As of this time of crisis, needless is to explain what we are talking about here. Covid-19 has come up as the most infectious bug of the century, destroying lives all over the globe. Something that didn’t hold any identity a few months back is now a power destroying the most powerful nations. What does this suggest? Does it suggest that God suddenly became angry with the mankind for making so much damage to the earth, or is he trying to teach something that we may have forgotten?
Try to recall what our school Moral Science books mentioned. “Everything is transitory”. No one is always powerful and no one possesses the immortal potion. Both good and bad time pass. And this time has made the superpower of the world, America to bend its knees in front of a bug. The country of one’s dreams is now an epicenter for deaths! All that money that people have been “saving” is actually useless except for buying food and necessities. In this hour, everyone is equal in the true sense. The rich, the poor, the middle class, the Hindus, the Muslims, the Christians, the Sikhs – everyone is equal. Unlike people like us, Corona does not discriminate between the powerful and the suppressed.
In this time when we are in our homes, let us try to think of it this way. What if we are being put to a test! That’s right, a test to check if humanity still exists or is there any brotherhood left in this world to survive the adversities together? Can we aid our needy brothers and sisters? Helping the impoverished and sticking together never makes anyone poor. Our actions now are being recorded in the pages of history. So we have to do something in order to make things right and be an inspiration for the future generations.
Even when being equal, we are still better off than some people out there namely, the poor and the underprivileged. And we must do our bits to protect them. If things get worse, these will be the first to be hit in terms of medical treatment. And so we have to stop things from further deterioration. As is rightly said, “When there is a will, there is a way”. So what may be the ways by which we protect the world? First and foremost, stay at home with your families. Perhaps this is the time when we can make up for our absence and negligence towards our families as work was always a priority. Secondly, video call if you miss your friends rather than initiating to meet them. We assure that this discipline will soon end the crisis.
Third, along with the government there are many NGOs like ours who are tirelessly working for the well being of the underprivileged by being on the ground. Do support them and donate if you can. And last but not the least, take care of yourself. Maintain proper hygiene and eat well. If this is actually a test, let us make sure that we pass it with flying colors. Let us all stick together (maintaining social distance, of course) and make sure we win this war. Even after this is over, lets pledge to make earth a better place to live. You are not alone. We are all in this together. Take care and stay safe.
P.S. ‘I Am Still Human’ is an NGO dedicated to the welfare of the society and nation which primarily works for the welfare of the Underprivileged people, Indian Army and Women Empowerment. At present, we are working for the welfare of the underprivileged by providing them with free food and medical supplies in this Corona Virus crisis for which we are raising funds. We appeal you to contribute to this noble cause. To donate, please go through the link provided.
