Looking at the bigger picture of Lockdown

[responsivevoice_button voice=”UK English Female” buttontext=”Listen In English(Play/Pause)”]

We started the beginning of the decade with a bang,this was the decade where we the millennial would be graduating ,getting jobs ,some following their passions ,some getting their first love ,some marrying their partner and many more .But within few weeks we bumped with a series of mishaps all over the world and country.Starting with Australian Bush-fire ,protest against CAA & CAB,selling of various PSUs,constant decline of our country’s economy and at last this COVID-19.

It is really ironical to see that we living in 21st century with such advancement in technology where Artificial Intelligence ,Machine learning ,Neural Network and many such other crazy topics has changed the perception of the world has been shutdown due to a microscopic organism. It is really a point to ponder that a organism which cannot be seen by a naked eye has stopped all the activities on the planet. It is for the first time in the human history that the people are facing something like these in their lives. Neither us nor our parents nor our any previous generation has faced anything like these where collectively whole world is fighting with the same enemy. The fact surprises me that all the countries have armies, guns, and ammunition, nuclear weapons to fight a war against each other but now these weapons have become useless and worthless in front of a tiny virus.

It is such a time where not a single person in the world is happy, starting from a beggar to a billionaire. The beggar is sad due to hunger whereas the billionaire is sad due to loss of money in his business. Everyone is affected due to this virus. It is really tough for all those small momo sellers, the pani puri sellers, the cobbler and other such small footpath stalls. It seems like they vanished in thin air. In the news we often see those daily wage laborers who are stuck in various places without food, without shelter and mainly without money. The circumstances are really depressing everywhere.

Now we do not have 7 days a week, we have only 3 days -Yesterday Today and Tomorrow. Every Sunday night we all would be sad as our weekend would end like a lightning speed and again from Monday we would have to get back to our mundane life. But now when every day feels like a holiday we are bored, we are facing difficulties to stay in our home, can u believe that. Just like we get to know the value of light when there is darkness, we also get to enjoy our holiday when there is work. Everything needs to be balanced in life. Failures are necessary to enjoy the taste of success. So this lockdown has made us realize the importance of all those small day to day work or routine which we have taken for granted in all these years. Now we all miss those activities which once felt like stress to us.

Thus we all should utilise this time to respect and love all those small things which we every day do in our life. Tell our parents and our friends how much we love them, spend some time with our grandparents, be grateful to have a shade above our head, clothes over our body and food on our plate. Thus never take anything for granted because everything can be taken from us within a snap of a finger and even with all money and power we may be standing helpless. We hope after the end of this crisis we would emerge a better world where people would be compassionate and loving towards each other, animals and nature and we would enjoy every single moment of our life.

STAY STRONG STAY HOME , THIS SHALL TOO PASS……

  1. Now we do not have 7 days a week, we have only 3 days -Yesterday ,Today and Tomorrow🔥but I don’t think after this situation , people would be compassionate and loving towards each other, animals and nature . It’s going to be same for many people . Corona’s effect won’t be leaving us very soon though.

    1. I was reading a story a few days back and there was this quote which says“Enjoy the little things in life, for one day, you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.” I paused for a moment and read that quote again probably because it was the bitter truth that was resonating with something in the current scenario and that something being the moments we’ve left behind , the true sense of those moments we couldn’t decipher…Life is mysteriously unpredictable and never leaves behind a second chance for us to turn the wheels.
      It is the nature of life to be so much unfortunate and unreciprocal that before we realise & react , things turn upside down .

    2. It is a terrible but deeply true fact about how much microbial infections have moved human and animal societies and even plants societies over time… If we look back at our prehistoric past (source – one strange rock series and a bit of geologic studies), we could try to imagine how max oxygen production by microbes almost caused the planet to turn into a snowball (true and evident fact)… In the same way…the amount of life that has diversified into viruses ,bacteria, fungi, protists and other monerans all of them being “killer nukes” in their own ways… Various plagues and mahamaris (pandemics) have not been enough that we humans were fighting with each other and this virus outbreak had to teach us – stay home and learn to behave with family n frnds and love… Ultimately thats what we are now adapting to…21 days ka lockdown meh habit ho gaya… *Adaptation and survival of the fitest*…Nature will select who lives and who dies…just stay safe everyone…now we can do is just stay home and pray for others and do our part to stop this spreading of Covid19
