31st day of Lockdown

My precious little bun, 

Writing to you today as the first ray of sunrise falls on me from the window and inspires me to not succumb to the current circumstances. That’s the power of Mother Nature, she is a mother and takes care of us like her own children despite what we do to her. 

This is the 21st letter I am writing to you my child and when I began writing to you early this month, I really hoped I shall be able to share some good news with you in so many days but unfortunately, I have none for you so far except for the belief that things will soon get better and 

until that day we will not leave the side of hope

until that day we will still smile and suck in the tears welled up in our eyes 

until that day we will try to become the better versions of ourselves 

until that day we will not lose our patience 

until that day we will learn a new skill or re-ignite our dormant passion

until that day we will support each other beyond our abilities 

until that day we shall daily seek apology from Mother Nature for our mistakes 

until that day we will self introspect and feel closer to our roots 

until that day we will  practice gratitude towards the corona warriors 

Until that day we will feed as many poor, hungry and stray as possible 

Until that day we will optimize the resources we have and not waste even a tiny morsel 

Yes, until that day, we will fight and fight will our might.

Never ever had any one of us imagined we will face something like a global pandemic in our lifetime. It used to be more of a thing in our history books. But that’s what life is all about, it has proved to us time and again that it is supreme and the only power which has control over what will happen in our lives. We are mere puppets in its hands and act as it commands. Some call this uncertainty, the spice of life but at the present, it feels like an albatross around our neck.

The time has come for each one of us to invoke our inner power with a pure heart and connect with the higher power above all of us to grant us a solution now before it gets too late. Tell her to see how the entire world, almost the whole of Europe and America have crumbled under the #COVID19 when they had the best medical facilities in the entire world. 

What shall happen to developing countries of Asia like ours if the community transmission happens, is unfathomable. We terribly lack the infrastructure to aid 135 crore people medically, a large chunk of whom live below the poverty line but we do possess a deep faith in you our supreme power. History is a witness that wherever things have gone beyond our hands, we the tiny mortals have turned to you to come to our rescue. So my child, once again we are raising our hands to the supreme power above to come to aid us and until that day we are facing the brunt of this man-made misery.

Yes, you heard me right, if news channels are to be believed, it is suspected that Corona is a man-made virus developed in a lab at Wuhan in China and got accidentally leaked from there and has caused such mass-scale destruction all over the world including Wuhan which has now come back to life but the majority of the rest of the world still can’t. Honestly, I am not sure how true this is but if it is, it is really very sad and makes me angry as the price that we are paying is too huge for that error. They have deprived us of our portion of open blue skies and fresh air and have locked us up inside our own houses. 

Oh, Lord! Please forgive them and give the scientists of the world some magical talisman to create the cure and vaccine of this deadly virus at the earliest. Until that day we will pray to you with all our heart to forgive us our sins and illuminate our path ahead with your wisdom. 

I just wrote today whatever came in my mind as I am too overwhelmed by the current situation, thus, I leave it upon you to gain your lesson from this letter my child. Sometimes there is a lot written between the lines, I wish you develop the maturity to grasp that knowledge. 

Always be a good human being who works to help others and not destroy them. 

Take care, my little love
Your Granny
