In this hectic, complicated, abstract, and difficult life, we are much busy in our daily routines. We all are just struggling to secure our future. It is like we are traveling on the same bus, but no one pays attention to anyone. Everyone is engaged in their lives. Suppose anyone wants to talk to any other person or desires to have some gossip with their companions. In that case, the lamentable fact is that even then, they can’t enjoy the valuable moments of life just because of the stress and fatigue of work other life activities. A few years later, all the family members sat together and shared their reasons for sadness and happiness. Still, now we all feel alone, even in this tough time when a disease named coronavirus is circulating in the environment. In this miserable time, we wish to have a companion to which we can share our feelings.
