Human life across the globe is completely disturbed due to coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and millions of people have nothing to work upon to earn their basic needs. We humans, irrespective of one’s cast, creed, region and religion, are hit by the worst economic crises as the whole world has come to a halt.
Facing tremendous hardships and challenge to survive fighting coronavirus as well as the economic crises, is what we all are facing, or have to take on in near future.
Usually a person earns and feeds his dependants, besides takes care of other financial needs of his family. No matter how hot or cold the weather is and how hard the conditions are, a hard earner never stops. But the current scenario has pushed even these hard earners to depression and mental trauma.
The question here arises that despite high tech medical technology and latest gadget invention, we are yet clueless about how to control and curb this deadly devastation. This invisible enemy has taken precious lives of millions of people across the globe and is still an uncontrolled deadly devastation we all are facing. So all the responsibility lies on our conscience.
The fight between health and wealth goes on and we can’t let our lives end while following economic betterment. The decision to be made by us is to see our priority and no doubt “Jan Hai to Jahan Hai” applies to us all.
We have to have our health and life to keep on top priority. Once we are determined to save our life, wealth will surely come back our way and that is waiting to see our life survives. So it becomes obligatory for us to abide by all the health advisories and to follow SOPs as issued by the health experts and the concerned authorities.
Remember, we can earn, travel and enjoy life tomorrow only and only if we manage to beat coronavirus and survive today. Wearing a face mask and keeping social distancing is neither a sin nor a crime, so what are we ashamed or embarrassed of?
