“Coronavirus Pandemic engulfed the globe in its serpentine grip pushed us to seek our limits be known to answer its myriad questions and concerns .
As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps through the world, we must reassess the principles that guide our individual and collective responses and the way we operate in society. In the face of crisis, we must lead with science and humanity.
Call it sheer pauperism or mendicant era, the global pulse is shudderingly beating the head against the walls , see how divine rendezvous thwarted our lanes necked our velvet rosy cots to the tethering withering Topsy-Turvy dichotomy lashed by deadliest knavery.
Our mislaying even unknown to us , our aftermaths battering us recklessly our dogmas discarded us from all knots of fringes.” The author of this article wants to express the urgent need of collective support by people of all walks of life”
“My heart broke
Slit in my corn tinted bangle
My heart broke
What else broke
Shall I see the tenth
This pandemic has been an urgent wake-up call for many high-income countries, as it has brought to the fore the fragility of their healthcare systems, not because their otherwise well-equipped and well-staffed hospitals did not have stockpiles of thousands of ventilators, but because they failed to mount a rapid and decisive response to protect their citizens on a political level. The lack of clear, science-driven guidance, effective testing and early planning to procure the necessary medical equipment despite the mounting evidence that we were facing a global health emergency has been especially shocking in the USA, EU and UK. Despite priding themselves on the power of their respective unions, quality of science and medical expertise, and economic.
With pillow my rattling pain never goes under murkiest shallows but grills my heart , to smash its nest out to the stark reality , human are living with the huge load of arrogance and what else we need ,
Oh lalla , ding Dallas, Stark reality now laying bare most glaring vulnerabilities of our society covid -19- pandemic is catastrophe for infinite lives which are at greater risk.
We must learn right now that this Pandemic is a testimony to our human civilization, it seems unknowingly deceptive entity to bring deluges of catastrophes in order to endangered the human races. Our experience is loaded with all chunks and climaxes to foretell the significance of any disaster but at the same adventure we lack the imagination that something similar can take place on this planet . All those Folktales like the with in the woods and the Anaconda devours cities villages together seems to appear crystal clear anytime and obviously will leave us all in dismay.
This Pandemic has lessons for us all that we need to learn through our experiences , we need the wholeness ragging from a hay man to the human bazookas , undeniable our experience plays an iconic role both positive and negative ,how positive where are caught in a such a situation where we are responsible to determine the future of our existence , our all efforts will be crucial and will enable us to ascertain our changes of survival . Here each individual is responsible for entire race and this will be remembered as the collective experience by humans and for the humans and by golly it will strive this gloomy with the beaming ray of hope. This current pandemic experience taught us that how shall we survive in the future.
By negative experience I mean that since ,this experience is fresh as we haven’t witnessed such gigantic disaster which is toughest trail for us that how to deal with this Pandemic we is briskly becoming contiguous , there appeared tremendous fiasco to stop this transmission despite all technologies and medical miracles which fell flat , although super powers are striving hard in this perspective but time fleets and more people are victimised say it is lack of experience which is taking the huge toll of lives.
Post World War II, the concept of superpowers emerged and the countries were put into various categories based on their economic standards, influential capability, human development, defence powers etc. Many countries have also emerged as new powers in the past decades. But the virus has made certain things very clear and the entire human race needs to realise them at the earliest. Despite power and development, the countries have not been able to curb the pandemic and its spread. Lives have been lost and the people have been rendered helpless in the most developed countries of the world.
The 21st-century is the most advanced phase of humanity in terms of tech. But today we are witnessing that only having technology advancement cannot stop a catastrophe. There are various other things which include some basic principles and simple human behaviour which can prevent devastation.
Today, the most common societal divide that exists between the rich and the poor (famous and non-famous, aristocrat and non-aristocrat, successful and unsuccessful etc) is being mocked by the tiny virus. We have seen various celebrated world figures, political leaders, members of affluent families, and successful personalities being affected by this pandemic. No wealth, lobby or social status has been able to keep this pathogen at bay.
The world has witnessed few pandemics in the past which have taken more lives than the world wars. From 1347 to 1351, the ‘black death’ (Bubonic Plague) killed 200 million people, wiping out 30 to 50 percent of Europe’s population. It took more than 200 years for the population to recover. In 1520, smallpox killed about ninety percent of Native Americans. This tells us about the wrath of the laws of nature and the uncertainty of our existence. The story of humanity revolves around the laws of nature and there is nothing supreme than nature which has been existing for billions of years.
Several interesting instances in the present have taken us back to the basics of life. The virus has taught us many practical things which we had read in books, scriptures etc, and ignored. It has made us work together without any differences and for a common cause. This is the first time we have felt that we as the human race are fighting for our existence against a microscopic organism. We are more aware of our presence on this planet and are being more careful about our survival in the future.
The concept of individual responsibility is thriving and it is a key parameter to move towards success in this mission against the virus. Few basic things like hygiene and personal healthcare being practised by people across the world.
The isolation technique has made us think and look inwards. A sense of gratitude towards life, family members and loved ones is experienced and the bonding with life has grown stronger.
Daily habits, which were lost long ago in the fast-moving pace of work-life and in chasing ambitions, are returning. People have started to cook their own food, clean their house, read their diaries written long ago, share those long-pending stories with their children, call some of their old friends who are stuck in a foreign land, spend quality time with their loved ones, play the guitar which was lying in the corner for months, and do many more things which are dear.
Our world has moved in a direction where insensitivity and irresponsible behaviour had become normal. Socially, we have converted into creatures who are running after what we want and not what we need. This imbalance will lead us to great turmoil, and the present scenario shows us that. The human ego has played a role in this downfall and nature has shown her power time and again.
Let us not portray callousness anymore and stick to the basics which make life easier for everyone. In this critical juncture, let us show positivity, love, and gratitude to the people, who are taking so much pain and risk to get us out from this pandemic.
Let us all be more sensitive, disciplined and responsible which will be a huge support to the Braveheart’s working round the clock to bring the world back to what it was before. Our basic human qualities like the purity of mind and rightful actions can work wonders in this war for our survival. This is note worthy here that our medical and scientific communities, who have been a beacon of solidarity, resilience and action. The doctors, nurses and all other healthcare workers who, faced with unprecedented challenges, are bearing the brunt of this pandemic on the front lines have been nothing short of inspiring. Moreover, despite the fact that the routine research enterprise has come to an abrupt halt, with many laboratories in several countries now closed, researchers have also rallied to fight the pandemic. Scientists from around the world have rapidly diverted efforts toward all aspects of COVID-19 work, from basic biology and immunology to diagnostic testing, vaccines and therapeutic interventions. Volunteers have been offering their skills as part of international collaborations, and shuttered labs have been donating reagents and essential lab and personal protective equipment. Others have been making the most of their digitally confined existence by applying their expertise to parse the rapidly expanding SARS-CoV-2 literature, distilling and disseminating knowledge to other scientists and the general public. If there is a silver lining in this challenging situation, it is seeing this community spirit flourish and also experiencing the shift of an often science-skeptic public, who are now turning to scientists and doctors with renewed trust. It is essential to maintain this renewed focus by the public and governments on science, medicine and technology even after the threat of COVID-19 is addressed.
“Man is the measure of all things,” said the ancient Greek philosopher Protagoras. Setting aside the philosophical debate that surrounds this anthropocentric view of the universe, the message is particularly apt today, when the world is in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each human experience, and by extension each human life, is unique, equally valid and precious. During these tumultuous times, we need to remember this and join efforts to lead with science and humanity.
On contrary to this let venture my doleful tale not long ago but recently my mother a Covid patient was left on God’s Mercy, she was Only Starving for just drops of water to close her eyes , lucky she was somehow rescued by some angelic mercy after she was collapsed in toilet , was left to die there, senses the jinx of untouchable dejection .
Undoubtedly this was the jinx at the face of humanity and further revels the disastrous end of our heath department ,she was battling amid sheer negligence of doctors at helm .
Earlier she was having the traveling history from Mumbai via train here important was to make the train less overloaded with passengers keeping in mind the threat of the invisible enemy”Covid19”
The end is not here but we witness the ding dong battles between the cops and medicos which furthermore triggered the worrisome situations , so time again calls us to stand on a single podium with one dictum to form a strong nexus to combat the pandemic .
In this moment of crisis, the crucial struggle takes place within humanity itself. If this epidemic results in greater disunity and mistrust among humans, it will be the virus’s greatest victory. When humans squabble – viruses double. In contrast, if the epidemic results in closer global cooperation, it will be a victory not only against the coronavirus, but against all future pathogens.
