I have finally mastered origami | Hyderabad News



By Kushal Pandey
It was a sad afternoon. My tests showed that I too was one of the many who contracted the virus. As I was already in quarantine since the day I started showing symptoms, this part of the procedure was not a struggle. But now the question was, how do I spend the rest of my life?
As my road to recovery was not bumpy, I had plenty of free time. The first two days went well, but the next day I was getting frustrated with every little thing. So I thought I had to try something new, something creative to stay calm. I started with yoga and some breathing exercises. By pushing my bed to one side, I had enough room to do all the asanas.
I then rediscovered my passion for the arts and with the help of some online tutorials, I drew various sets and sketches. I was particularly interested in origami. A lot of my friends do and their models turn out to be very beautiful. I first started with the origami crane. Although his overall shape was correct, he had a lot of blunt tips. As I continued to make more animals and figurines, they slowly started to get cleaner and more beautiful. I also read my school books which now help me understand all of my concepts faster and easier than they usually would.
Somehow the 15th day has arrived, without me even realizing it! The tests were done and my relief, I had finally conquered the deadly virus.
