Harbhajan Singh has said that sport is the farthest thing from his mind at this point and added that he spends his time reading authentic information due to the forced isolation given the COVID-19 outbreak. He also revealed that spending all his time with family has helped keep his spirits high.
One day he was in Chennai, training alongside his CSK pals, preparing for the 13th edition of the IPL at the pre-season camp. The next day, with the IPL and all other sporting events called-off or postponed indefinitely, Harbhajan was back in Mumbai and spending time with his wife, Geeta, and three-year-old daughter, Hinaya, all day. And, it looks like he is making the most of his time with his family.
“You see life from a completely different perspective in these times of crisis. Sport is farthest from your mind at this point in time. Now that I am home, I am spending most of my time reading anything and everything about COVID-19,” Harbhajan told PTI on Wednesday.
Like many, sport is the last thing on Bhajji’s mind now. As the world grapples with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, he spends the rest of the time tracking authentic updates on the crisis, hoping for the experts to make a breakthrough.
“Me and my wife do yoga together in the morning. We are now taking time out to play scrabble and darts in the evening. At times, we watch a movie together. The break has given me an opportunity to spend quality time with Hinaya. It’s really joyful when I get to play with her. It lifts my spirit. Right now all I want is everybody to be safe,” Harbhajan added.
COVID-19 has claimed at least 21,000 lives and infected close to 475,000 people worldwide.
“You see life from a completely different perspective in these times of crisis. I try to read every authentic piece of information available. And yes, most importantly, I try to read and find out what kind of breakthrough scientists, biologists and doctors are making. You need to keep your spirits up and be self-motivated in these trying times. Any positive information lifts your spirits,” Harbhajan concluded.
