The past one year has been quite stressful for all of us. Staying at home, getting used to the quarantine life, and then stepping out all masked up, was a change that we all got used to. After the lockdown was lifted, shoots were permitted and I got busy with work. But, I badly needed a break and wanted to go to a place that was calm. I celebrated quarantine birthday last year as that was the time the government had announced the lockdown. Everything was shut and I couldn’t even ring in the occasion with a cake. So, I decided that I should take a trip somewhere safe to celebrate my birthday this year. Even though I have been getting some great offers in Maldives before, I had decided that I would go only during my birthday — March 31. Eventually, things fell into place and I took a six-day break from my work and headed off to Maldives for my vacay.
I took my family along with me as they too,were stuck in the house for the past one year. During the lockdown, we had grown closer, and so, I wanted to celebrate my birthday with them as well. I am a beach person and I was kicked to see Maldives. I had seen so many pictures on the internet and I must say that those pictures did not do justice to the place. Though I was upset that I couldn’t see the beautiful view from the flight on the day when we arrived on the island because we landed at night, the next morning, I woke up to the turquoise blue sea water, a sight that was truly magical!
