“All the world’s a stage And all men and women merely players”
As Shakespeare quote says, now we are all like puppets in the hands of nature and we are at the stage of not able to predict what is tomorrow?.
In the existing scenario, rich is always rich, poor becomes very poor, some people don’t get even a piece of bread to eat and the remaining don’t know how to survive. In a state, at one corner death ratio is increasing due to this deadly corona virus, at the other corner physicians and practitioners are struggling to save people but at some other corner no one is affected. We cannot simply cross this without wondering the role of nature here.
In this world, almost most of our lives are covered by the dark clouds in the name of corona and every one of us wants to see single sunrays as a sign of positivity and hope. But in contrast, it acts as a boon to our nature. Due to this lethal virus and its consequences (lockdown), nature gets its space, repairs itself and restores its beauty again.
The ozone layer is healing itself more than expected. In many countries like India, China, Italy and so on there is a dramatic reduction of air pollution, said Fie Liu, Air pollution Researcher at NASA. Not only that, our water resources become clear. Dolphins comes out and make it as their playground, swans are swimming happily in Venice canals as water traffic and pollution get reduced. In Punjab, at Jalandhar district people could see the mountain ranges with naked eyes located 213 KM away from their place. It doesn’t need any evidence to prove the quality of air. Moreover, in every place we could hear birds’ sounds more than before.
Has it started now?
No, it is always there, we failed to notice all these things as we were very busy in our routine mechanical life. All these things are not new things to get surprised. This is the real quality of our nature. We are the one who spoiled all our natural resources. In past, people lived along with nature. In all their ways nature took a part. Nature bound with our culture and tradition even from housekeeping to medicines.
The present state is very pathetic and the current generation is totally far away from nature. They are not even ready to be closed with their family members also. Now everything changes. Family members join together at home and spend time together. Many children come to know the desires, expectations and inner thoughts of their parents. Definitely they can understand the strength of the family relationships and their bond towards each other spiritually and emotionally.
Changes occur all over the world in all aspects. We start to follow many of our traditional and cultural way of living. And we could see humanity among many people; they offer food and essential things to the needy people. A team of practitioners from Cuba and China went to Italy and Iran respectively to provide their time being support. Some factories offer free masks and sanitizers too.
It’s a sign of unity among us as one against the battle of combatting the deadly virus. All these things just remind us where we lost? What we have done? What we have to do? Though people are suffering a lot, we could see a lot of positivity among people and in nature.
As a whole the world is healing!!
To make us realise, does God play this ‘play’?
