It’s getting scary

“Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.”

Napoleon Hill

Day 24/30

The covid-19 situation in India is getting scarier by the day. People are struggling to get beds in hospitals, medicines aren’t easily available, test results are taking longer than 2 days, the health care system has broken down, the number of active cases has reached it’s peak, the number of daily cases have crossed all time high. In short, the situation is murky and it’s getting worse by the day.

I don’t want to play the blame game here and try to find out what went wrong. It’s not one single person’s fault. Right now, the situation is so bad that we don’t know how long it’ll take for this dark phase to end. In the last week alone, I must have heard a new case in my contacts (friends and extended family) for every single day of the week. Covid has hit way too close to our home and we are scrambling for safety.

My aunt had been hospitalized because of covid about 12 days back. Initially we were told that she had a mild infection and was stable. As days passed by, her condition started deteriorating. Yesterday, my cousin messaged me saying that she is critical. A shiver ran down my spine, I did not expect this. Most of the cases that I’ve heard till now had a positive recovery rate. I was hoping that it would be the same with my aunt. I took life and the current scenario for granted. I was sure that it would be a mild infection and she’ll be back home soon. Yesterday’s news broke me completely. I am scared. Hoping against hope that she’ll be back hale and hearty soon.

Please don’t take anything in life for granted. We need to be grateful for everything that we have in life. Our time on this planet is limited and very precious. Respond to that message, take that call, listen to those stories, forgive and forget, move past those grudges, don’t let anger and ego ruin any relationship, make time for your loved ones.

Praying that the situation gets better, praying that my aunt gets better.

Please take care of yourself and your loved ones. Eat healthy food, workout, take care of your mental health, wear a mask, stay safe. We are not bigger than this virus.

  1. I got a call from my from my navodaya friend. She says, “ I’m feeling depressed. ” When I checked the reason, she told me her father’s health condition is critical, they’re not getting any help, doctors and. hospital staff refused to admit her father. I tried to convince her. Be positive and strong, I told her.

    I wish I had chosen Biology (science) after 10th. People are not getting support from the govt. Hospitals turned into the businesses.

    I hope everything become normal as before. You too, stay safe, take care.

  2. Pls don’t read these news, u know the situation and about mutations so take precautions and as you said talk everything out with the relatives or close ones, that will be a relief. Reading these news tags will only make it worse, I wish she will get better soon,

    • I don’t consciously try to read news, but this information is everywhere even if we avoid reading it first hand. Also I’ve experienced the issue of hospital bed and medicines scarcity. Two of my closest family members have struggled with it.
