BanglaHunt Desk: Currently, the whole world is under house arrest due to Corona virus (COVID-19). This lockdown is the only tool to fight against this deadly virus. That is why the whole world is now under house arrest. In ancient times, however, a number of talents were developed during this lockdown. Although this method was not called lockdown at the time, people were forced to isolate themselves from society and stay confined to their homes to protect themselves from diseases such as cholera and plague.
We are all familiar with the names Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, John Milton and Lord Byrne. However, the hard reality behind the success of these great people is unknown to many. How they developed their own talents by facing lockdowns in different situations is a sign of creativity.
Isaac Newton Sir Isaac Newton, a scientist at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, spent a long time in university archives during lockdown situations. Newton set the standard as a poster child during the plague epidemic. Newton played the role of poster child in the posters made to prevent and raise awareness about the epidemic in 175-16. Because at the time of the epidemic, Newton left his family and set an example in solitude.
During this epidemic, Newton spent a lot of time away from his family and society. During this long period he developed a different feeling. By experimenting with this time, he discovered the principles of gravity, the laws of motion, and the principles of reflection.
Charles Darwin Charles Darwin was away from society in 18 because of his personal illness, not because of any special epidemic. He suffered from vertigo, nausea, body obstruction, fatigue, anxiety, vision problems and many other problems. During this time he spent his entire time in research under house arrest.
Lord Byron spent most of his life in isolation and solitude. Byron returned from Greece during the cholera crisis and was under house arrest in Malta for 40 days. Back in Malta he wrote a song entitled ‘Farewell to Malta’ as a satirical poem. He later realized that these days under house arrest had taught him many lessons.
John Milton, the author of great works such as Paradise Lost and Aeropagitica, also faced a lockdown in 1827. When he was a first-year college graduate at Cambridge University, the city took on the shape of a plague epidemic. At the time, he was a prisoner at his London home. Taking advantage of this time, he tuned Elikia Prima in a comic style.
