Today, we wish there were more doctors, more hospitals, more nurses and ward boys and other health workers. We search desparately for vegetable and fruit vendors and those small grocery stores in our neighborhood. We are happy when we see the cleanliness workers come daily. When we see the police we feel safe.
Today, we are not bothered which filmstar’s movie is held up, we are not bothered what exercise they are doing at home, neither are we bothered that the sportsmen are sitting at home.
We are not bothered whether the malls, with their expensive shops, are open or not.
We can manage with our current mobile, we don’t look forward to the newest model to buy and flaunt.
We see that the Indian industries are being philanthropic and really looking to contribute to the nation whereas the international brands, which we swore by, are nowhere to be seen and are waiting it out, waiting for the day when Indian citizens can again loosen their pursestrings.
Though we were the reason for many the animals and birds getting extinct, today when we see some of them reclaiming their space in the cities and towns, we feel most excited.
We wake up to clean skies and clear air and appreciate the ability of Mother Earth to rejuvenate herself.
However, once this passes, will we forget all these things and go back to being as foolish as before and start doing the same things over again.
I think that’s what we will do.
What do you think, friends?
