A journey from Wuhan to ………… setting a path to find the life. Life is one of the precious elements on this earth and COVID-19 is testing the time to bring life back on track. It is true that Man is leading the way of living, however, it’s nature who control the momentum. A lesson learned that Human is costing a life of a Human, that’s the story of Wuhan to …. left a challenge for the world.
CORONA virus also known as COVID’19 , originated from a local district in China named Wuhan. This virus is rapidly gripping the whole world, within no time about 120 nations impacted badly due to COVID-19. Leaving everyone in a deep shock it has already claimed more than 11K lives and has affected close to 2.7 lakh people. Intriguing point is that even the most developed nations are struggling to cope with this COVID’19 like European nations (Italy, Spain, France), China and the United States.

Irony or Destiny
This virus is contagious there is no doubt about it, the question is are we learning the lesson that nature wants us to learn.
– Are we responsible enough to tackle this pandemic?
– Are we evolved enough to go through this ordeal?
This virus is challenging whole humankind irrespective of gender, religion, caste, sex or country. Yes, it’s a reality, though hard to imagine in this 21st century the way we are struggling to fight with COVID-19 is a little strange.
Here big question is how to tackle the present scenario, somewhere I personally feel that answer lies in “HINDUISM”. A famous Sanskrit hymn says “Vasudhaiva Kuntumbhakam” means the whole world is a single family. And yes, the answer lies here, we need to fight this virus together. We all are affected by this and we all need to fight this virus-like a family fights in a situation of crisis.
- Be safe by keeping in Isolation.
- Avoid the infection by keeping good hygiene conditions.
- Keep your immune system to fit enough.
- Say no to non-Veg diet, the human body is not suitable to consume non-veg stuff.
COME WHAT MAY & Go Inside
So another way of fighting this virus is to take this crisis situation as a way to evolve. When I say evolution, I am mean to go beyond human compulsions of the continuous cycle of life. It’s a great opportunity for each and every individual to introspect and explore their inner core. Just a thought, what would happen :
– If the whole world population i.e 7.7 Billion people meditate. Just imagine, how much collective consciousness will increase in the world.
Here nature is giving us a sign to turn inward and become a more calm and peaceful race. Also as it’s a situation like never before in the 21st century. It’s an opportunity for us to push our limits and invent something out of the box. Most of us are witnessing a pandemic first time in our life, it may the first pandemic of the 21st century, the world already went through such kind of experience in the past:
|1920- present||HIV /AIDS||>3,20,00,000|
|1969||HONG KONG FLU||1000000|
‘A LOOK BACK ‘
It’s a time to look back at our ancestral practice of “NAMASTE “, now the whole world is looking towards BHARATA it’s rich heritage and culture, what can INDIA offer to the world in this crisis situation. I have a firm belief, only BHARATA can show “THE WAY”. I would just like quote a famous poem “KEEPING QUIET” by renowned poet PABLO NERUDA
KEEPING QUIET by Pablo Neruda (Curtsey: www.awakin.org)
will count to twelve
and we will all keep still
for once on the face of the earth,
let’s not speak in any language;
let’s stop for a second,
and not move our arms so much.
be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines;
we would all be together
in a sudden strangeness.
in the cold sea
would not harm whales
and the man gathering salt
would not look at his hurt hands.
prepare green wars,
wars with gas, wars with fire,
victories with no survivors,
would put on clean clothes
and walk about with their brothers
in the shade, doing nothing.
want should not be confused
with total inactivity.
Life is what it is about;
I want no truck with death.
were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death.
Perhaps the earth can teach us
as when everything seems dead
and later proves to be alive.
Now I’ll count up to twelve
and you keep quiet and I will go.
My dear friends, it’s time to ensure that everyone to be safe by keeping our-self in isolation to avoid a situation of community spread of COVID-19.
