Considering the fierce growth of COVID-19, the lockdown was a quintessential decision because as of now, social distancing and more recently physical distancing has been the most effective preventive measure to break the chain of this highly contagious pandemic. During the lockdown so far, the majority of the populace has followed the norms of the lockdown except few non-serious religious fanatics who couldn’t understand the intensity of the epidemic and the significance of this lockdown, its good outcomes after adherence and the bad repercussions after ignorance. Now, the aftereffect of their ignorance is prevalent as their casual approach has contributed to the rise of the infection across. The situation going forward has left everyone in the dilemma whether the lockdown should be prolonged or to be ended.
Government has been doing its bit bountifully and our people’s PM is also worried about the unforeseen situation and very much concerned about the citizens and the nation. However, this is not enough to fight this deadly pandemic. Government can’t bring any magic alone unless people come together and cooperate with the system. Every Indian need to understand the severity of the situation, come forward and help fight this unprecedented and devastating pandemic by lending a helping hand to the administration, turning the expectation of our PM into reality.
We are going through the crisis, which might have a devastating impact on the economy, bringing multifarious crunch irrespective of sectors, such as joblessness and many more awful situations that we haven’t thought of hitherto. However, despite the looming losses in all counts, the government had announced the lockdown and might be extended as per musings of the latest meeting of the PM with the Union Council of Ministers because there is no way out to check its spread.
How far is too far is the hammering question that everyone is asking. Reminding you of the preamble of our constitution — ‘We the people of India solemnly resolve to constitute India…’ that we are the architect of the destiny of our country. But the larger question is – how will we constitute the India that our forefathers envisioned and for that, we have been diligently working day in and day out without introspection? The people have every rights and power to outshine the destiny of the nation. This time we need to do self-introspection, be self-disciplined and maintain necessary physical distancing to check its spread in the community. This should be people call to auto-action without expecting intervention from the administration.
Self-introspect, awake and fight back with tolerance and discipline — it’s a clarion call for ‘WE THE PEOPLE’! Soon, COVID-19 pandemic is bound to be defeated.
