On Tuesday, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that people seem to become more compassionate while coping with the Covid-19 pandemic and hope that even after the crisis ends, there will be a sense of gratitude to frontline workers such as doctors and police personnel.
Speaking in an online classes organised by ‘unacademy’, Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma said about the challenges they have faced before tasting success.
“The one positive out of this crisis that we as a society have become more compassionate. We are showing more gratitude to the frontline workers in this war, be it police personnel, doctors or nurses. I hope it stays this way even after we overcome this crisis,” said Kohli with Sharma seated next to her.
Indian skipper said that pandemic has taught the world a very important lesson.
“Life is unpredictable. So, do what makes you happy and not get into comparisons all the time. People have a choice now how to come out of this phase. Life is going to be different after this,” said the skipper.
For Anushka Sharma, the pandemic has forced people to care about the basics in life.
“There is a learning in all of this. Nothing happens without a reason. If the frontline workers were not there, we would not have access to basics,” she said.
“This has taught us that no one is special than the other. Health is everything. We are more connected as a society now,” she added.
During this session, Kohli was asked about the moment when he felt most helpless. He said when I was not picked for the state team. I felt that nothing was working for me and I cried the whole night and asked my coach ‘ why did the not get selected’
