A COVID-19 Monologue And A Human Response

It seems I was born unexpected and uninvited.
My parents were hesitant to accept me.
But today I am known to everyone.
I masked the entire globe
I locked the doors of all religious mentions that minted money
I blocked all celebrations of the prodigal children
I made the world understand that the globe is ‘OK’ without humans
I made the wild animals leave their wilderness –
And enjoy the parks of humans.
I found happiness in transforming the warring crowd under the same roof into family that prays together
I know I am considered the devil of the millennium.
I doubt, was my gene meant for a genocide?
You man can’t defeat me, unless you defeat your ego, false pride;
For vengeance is the venom in your veins
And you forgot you are but one of the creatures.
You licked the shoes of science
And believed you could move mountains, sans faith!
And you assisted me in destruction.
However I know there is still light glowing in the darkness
Your hope against hope will make you happy one day
And that day will be a blessed day, when the first man will successfully be vaccinated and I hear my death knell.

COVID-19 Pandemic – Trial for human survival

This covid-19 pandemic has been a time of trial for human survival, to put in a better way, survival of the safest. It has been a time when life turned out to be more important than everything else. Even when schools and colleges were shut down, the virtual classrooms opened new horizons of hope. The terms like Lockdown, Quarantine, Isolation and Containment have been sufficient enough to bring new meanings to our life, new hobbies and new culture. We began to find happiness in the little things around us. I think the greatest lesson that we have learnt is that life is a gift, rather the most precious one. Everyone is ready to forgo and forget when it comes to threats to life.

Important lessons learnt from COVID-19

Another important lesson that we learnt is, that there is still hope in humanity. There are still very many good people around us ready to share their time, roof and purses for someone somewhere in need. During these times of trials, homes turned to be places of worship for all religions. I believe that time will cure every wound inflicted by this pandemic on humanity. I have the faith that the whole universe would become a family, loving, sharing and living, leaving the barriers of caste, and creed. religion, race, and ethnicity. I too believe that the dreams of the blooming buds of my generation would definitely shine and share the fragrance of greatness and goodness. Of course, it is my strong faith that it too shall pass and new sunshine will awake when my generation will be vaccinated against it and Covid-19 defeated.
