Richa Chadha gives some words of wisdom: 'A close friend today messaged me saying that he feels guilty for having a comfortable life when there are so many who are suffering, walking home without money or food or medicines...

'I told him I felt like that till yesterday. But not anymore...guilt, sadness will lower our immunity! जान है तो जहान है! You may be reading news about crores of rupees donated and perhaps feeling inadequate or overwhelmed...

'Each of us must do what we can in whatever way we can. Can you support one family through this time? Can you support one person?

'We also must use this time to think about modern life, and it's excesses! Do we really need to consume as much as we do? Do we need so many clothes, appliances, friends, things?

'Right now life is simple. Clean, cook, eat, read, repeat.

'I am going to use my time positively, in helping other humans out and spreading joy and love at home...

'Spending time with my family as much as I can virtually and my pets. And PRAYING! I AM PRAYING FOR ALL OF YOU TOO.'

Tisca Chopra is upset by the 'news about the treatment of migrant workers'.

'Such little value for human life in our country,' she writes, adding: 'I am told that quarantine is making everyone eat more.. stress eating, I think .. I have gained two kgs in the past week.

'What can one expect, staying home and heading to the fridge for distraction?!

'So have cut down carbs for the night and have decided to intensify exercise and weigh myself everyday .. also back to intermittent fasting of 14-15 hours from tomorrow.

'I hate being overweight and sluggish. Was a plump child, so gaining weight makes me feel terrible .. I deep cleaned the house today .. my question still is, how I can see dust when everyone else can't?

'Watched the rest of the brilliant satirical Irani film 'Taxi' by Mr @jafar.panahi .. have become a huge fan of his work..

'Food was simple today, some kurkuri bhindi, methi aloo, moong daal and jowar rotis.. What did you guys do to give meaning to your day?'
