoarding toilet papers. Diarrhea was definitely not a major symptom of Covid19. Thankfully, we desis had no such worries for obvious reasons. During the Covid19 outbreak, the Indian way of namaste became very famous. Famous people like Prince Charles and Justin Trudeau started doing namaste to avoid physical contact that takes place during a handshake. I feel they also should start adapting the Indian way of greeting the rear, which would save them from the toilet paper crisis.
In most countries, people started emptying grocery store shelves in no time. A school friend who lives in the US said their local stores have run out of common salt. She is cooking without salt for almost a week. We heard numerous such horror stories from every part of the world. Human beings have gone back to their primitive hoarding instinct for survival after Covid19 hit the world.
