With schools across the country shut due to the 21-day lockdown announced by the government to curb the spread of novel coronavirus, parents are having a real tough time keeping their children engaged in different indoor activities.
Amid this, former Indian hockey captain Viren Rasquinha has come up with an idea of an obstacle course to keep her daughter occupied as well as fit.
The video posted by Rasquinha which has now gone viral on social media shows the little girl easily crossing the hurdles or the obstacles laid on her path throughout the house.
The activities involved running zigzag without touching the items on the floor, dribbling a basketball, balancing and jumping from the sofa, twirling a hula hoop, riding a stationary cycle, archery.
"Keeping the little one busy with a home obstacle course," read the caption of the 1-minute-52-second video.
