Srinagar: Schools in Kashmir have been shut for a year now after abrogation of Article 370 and imposition of lockdown in view of the Covid -19 pandemic.
With teaching methods being shifted to the online for the last five months, students are bored of virtual classes, assignments and miss their busy and loud class rooms.
Tired of the new normal, a second standard kid has penned a rhyme explaining lockdown blues, time-away from friends and most importantly the feel of donning a colourful uniform.
The kid in the video, which is going viral on social media, talks about time spent in the jostling classrooms before the outbreak of Covid-19 and indolent life behind four walls due to the lockdown.
Roman, who is donning his school uniform, begins his rhyme with the yearning of joining schools in order to meet his friends, classmates and teachers.
While enacting simultaneously, he says how life has become dull for students with online class, watching TV and being on phone with relatives and friends without seeing them.
At the end all he requests is the reopening of schools by the government and announce SOPs including wearing of masks, maintaining social distancing and repeated washing of hands.
The video is being shared on social media platforms Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, with netizens describing it as an outburst of emotions of students.
