but then something that happened that made me put them up on sale after months…..covid 19 cases were at peak in my country and it was a total chaos. My brother who was 1400 KM+ away from us in a different city due to work came out to be covid positive so he was isolated alone in his apartment. At the same time one of my friend and his family were doing noble work of providing food and oxygen in his town to people who were unable to help themself, like old couples living together or people who were unemployed.
