In times of uncertainty and fear due to the lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, the actor Arunoday Singh feels it’s a great way to spread some solace among people. Social media has become the new stage to perform for actor Arunoday Singh, who has been entertaining his audience by reciting works of renowned poets.
Every day, Arunoday picks one or two poems and posts a video in which he reflects the current scenario
Every day, Arunoday picks one or two poems and posts a video in which he also reflects upon his thoughts around the current scenario. He says, “When I first tried it out, it was more of a whim and I didn’t think it through. The minute my video finished uploading, I wanted to delete it because I thought it’ll be embarrassing. You have your insecurities of how you look and sound. But then, I just left it and there were so many people who wrote to me.”
We all learn the lesson and not go back to being complacent and carefree: Arunoday Singh
It was the response from a couple of doctors that urged him to continue making more such videos. Singh says, “I couldn’t consider myself a writer or poet if I didn’t let it affect me a little bit. Thus, I speak about it in between. I feel it’s a wake-up call for us and I hope that once it’s over, we all learn the lesson and not go back to being complacent and carefree.”
