We take a break from the ‘Story of a Pharma Salesperson’ and move on to other topics. We shall return to it again later.

Year 2020 is finally going out with all the mixed feelings. It has been an unprecedented year in many respects.

When I try to write a farewell to 2020, I get stuck. What should I write really?

Is there anything other than COVID, we could talk about? Is it the only topic left in the world? Apparently, no.

The year 2020 started on a usual, happy note in Pakistan. We had heard about virus in Wuhan, but we did not think it would come here. Or if at all it came, it would not be as bad here. We had an upbeat feeling about the whole thing.

As it happened, COVID locked us down also, although we were still better off as compared to many other countries. No one knows the reason(s), but there were many theories. The second wave has also hit us; the second variant has also just been reported.

The most prominent feature has been UNCERTAINTY. It prevailed from the beginning to the end. The entire year has been a long, grey stretch which remained unclear and is still the same.

Despite all these issues, we must bid farewell to 2020.
