During this pandemic, everyone has to wear face masks. There is no doubt about that. But a fascinating part is some masks carry some messages. When I went to market a few days ago, I was observing a person who wore a mask on his face which had a message “silence please”. Though the message was not appropriate to that place, it attracted me well, and the paradoxical thing was, he was removing the mask very often in order to communicate to somebody.
Now it is a little tough to recognize some person even they are extremely devoted to us since they are wearing a mask. Even somebody meets, they are unable to exchange words because of the mask. In older days, they were interacting through gestures. Now we have so many devices to communicate what we want to convey.
If everybody carries messages through their masks, will it be attractive? In my opinion, it is an incredible tool to express our views or convey our message to others.
Just imagine, in what ways it can be used, and what are the messages can be printed on the mask.
At a Hotel reception, the receptionist may wear a mask with the message ‘Can I have your name please?’ We can instantly wear a mask which may have our name. As a result, the receptionist will be able to note down our name.
A person loves a girl, but he could not express his love for her because of fear. This type of guys can get the masks printed with “I love you” and stand in front of the girl ‘boldly’. But, the guy should beseech god that the girl should not wear a mask with “I hate you” or “I’ll thrash you”.
The chap should be very careful and allow no one to wear this kind of masks because in case if his father wears on an emergency and invites many perplexities.
A person who is in search of a job may wear a mask with “I need a job” and give a concise introduction about him like qualification, age, experience, etc. At the same time, an employer who needs an employee may have a mask with “need a job? Send details to this mail id” and may urge indirectly everyone who is eligible to apply.
In a classroom, the teacher cannot shout every time to keep the students silence. Hence the teacher may wear a mask with “Shut your mouth” or “Silence please” or “If you want to leave, shout.” But the naughty students may have masks which carry the message “I won’t shout but to leave”.
In an election campaign, more number of persons not permitted due to the pandemic. Hence the political parties could disseminate masks with the message “Vote for (candidate’s name)“ to voters in a massive way with the symbol of the party and demand each party worker wear and roam the particular area of the city.
When a friend or colleague looks depressed, we cannot touch or hold his hand and pacify. So, we can wear masks which says “Be Positive” or “Be Bold” or ” Don’t lose your confidence”.
Nowadays beggars are also choosy. Beggars do not accept what we provide. Therefore, they are prepared to fight for this cause and set their limit for acceptance. So in future, beggars may have masks with “I won’t accept below this…” or “please contribute above …”.
In a hospital, patient can wear “Thank you” mask to express his gratitiude and the doctor may wear “You’ll become alright” mask.
This pandemic has promoted many unfamiliar things in our life. Though the preceding lines are imaginary, we cannot say these things will not occur.
