"Slowdown in life, everything can wait", Reliance Entertainment CEO Shibasish Sarkar conquers Coronavirus, shares his experience

He is now back home to a normal routine and has some advice for those of us who are vulnerable to the virus. “All good for me now, eating and sleeping and eating…in that cycle. Now back home….I have couple of suggestions. First for the disease. You can’t ignore it. You don’t know how you can get it since it’s like an unknown enemy, you can only remain careful.”

As for the treatment for the virus Shibasish says, “There is no proven treatment as such so you will be on trial and error method with doctors. They will administer you some medicine…one day you will be good. The next day you will be bad. There is no rhyme or reason to the virus and its progression, as everything is trial and error. So mentally you have to remain strong. The day you remain unwell you have to believe you will get well and don’t get bogged down.”

Also a bit of advice on your lifestyle from someone who has been to hell and back. “Slowdown in life. Everything can wait. Enjoy the small moments and every bit which have forgotten to cherish.”
