A well known fact the COVID-19 pandemic has brought us immense suffering and pain around the world, many people who struggle for a meal during ordinary days in particular those who are daily wage earners. On top of this hard time it may be mentioned that in some states people are facing natural disaster including heavy flood even massive earthquake and political turmoil, over and above COVID-19 pandemic, which is quite an unthinkable situation. The gravity of the situation is not easy to speculate in those areas where one has to experience, a double burden, first the COVID-19 then massive acts of god situation is quite worst for a common people to handle, one may easily get cracked easily both mentally and physically due to all this problem all at a time. However, few people will realise the pain and struggle that one is going through and extend as much help as they could.
Covid-19 has brought immense suffering, pain and even death but this pandemic is unearthing many structural failures, issues and problem in our governance which is being deposited for many years. It is said that in order to create one has to destroy first, the old crumbled namesake government policies, personal interest projects and corrupted government machineries which is running a state like their own play ground, has to be stopped. Now is the time to wake up and fire up, now will be the perfect opportunity for rectification and self realization before it is too late for us to turn back for a fresh start.
It must be a nightmare for most of the people with the problems that are faced amid COVID-19, including financial, medical, manpower, social etc. There is also a problem of political tussle one trying to grasp power from another, trying to fish in troubled waters. It is the least that a common man expects from the leaders that they be enough sensitive to feel the pain and voice of their own people crying out loud for help each passing day. The problem of material existence- Birth, Old age, Disease and Death cannot be counteracted by accumulation of wealth and economic development also. We all are dying one day it is just a matter of time. Leaving the self serving and personal interest behind, we all can work together which will be remembered by the future generations in saving the society from this chaos and misery.
Apart from essential items and wisely prepared SOPs, peoples do also need a proper dedicated medical attentions regardless of whether a patients is COVID-19 positive or not. How can a doctor discriminate and lash out out a patient from a hospital’s access. If this is the situation prevailing in our state there cannot be anything worst than this. Trying to save a life from COVID-19 and losing an innocent life including newly born child’s mother or an expected mother’s life. Patients come with the belief that Hospital is a better and safe place but turns out to be most evil. A woman does not hesitate to cook in the kitchen even during the hottest months of year. Similarly, one should not deviate from his duty.
While thinking of all such unfortunate incident that happens due to the lack of hospital politeness and behaving in an irresponsible manner will surely takes time. In my state after few weeks or month this whole problem will become just a story that will slowly evaporate from our awareness, and the only remains will be in the newspapers and inside an investigation file. It is important to note that law ‘alone’ cannot bring change in society; it needs to be supplemented by other actions. Also collective work culture is a must needed principles in our present situation. Good population in human society is the basic principle for peace, prosperity and spiritual progress in life.
We have to bear in mind that everything has its proper utility, and a man who is situated in complete knowledge knows how and where to apply a thing for its proper utility. In proper applying or discharge of duty, one has to learn to tolerate non-permanent appearances and disappearances of happiness and distress. Most importantly public servants behaving like peoples got no option but to follow our policies and norms will never last in long run. And we should never lose faith in humanity, Humanity is just like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
