COVID may turn out to be the ultimate stress test for human beings. A literary guide by famed Latin-American writer and Nobel prize-winning author Gabriel García Márquez first published in 1985 El Amor en Los Tiempos del Cólera in Spanish or Love in Times of Cholera is one classic we recommend for all to read. There is also a magnificent film to watch with an absolutely fabulous soundtrack to give a listen to. But manor no mistake about it, the global pandemic must be eradicated.

The holidays are a time for comfort and joy for every girl and boy regardless of their age difference because of it's just a number.

Happy couples make it work, despite pretty substantial age gaps. The practice is a pretty common sight nowadays. They say that age is just a number and they would be correct. We know of happy couples where the woman is older and visa versa.

As I approach yet another birthday and prepare to sing a sad song of a year of unnecessary hardships and COVID fear, my conclusion is that not everyone admits being attracted to sugar, spice, and everything nice. Some folks prefer wine, and sarcasm, in order to survive so it is suffice.

The following should be required reading. ‘IF’ was written by an Indian born, English Nobel Laureate poet and journalist named Joseph Rudyard Kipling. It can serve as the ultimate inspiration that tells all of us how to deal with different phases in life and helps us to become better people.

The poem, written in 1895 and first published in ‘Rewards and Fairies’, 1910 is 32 lines long with four stanzas of eight lines each. It is a tribute to Leander Starr Jameson. The poem is written in the form of paternal advice to the poet’s son, John.
