Dungarpur: A COVID-care centre in Dungarpur district of Rajasthan has emerged as a role model by setting up new benchmarks as it offers music, meditation, aerobics along with the choicest of menu for the people staying here! Called as Parda Chundawat Quarantine Centre, it has set example by creating a serene environment where people wake up listening to soothing music.
Then, there are Yoga and meditation classes where they exercise to shoo off negativity from their mind. In fact, the daily schedule of those admitted here is quite impressive. They wake up listening to melodious bhajans at 6 am. Soon after, there are two yoga classes -- one for the people who love to do indoor exercise while the other for those who are interested to do yoga under open sky.
All guidelines of social distancing are followed by the people while performing yoga. Soon after Yoga, they go for aerobics where they stretch their body rhythmically on different music beats.
Thereafter, they get breakfast of their choice and are served lunch in the afternoon. The evening awaits for another interesting activity where they listen to their favourite songs of renowned singers including Kishore Kumar, Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar amongst others, while sitting together.
Kids find this environment really engaging, says Sabhla sub divisional officer Manish Faujdar who is in charge of this centre. Also, there are psychological experts who help in counselling. “People coming here are quite worried about their future life, their spouses and families.
These counsellors help them connect to meditation with scientific facts which make them feel joyful and relieves them of their stress,” says Chhaya Choubisa, assistant director, Information and public relations, Dungarpur.
Faujdar says that when admitted, these people were quite aggrieved and angry. “We saw an unseen fear in their eyes and mind. Therefore, we introduced a few activities which can make them relieved from their stress, offering mental peace to them.” District collector Kanaram also visited this place and praised these innovations.
