We always learn many things and come back strong from every catastrophe, right now #CoronaVirus spread has left a devastated effect on the many developed and developing countries of the world and so does on the economy too.
We all know how this epidemic has broadened it’s spread just within the period of 1 to 5 weeks. The govt is already doing its best to contain corona. Govt alone cannot battle this spread without our support!
Jananta curfew is a good decision, it will curtail the spread to a great extent, any actions and decisions to cut the link will be beneficial for our society. Telangana govt’s decision to extend #JanataCurfew to 24 hours is truly commendable, It is great to see organisations reacting early and forcing their employees to work from home. There was a good response from parents when all the schools and colleges were shut down, that’s the real spirit of nation.
Every eventuality will show us how we are exploiting our nature! I was born in the mid-70’s. We are fortunate to see the quality of air, quality of water during our childhood, we drank water from wells, air pollution was out of sight, pesticides usage in cultivation was significantly low. Another important element is “life was not this hectic throwing back to 3 decades”. Every one of us had an ample time unlike these days. Whether it’s a holy place or a recreational spot we feel extremely lucky not to face a massive crowd. That’s how our lifestyle has been scripted by our own way for 2 and half decades. The current epidemic can be taken as a warning sign for all humans for the way we exploited our nature.
However, if we are positive and continuous learners in life, this experience will make all of us stronger by adopting good healthy habits, first one is washing hands frequently and the second one is building immunity. Business leaders will surely adopt all tricks in increasing productivity running organisations within a lesser cost, share markets will stabilize sooner or later. Real estate prices shall get into realistic prices.
We are at the beginning stage of this pandemic, time tells us about how it turns out to be! Many countries are not at all prepared to deal with such massive epidemics. Gladly, Indian central and state govts are fully alert and doing their best to save the lives of our people.
Few acts of responsibility during this apocalypse are, being responsible, being away from social gatherings as much as possible. Be cautious following the best practices published by govt to stop #CoronaVirus spread.
Finally let us not worry too much about the Corona Apocalypse just sit back, take a sabbatical, spend quality time with family, avoid social gatherings, support our govt’s initiatives to break the chain and stop virus spread.
