Weekend! The very word is music to our ears. It is when a week-long slogging comes to an end and we get time to recharge our batteries. We use these two days to spend quality time with friends and families, go out for a hearty meal, indulge in outdoor activities, or catch up on a newly released movie. The current pandemic and the consequent social distancing measures have put a stop to these fun activities, which families usually indulge in. Weekends have lost their meaning to some extent, as going out for non-essential activity is out of the question.
