Shama Sikander who's known for her bold and outspoken self, says she's doing fine in this lockdown. Opening up to a leading daily, she said, "I’m enjoying this basic life. I never thought this can be enjoyable. We’ve forgotten how to be normal human beings. We are always running behind some weird dreams we have no idea about. We just want to achieve something, without knowing whether it’s what we want to achieve. People normally want to achieve things more because others are, not because they want to.
She further revealed how depression issues drove her crazy in the past. "When I was in depression, I used to look at people, normal housewives and I used to wonder what purposes can this woman have? She’s just doing normal chores, taking care of her husband, is that all her life? I thought if you want to live your life you need to achieve more and be something but God knows what. I’m learning that being a normal human being is of great value. It’s not something that is lame as we think it is, " she added.
While there's a rise in cases of domestic violence and mental issues during the lockdown, Shama says its people's inability to accept situations which drive them into this. "No human being has the right to beat another. People are now staying at home and a lot of people have anger issues and it’s a result of all that. Unfortunately this is a deeply engraved problem. It’s because of generations of wrong training, " she concluded.
