The actor wrote:
In three weeks from now, 2020 will be behind us. A most extraordinary year. When we rang it in, I don’t think anyone had even a vague idea that three months into it and our lives, as we knew it, would come to a halt. A thriving world came to an abrupt standstill and we are still waiting for normalcy to return. No wonder, our most common refrain since March 2020 is, ‘when will life be back to old normal.
Then, he wrote about the recurrent question asked from him about 2020:
Why he admires the year 2020 when it caused a life-altering crisis across the globe?
In response to the question, he stated:
I have always felt that in every adversity lies an opportunity. We only need to discover that. The amount of free time I had on my hands, thanks to the lockdown, was God sent. I loved the languid pace at which life was moving all those months. And as Mac Davis crooned, I stopped and smelled the roses.
While talking about family, he wrote:
My kids were the happiest to have me around 24 hours and I would like to imagine myself as a more patient and wiser parent while dealing with the millennials. I finished a book that was mocking me for years for having left it in between. Caught up on sleep, wrote poetry.
Adnan concluded his note with wise words:
But most of all, 2020 enlightened me to a new perspective on life. To accept it in a larger scheme of things. I learnt that man, even if he fancies himself as omnipotent, can never conquer nature. 2020 also taught me to slow down a bit, to hold my loved ones closer, to pray a little longer, and never to take life for granted
