Maniesh Paul said to Hindustan Times, “My parents were really missing me, mainly my mother. As it had been a long rift since we all were together, I decided to fly down to join them. While earlier due to the increasing cases it was not cautious and advisable to travel, now due to the fall in cases and unlock beginning across the country, I decided to come to spend the moment with my parents.”
He further adds, “Earlier, we never even noticed how simple it was to do particular things, like travelling, we would just take a flight and visit our parents and come back. Now, even that feels like such a huge task”.
Staying away from his family for such a long duration was not easy for him, he confesses, but he didn’t want to be a risk and risk for his parent’s health.
