Are We Willing To Heal

Are We Willing To Heal

They say Earth is healing! I ask why Earth has to do this much harm to heal. Of course, we know the answer but we will not agree much on that. We are the reason; yes we all are the reason.


We were making endless mistakes, right one after the other. Remember when you cut those thousands of trees, all together, saying we need a home to live. Population density is high, so we have to move to the countryside. Did we ever think that we are sharing this planet with other species as well? The trees, the birds, the animals went through the same pain that we are going through now. They were attacked by us around the globe all at once.


The birds, mammals and animals lost their home, their family was under arrest of our decisions. We were taking all the decisions for all the species, how they will live if they are allowed to live. We were hunting them, eating them, beating them and hurting them with loads of carriage while they had wounds. We were deciding will they be living in Zoo, at our home, or in a cage.


Forget about other species, we lost sympathy for our fellow human beings. We disrespected women, raped her, saw her as a sex object. We were doing child trafficking, child labour, bullying. We were doing corruption, we were robbing, we were killing innocent people for money, we were faking marriages, we were using every unfair means to reach a status. I never understood this human psychology,if you do please let me know in comments.


 The rich were treating poor like a pet, oh not they give more love to their pets. I know somebody who worked as the head of a very good non-profit organization, her dog was wearing the mask while she was in an argument with her maid for 100 rupees, saying she worked for 25 days. I just hope the equations would change after this pandemic. The second thought that comes to my mind is to punish the people who did wrong with others.


 I saw people behaving indifferently because they had to live at their home. I wonder why people can not live at their own place with all the comfort. I also noticed that people who have nothing rarely complain but extremely rich people complain that they can not live without going for a walk, without salons and spas. Then there is another section of society that cover 200-300 KM distance by walking just to reach their place without having anything to eat.


If self-discipline had been there, the police officers would not have been attacked. What do you think which specie should be caged in the zoo? I feel few Homo sapiens deserve that place more. There are so many attacks on police officers who are convincing people to stay home for their own self for their own family. I wonder if such people ever went to educational institutes, they are not able to understand any language. Also, do they ever loved their own family? I doubt.


The doctors and health service providers are left to face death and terror every day. And for all the years cricketers, film actors, and singers have been applauded. The Earth is showing us our diplomatic personality. Now, we are pleading to doctors to save us but we always do charity at temples. Though few religions have been providing meals to the needy where are others, for which the Supreme Court was knocked for justice. All these questions are thought-provoking but we are rigid we will keep believing what we have been doing. Anyways, it's okay if you have strong faith in your thoughts but please don’t tie other people in its shackles.


My mother and I have not stepped out for more than 2 months but our neighbours, the aunties no matter how educated they are; they can’t survive without gossip, I discovered this. I love my mother more for never been an aunty, she is not only me and my brother’s best friend but of our friends, friend as well. I’ll tell you about an incident, so the aunty next to our door was saying something when my mother was watering plants. My mom is very soft-spoken and gentle so I knew it's me who should punch that aunty with words. She turned to the other side of our joint wall as soon as she saw me but I had this anxiety and anger in me. With love, I wished her and then when she replied I said, I heard you saying we are too afraid to come outside. Yes, we are but you will never understand because none of your family members is COVID warrior, they are not the front-line workers who are constantly facing the terror. My father is one of them and we don’t come outside for you all. I fell pity for these COVID warriors, they are at risk for people like you, for people who can’t do without gossip, for people who use this disease to take some kind of revenge from other religion, for people who are retired from high posts but they will not support. For them, a morning walk along the lake is the Sanjeev bhuti, alas!


Damn, I felt so good but my mother felt embarrassed because its against moral values, side effects of belonging to a good family in this weird world. I never saw that lady outside again and I was worried if she is fine. I knocked at her window with a spoon and she came. I realized beta whatever you said is true, we all must understand the gravity of the situation.


I believe my words would hit your head hard and you might save everybody near you by changing your lifestyle. I might sound bitter but I’m upset too to look around and see how inhuman we have been. I’m frustrated how crazy we have been for money and status. I’m mad at people who choose their friend circle by seeing at their job profiles. Soon, you all are going to be jobless and feel how bad it feels to have no job then there are people like you who stop picking up the calls because they have nothing to offer you or they degrade your status as they can not afford branded bags and clothes. Stop it people please stop it. Earth has given one last chance, be human and restart your life with good thoughts and moral values.
