Hello friends, I greet you all with the blissful glimpse of the serene and pristine monsoon sky. Through it, I just want to remind me and you that no matter how dark and ominous the clouds hovering around, they will eventually dissipate and bright blue sky will smile again. Let the majestic sky be the harbinger of the triumph of mankind over the hideous yet invisible enemy!
As a gentle reminder, the war is not over untill the final bugle is sounded. The complacency on our part can be detrimental to the mission and we have to remain on our guards untill it’s accomplished. It’s quite natural for us to be impatient to break the shackles of our homebound isolation. But by turning out in droves in public places and vaccationing without following the appropriate safety protocols of masking up, social distancing and vaccination will weaken our campaign comprehensively.
The past weekend my whole family too, craved for an outing and eating out, yet we decided against it and stayed put at home. As a consolation we ordered food from a well-known restaurant, lighted an aromatic candle and put some fresh flowers in the dining table vase and the ambience was complete with the soft music playing in the background. It was indeed a welcome change in the monotony of our homebound life. We can be as ingenious as can be, to brighten our lives while sticking to safe behavior. This will certainly thwart the further march of the marauding virus.
The premature celebration can push us towards the another wave and we have to prevent that. Let’s be as cautious as we were for some more time, break the chain of infection and the pandemic would become a thing of the past. If we are resolute about it then the virus is bound to be relegated to oblivion. That would be our real and hard-earned victory and we would certainly be free to celebrate our independence in whatever way we want.
Vaccination and responsible behavior from all must be our chekmate stratagem to beat the unholy microbe!!
Wishing you all safety, health and happiness, adieu for now.
