In the pre-Covid-19 era,
Already there were concerns
Regarding too much of exposures to screens
TV, Computers, iPads, mobile,…
And their likely consequences.
Out of many, one of the repercussions of the Covid-19
Has been the many fold increase in ‘screen time’
Work from home, communications, webinars, even entertainment…
With many of our activities going online,
This new way of life,
Unfortunately being misconstrued as …

The chaos
Covid-19 and the havoc thus created.
The world seems to be in fragments
Physically, socially, economically, psychologically…
Palpable uncertainty, uneasiness, anxiety, nervousness, … all over.
Different models are emerging to deal with the situation
Some celebrated, some pre-maturely celebrated and some condemned.
The approach at times is clueless, callous and even criminal.
There is …

Various information channels are flooded with mis-information
Ranging from alternative remedies to phishing attempts.
Surveillance apps under the guise of tracking the disease,
Information perpetuated by vested interests,
And worse, stigmatization of the infected
And criminalization of the vulnerable.
The damages …

The Herd and the Immunity
As many have emerged as heroes
Especially the professionals
Working with great dedication and commitment for their work
In the field of health care and other essentials services,
There are a few who seem to have used the coronavirus crisis

And further their authorities and control
Almost all across the globe.
It …

And over 1,27,000 infected,
Countries struggle to contain it.
The World Health Organization declares it a pandemic.=

Novel Scare

COVID-19 has spread
All across the globe, almost.
With over 4000 death counts
And over 1,27,000 infected,
Countries struggle to contain it.
The World Health Organization declares it a pandemic.
This is unprecedented.
Along with the health crisis, the world economy is in a quandary.
A time for self-isolation, if needed
But to collaborate and support each other, surely.
A global crisis looms large.

The sky is red
As the summer sets in Australia,
The country especially New South Wales,
Is engulfed with bushfires.
Some reports suggest
27 death so far and many lost their homes,
Millions of hectares of land burned,
Half a billion animal affected,
Potentially millions of them died,
One third of koalas killed,
Even some species …

Hope and wish
Another economic slowdown?
Yes, if we go by the recent International Monetary Fund (IMF) alert,
Which downgrades the growth to 3 per cent for 2019.
This is said to be the worst in last decade.
This is happening primarily due to decline in manufacturing activity,
And also because of US-China trade conflicts,
Higher …

Gasp Chamber
With air quality at dangerous level
This time around air pollution in Delhi
Led to health emergency.
Several desperate measures were taken,
Banned on construction activities,
Plying of vehicles with odd-even numbers on odd and even dates
Schools closed for few days,
Alas! not with desired results.
The Supreme Court of India fumes,
Governments scramble for actions, politicians blame each other,
And the saga …
