Who could have imagined a day when humans would be locked inside their homes to let nature enjoy her part? Did we ever predict our days when the fresh air would no longer be under our possession? Could we ever think that we would be imprisoned and restricted to even feel the fresh air in the open freely? Who do we blame today when things un-imagined have become the reality?
Yes, we are imprisoned today- imprisoned by ourselves in fear of our extinction. Even if law won’t force, we are bound to lock ourselves in to save our lives. How do we feel today? Yes, we are all quarantined. And, there is no other way to survive and let mankind survive. We need to make peace with nature now, put ourselves behind the bars and let her enjoy her rights. We must accept this as running away from the truth will not make us free.
Let us accept the truth, let nature heal and we stay in to cope with the threatening situation. Corona is the most powerful weapon today and no ammunition can defeat this. We need only a careful strategy to win over the virus and enjoy our space again in the open air. And, the strategy today is nothing more than social distancing.
Yes, when we had forced nature to distance herself from her properties, we must bear this distance today. We must let the virus fail to affect our lives. We must rise above politics and religion today as no God will come to free you as the almighty is not happy with our deeds. It’s time we prove our love for humanity, stay united though distanced socially to make our space amidst nature, learn from our mistakes and begin a balancing life.
How do we do it? We hate the bars. We hate to be caged but love to cage others. We love to cage the birds and animals but stay frustrated when we are caged today. Aren’t we hypocrites? We wouldn’t agree still, as we are above everyone. Aah! We are humans- the most powerful beings on this earth. Why not prove ourselves to be the most powerful by defeating the tyranny of corona on this earth then? Can we do it?
Yes, we can. But we need to think and act unitedly today. Let us accept the punishment. Let us keep ourselves locked for a period and compensate to give justice to the Nature. Let us maintain social distancing. Let us quarantine ourselves. Let us adopt some mantras to make the best use of this quarantine period.

Stay united, socially distanced, stay in and stay safe!
