"We all were waiting, to step into a free world after the 21 days lockdown. To the places, we walked through, our friendship gangs, the market, the sea, the places where we celebrated, played, prayed, to meet our loved ones, parents…," Mohanlal wrote.
The actor also described how desperately all were waiting to meet their loved ones, who were separated by the lockdown. “We were all waiting to travel beyond the boundaries of lockdown. To meet our parents, family, children, friends. We were all waiting to do things that have to be completed. But our nation said, wait, the day hasn't arrived yet. Show some more patience. For you, for us, for our nation," he further added.
The actor also turned philosophical and emphasized that one would realize the worth of something only when we lose them. “Sometimes, we realize the worth only when we lose it. The same applies to freedom. How free were we?” he exclaimed.
Recalling a part of a Greek author's autobiography Mohanlal wrote, “He was recounting his childhood days. It was a sudden downpour. The whole village was flooded. He witnessed their vineyard disappearing in the flood. Nature has taken all that he earned. His father was standing by the door. He was a soldier, a man who witnessed many wars. The son said, "Father, our vineyards are destroyed." To which father replied, "But we are alive."
Elaborating the story Mohanlal added that after the lockdown everyone should be able to think the same that ‘we are alive’, because, everything we lost would be reversed, but not lives. The actor concluded his note quoting American singer Pete Seeger's lines. “We shall overcome. We shall overcome someday. Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe. We shall overcome someday.”
