The fear keeps millions awake at night , what if we are next ?
Created by man himself , directed by political will , this pandemic is a scare ! For the last few decades environment lovers have been shouting from rooftops that the world needs to stop – we were running too fast and too blind . Governments snubbed them , science was busy with research and medicine advanced while humanity shrinked .
Human health is related to social and environment health . How our race survives depends on the well-being and coexistence of our pets , wildlife and livestock . Homosapiens are supreme – this is proving to be a myth because we are the only species which is self destructive .
Biodiversity if only addressed in big international conventions will solely make for good scripts . Air pollution , desertification are potent time bombs humanity is sitting upon ! We don’t care till we can look the other way .
Look what we did to ourselves ! Corona virus is a result of meddling with other species – breaking the balance of habitation and foodchain . Blame it on China this time , what about the future epidemics ? The human race is hell bent on lending a deaf ear ,for, growth and power is the real mantra of the millennium .
Learn we must from this pandemic as helpless we feel without a vaccine , not enough medical strength and a contagious virus to deal with .
Prayer and social distancing are the only answers. While the world markets come to a halt we lock ourselves in our homes and shudder at the thought of catching the virus next . The Universe is at play with us , teaching us lessons not to mess with the animal and plant kingdom . The price of chopping forests , polluting air and water bodies is so heavy that not only us but our next generations might also talk about the quarantine days !
Let us listen to our governments , stay at home and quarantine till the Earth heals itself .
