Many states have imposed 144/Lockdowns to prevent spread of corona virus.
My State TN has imposed 144 starting from 6pm today which is poor fucking move because people are trying to get to thier hometowns which have caused chaos in bus stations and railway stations.
But Health Ministry in my State is doing a fine job but only complaint I have for them is they're not testing enough people and have a set of criteria to check the patients.
How's your state handling things and how you guys are keeping yourself busy.
Please share your thoughts.

I've been trying to register on battle.net for CoD Warzone. But every time I hit the submit button, it just reloads the page. For two days straight.
Tried different PCs and browsers.

This is day 9 at home (began isolation early on doctors advice) and working/studying from my home desktop and laptops. I actually renewed my Tata Sky TV connections for 3 months so that I could watch the news and not depend the struggling internet connections for viewing. Stopped viewing Netflix and other streaming services. Torrenting is restricted to a max of 3-4 hours a day. Working, studying, yeah this is DAMNED boring but then health and safety comes first. All payments made via card/UPI/NEFT. Maids given off from Fri till 31/3, salaries not deducted and no cash handling either. Salaries paid through e-transfers. All groceries purchased online, with a few items from the neighborhood kirana wala.

Yeah, and I am also breathing in the cleaner fresher air, appreciating birds tweeting and singing. It is nice to see world slow down albeit for the wrong reasons.

Corona has reached nearby areas that are 2-5 KMs away, people are panicking, shops and everything are closed. Some vegetable markets are jam packed because Navratri is also here. Kuch acha ho nahi raha hai waise. The internet speeds and connections are very good here, there's that.

Learning is great....I love self paced learning.Working on HTML,JS,RUBY ON RAILS among others.
