Czech Republic – Brno – Sequence of Events – P8

Lessons Learned through this Phase –

Time –

Give time ” Sometime ” . No matter what , life is NOT a movie to expect a solution for our problem in the next scene. It takes it’s time to teach you the lesson that needs to be learned.

Patience –

One of the key lessons that I learned from this experience is PATIENCE . There are moments where I felt depressed and thought of going back to India, but the situation tightens it too by restricting the flight operations. All I did was just waited for my turn .

Boundary –

Play the game with in the boundary , meaning I don’t have much options other than to surrender in Czech and it forced me to look for all options available with in this country . When the option to India is ruled out, I started thinking the available options in Czech on what I can do .

Survival –

I was thinking that If you don’t know a Language, it is IMPOSSIBLE to survive in that place where that language is being spoken by Majority . I realized, it is just an illusion . In this situation, we tried to learn the basics of Czech for Communication 🙂 , Of course it helped us in Supermarkets 🙂

Courage –

The best and easiest way to solve all our problems is to FACE THEM with Courage, else we will be forced to feel the situation with Pressure 🙂 . 

Thinking out of box –

when we are pushed, we tend to think differently.  When I was locked, my mind was in a spin loop and thoughts were in a same place. When we started thinking out of box on what we can do for survival, that moment is the trigger where things slowly fallen in place . I personally felt it when we tried to make food with only very few available cooking vessels 🙂 .

English is Just a LANGUAGE –

Last but not least and my favorite , The very first lesson I learned here is ” English ” is just a language and it’s OK to say don’t know if you don’t know to speak . No one think bad about it as they simply speak and respect their language and NEVER feel bad about saying they don’t know and they don’t think it as a KNOWLEDGE. I also see ENGLISH IS ILLOGICAL, the pronunciation doesn’t matter and no body care about grammar while speaking in English . There is NOTHING called right or wrong pronunciation when it comes to English. Each country has a way to speak. Just speak the way you like and Enjoy 🙂

Czech Republic – Brno – Sequence of Events – P7

Cargo update –

Plenty of events happened Parallelly for us that includes an another add-on Pressure that , Cargo got struck up in Prague . The agent in India wasn’t able to do anything and finally told us to go to Prague to clear the customs. As I said, the situation was already intense here nothing really we could do. During the month of March, I remember the COVID cases in Prague was in huge numbers and people suggested NOT to travel to Prague by car booking as other options are ruled out.

I told my team lead and Manager to spoke to the Customs office to know the exact information on why it got trapped. They told it is very difficult to clear the customs in this situation and told that it will not be cleared due to some missing information and they decided to send it back to India. Almost close to 25 days, I tried my level best to make them understand my situation , but it didn’t work. Finally they sent it back to India and you guys don’t believe me, till today the Cargo is not cleared in India due to Lock-down and for other reasons .


During all these days, we fall sick multiple times due to food , Jetlag and faced other issues as well. We tried even to consult the doctor, but getting an appointment with doctor is a real challenge. We some how managed with the available medicines , hot water and Cumin water. There are times, our International debit card doesn’t worked for couple of days.

At-last after 40 days, in our new Apartment, I received the debit card and we are able to spend the money . As our cargo was negative, I tried ordering some Cooking vessels in Amazon and it failed too with returning the money to the account 😦 . Some how from the month of September, things started falling in place. I was able to get the orders processed and receive them.

We faced three different situations with respect to Money, First, we don’t have Local Debit card and Money , then we have money but don’t have the card to spend and the last , we had debit card and money, but unable to spend the money 🙂 lol 🙂 , because of the situation plenty of orders were not processed and returned 🙂

The reason for sharing my experience is , lock-down is generic , but I thought lock-down in a new country is an unique experience.

I will conclude the series with the lessons learned through this phase
