Blessing in disguise – Hostile virus in town

Blessing in disguise – Hostile virus in town

The article is dedicated to all the medical, nursing, paramedics, cleaning, Police staff and all involved in supply of essentials who are working tirelessly keeping their life at stake, the job of nothing less than a sentinel. Some of the facts presented below are not applicable to these people. They are the people who are providing me opportunity to look at the situation from the perspective highlighted here.

I strongly believe that there is a set of people in this world who are expert in seeing positive in all situations and I proudly consider myself one amongst them. All forms of media are filled with heart sinking well-articulated data on Covid-19. Such sensational news and statistics on human life makes a good business. In such scenario, I just could not stop myself from penning my thoughts contradictory to news in market and started clicking the keys of keypad as finding pen would have caused discomfort during this quarantine-moon (QM) time.

I have termed this period Quarantine-moon (QM) as honey is not necessarily part of everyone’s package. This is an enforced holiday package for most of us as few days back we were forced to leave office view lockdown declared by government. You are quarantined with your loved ones except the people who have got stuck elsewhere and haven’t been able to make it to destination. The creativity breeds in mind when it is set free. This small article written by me is proof enough of the same. Otherwise office work and house errands never gives space for creativity.

Tremendous increment has been seen in involvement of men in household breaking old Indian myth and increased coordination amongst couples. These changes would go long way in improving quality of life in times ahead.

European Space Agency by satellite imagery has recorded reductions in NO2 emissions in northern Italy and European Environment Agency reported similar change in Barcelona and Madrid. Last month NASA also noticed nitrogen dioxide (NO2) fell dramatically in Wuhan. In Venice polluted canals have been clearer and wildlife returned to the water. The turtles are hatching eggs undisturbed on beaches as intruders are lockdown in their houses. The famous Indian Cricketer Harbhajan Singh has tweeted seeing Himalayan ranges from Ludhiana for the first time in life. This list of firsts would go endless as these are unprecedented situation.

The families and friends are connected like never before via voice and video calls. I strongly believe that the best of bonds are created in worst of times. May these bonds firm up and continue throughout life with purpose of making this world more peaceful and joyous.

It will not be justified if I don’t mention lives being lost and world-wide economic slump. The worst part is lives being lost. Let’s resolve to protect all around us specially elders and persons with morbidity from getting infected and keep the happiness and positivity around us at any cost.

The situation is not that gloomy as this may be considered a necessary pause in superfast lives for nature to heal itself. The worldwide lock down is helping the nature healing. If we look from this perspective then going little slow and following lock down in true spirit will not be that hard.

So many more firsts and positives are flowing directly from heart. When something comes from heart, it’s the mother tounge (pardon me for change of language) …….

इतना फैमिली टाइम देखा पहली बार,

लॉक डाउन इतना भी बुरा नहीं है यार।

बेटे को कुछ नया सिखा पाया और दे पाया इतना प्यार,

लॉक डाउन इतना भी बुरा नहीं है यार।

देखी मूवीस, नेटफ्लिक्स सीरीज एंड न्यूज़ अपरंपार,

लॉक डाउन इतना भी बुरा नहीं है यार।

उनसे भी की बात, भूल गए थे जो यार और रिश्तेदार,

लॉक डाउन इतना भी बुरा नहीं है यार ।

बालकनी से पैट्रियोटिज्म परफॉर्मेंस की बहार,

लॉक डाउनलोड इतना भी बुरा नहीं है यार ।

जीवन का उद्देश्य ढूंढने का भी आया विचार,

लॉक डाउन इतना भी बुरा नहीं है यार ।

जियो ऐसे कि जीवन कल खत्म होने वाला हो, की फीलिंग से भी हुआ साक्षात्कार,

लॉक डाउन इतना भी बुरा नहीं है यार।

फौज के बाहर डिसिप्लिन की हुई है बड़ाई,

 लॉक डाउन इतना भी बुरा नहीं है यार ।

Signing off………
