Anushka Sharma Made A Hilarious Excuse For Losing In Ludo With Her Family. That’s All Of Us RN
In the middle of a digital storm, this period has made us value human connection again. Now that we can’t go to a café with our friends and be on our phones, we’ve been forced to spend time with our people. Because how many times can you really look at different versions of dalgona coffee on your Instagram feed? How many movies/shows can you watch in a day? So here’s what I think happened. We were forced to go back to basics and spend time with our people – talking, playing games and more. And then a little into this and we realised that it is actually pretty good. Why have we been burying ourselves into our social media feeds instead of really connecting with our loved ones?They don’t seem so bad after all.
Somehow, all of us are treating this period in a similar manner. Most of us aren’t able to sleep well, we are watching reruns of Friends and Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, and we are competitively playing Ludo. In fact, the game of Ludo has made such a big comeback; it’s like the Ramayan of games. It seems like Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli couldn’t stay away from indulging in some Ludo after all. She shared a screenshot of a game between Anushka, Virat and their parents and it came loaded with her humour. Anushka was clearly losing and all her tokens were home. “I am not losing…I am staying home and practising social distancing,” she wrote. I bet so many of us have cracked this social distancing x ludo joke as well. Recently, she had also shared a picture of her fam playing a Monopoly-like game.

It’s from our primary care givers – family that we learn how to tread the journey of life, how to walk, how to eat, how to socialize & then face the world. This forms our initial conditioning that has a lasting impact on us. In the world we inhabit today, there is a lot of uncertainty and I'm sure a lot of you have found that solace & sense of familiarity with your families. Stay at home to take care of everyone precious in your lives. And also make the most of these moments … smile, laugh, share, show affection, clear mis-understandings, develop stronger/healthier bonds, discuss life and dreams and pray for a better tomorrow. We all have been moved deeply, we all have been affected deeply and hopefully we will carry forward these lessons in the days to come. And hopefully, we have all conditioned ourselves to relook at the world we inhabited before all of this happened… P.S. : It was a super close game of Monopoly and the competitive side of everyone was out there. Any guesses who won??
Anushka Sharma is enjoying spending time with her family, especially since both Anushka and Virat have hectic careers that involve a lot of travelling. Recently, she shared a video in which she is hilariously teasing Virat. She is pretending to be a fan and asking him to give a four! She wrote: “I thought he must be missing being on the field. Along with the love he gets from millions of fans, he must be especially missing this one particular type of fan too. So I gave him the experience.” Her followers definitely enjoyed this video, especially with Virat’s reaction!
Speaking about how she is spending time with her fam, she wrote: “It’s from our primary care givers – family that we learn how to tread the journey of life, how to walk, how to eat, how to socialize and then face the world.

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.

It’s amazing what this lockdown has done. We’ve returned to the way we used to spend our time as kids. We are playing our favourite childhood games and making family time a priority. I hope when things return to normal, we don’t leave this behind!
