End of Lock-down for me and I am back to work today. Our HR circular has given instructions that 50% of the employees will work in each shift with two shifts per day.I am in the Second shift which is from 1.30pm to 6.30pm.
Gave sanitizer, liquid soap, mask and face shield to the driver too and we started.
Stepped out of our colony for the first time in almost two months. I saw lots of road side makeshift vendors selling vegetables and fruits. Traffic was very less compared to the normal times but expected much lesser traffic. No police verification , no barricades whatsoever all along the 13 km from home to work.
Restaurants, Retail stores, Malls, schools a not open whereas all others like Hospitals , diagnostics, clinics, pharmacies , opticians, all construction material selling stores , auto repair stores , few sweet shops (without seating) are open.
Had to observe the shap n size , the gait ,the hair to recognise my colleagues 🙂 on the way to my cabin.
Came in much early and found our floor was dark. I was the first one to come in during the second shift. Had to search for my cabin keys and open the door myself , something that I never did before.
Very soon , other colleagues started pouring in . Everyone wore masks but it was not easy to maintain 6ft distance.
Within few minutes of being in office and the past two months felt like a dream.
On the way back I noticed that my car driver was speeding, I told him to go slow but he said ‘curfew madam’
We reached home on dot.
