Negatively Positive

Hello everyone! A very good day to all. We all have come to such a stage that we don’t know what will happen next. In India, we call this “Kalyug” which means “the age of darkness”. We don’t have any guarantee that we will live tomorrow or not. What will happen to us in the next phase is totally unpredictable. One such biggest example is this pandemic. I saw a few families celebrating the Covid survivors, while a few families were mourning. Even saw families with horrible shocks of death of their loved ones, one after the other. Prayers for those kids who lost their parents in such horrible situations. Governments are requesting to adopt such kids. But what to do, everyone has their own life. Everyone is still struggling with their job. Everyone’s job is still at stake. In such a situation adopting a kid and maintaining them is a huge budgetary responsibility.

But what’s the positive side of this pandemic? You will be thinking what’s the positive in this pandemic? “Positive” the word itself is negative now. Well, the positive side is that we all started taking care of each other. Started taking care of our health. Even though our eating habits are bad, we still drink decoction to keep our immune system healthy. We also started taking our job critically, and all of the above we came to know the importance of education and examination. Parents now don’t want their children to stay at home and study. They want their kids to go back to school and give proper examinations. If you remember, recently doctors went on strike because they got their MBBS degree but they are still not allowed to start their practice. So what’s the use of achieving the degree? So now, the “Positive” thing is everyone understands each other’s job role to perfection. Everyone is trying to fit in others shoes. 

A few days back, It rained in Mumbai. The winter temperature in Mumbai is 15degree. Mumbaikars find this temperature very cold because we are not accustomed to such weather. Since it’s very humid here, hence if the temperature goes down then we feel like we stay in a snowy area. Such temperatures affect our health. and hence all started giving signs of what coronavirus has. Now almost 9 people in 10 are positive, even if they are double vaccinated.

Whenever there is a new variant, Mumbai is the one who is affected the most. Why? not because we don’t take care of our health but because Mumbai never sleeps and the economy is on a daily basis. Mumbai has lots of street hawkers and we all are dependent on that. Hence without them we are like a handicap. The work life of Mumbai is pitiful and hence we depend on restaurants for our starvation. and hence we Mumbaikars can’t accept if the restaurants shuts due to lockdown. When the 1st lockdown was eased, all the businesses took utmost care of their customers. But now everyone wants business, and everyone wants other businesses to work. So sanitization has taken aback. Now what’s the positive in this? Well, the positive part is that we want “other” businesses to work and hence we knowingly and unknowingly help them to grow their business. and here again, since no proper sanitization hence we are only taking care of ourselves before and after visiting any restaurants or any other place.

One biggest positive side of this pandemic is local sight seeing. Well we all want to visit abroad. But since every country has their own quarantine rule, hence we started exploring our own country. If not a far destination then yes, a local destination. The tourism within the homeland has increased a lot. There were images / news on the internet of overcrowding tourist spots and people without masks. Well, we are the only ones who overcrowd the place and we are the only ones who sometimes say “no” to mask, so no need to point to others. Now here what’s the positive? The positive side is, even though we see that other person is without a mask and yet we “believe” them and “trust” them to not to be corona positive. We meet, we greet, we buy things from people who are without masks just on “trust and believe”.

I find this as the most “positive” and “cutest” thing on earth.

Well, this virus will take more time to breathe it’s last. But I’m sure, we will have a much better vaccine than before and it will be available in every house. Till then, wash / sanitize your hand, wear a mask, stay safe and stay Negatively Positive.
