LET’S FIGHT TOGETHER

Amidst the speculation and probabilities of Covid-19, I am staying home. This nature of this virus is still unknown and there is no definitive cure.

It has taken most of the countries in it’s grip. It has been declared pandemic as it can’t be confined to any boundary as of now.  States imposing curfew and we observe national lockdown for a brief period. Economy slowing down but there is no choice. Economy can bounce back when we stay healthy in a safe environment as health is wealth.

Here I remember an old proverb ‘prevention is better than cure’. Prevention is a choice when there is cure available for a disease. It becomes the only option in the absence of a cure. In present situation we can stay safe only with prevention. So, we must take every measure so as not to be caught by the virus.

There is a need to adopt healthy living standards and do better financial planning for next few months. This virus has the ability to multiply itself and live for a long period even on a non living body like a metal surface.

It can catch any healthy person when the person is exposed to the surrounding environment of already infected people in close proximity. That’s the reason we are now listening terms like quarantine and social distancing.  So, we have to protect ourselves by keeping good distance from such environment.

Let’s understand social distancing well.
This is not to hate people in our neighborhood or treat them as untouchables.  This is high time to become more social than ever before to be in sound mental health alongwith all other fellow human beings. The only need is to keep ourselves in a safe environment and it’s possible when we make the distance required.

To enable this we should stop visiting neighbours and discourage guests coming home at present. This is because the chances of infection are more in a crowded place as we are not aware of the person standing next to us if already infected. It is important to keep in mind that the symptoms of infection do not appear well at first and the infected person may appear very normal in the initial days. So, we may get caught before we actually know about the infected environment unless we keep the distance. So, prevention here is the only option.

There is no restriction on use of social media and phone calls as the virus doesn’t spread using this medium. In fact we should use digital media and all long distance mode of communication staying at home to keep in touch with our dear ones. They need our support. Let’s don’t hate pet animals. They too need our support.


This is family time and we are having great time together. I urge you too do the same with your family. This is challenging time for children and the guardians too. School going children are forced to go in summer vacation in advance. This vacation is going to last for a long time now. In this period we can’t take them outside to public places like children’s park. All sort of entertainment and refreshments has to be inside the boundary wall of our home now. We have to be more innovative how to spend quality time with them at home.

Let’s keep faith and have trust on the system. We will win this battle with a responsible and more disciplined living. Our prayers will not go in vein. Let’s stop all experimentation and try to preserve nature as it was before and naturally created by God. This time will pass and we’ll experience better time in future.

HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY !

“एक स्त्री”

जब बच्चों की नादानियाँ न थम रहे हों,
बापू की डाँट से बचने को वो सहम रहे हों,
तब ममता की छाव लिए जो पास आये, एक स्त्री।

जब चंदू खूब शैतानियां ढा रहा हो,
अपने बंधु से ही हाथापाई कर आ रहा हो,
तब पड़ोस की आंटी से जो बचाये, एक स्त्री।

जब खिलौनों की मनसा मन ही मन उमड़ रही हो,
स्वाती अपने भाई से माँगने को लड़ रही हो,
तब इक खिलौना नया जो पास लाये, एक स्त्री।

जब स्कूल का कार्य अधूरा रह रहा हो,
मास्टर रोज़-रोज़ शिकायतें कर रहा हो,
तब एक अध्यापिका जो घर-घर हम पाएं, एक स्त्री।

जब राखी का पर्व मिठाईयां ला रहा हो,
चंदू, स्वाती से स्नेह बंधवा रहा हो,
तब उसे फ़र्ज़ का पाठ जो पढ़ाये, एक स्त्री।

जब चंदू जवानी का पायदान चढ़ रहा हो,
और लड़का-लड़की में फर्क समझ रहा हो,
तब दोनों…

ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT

It has always been a controversial social issue whether death penalty is a need or not for any crime.

I have little personal views on this topic. At present we have this provision for heinous crimes when the convicts under trial are found guilty of the crime.

We need to think how liberal can we be to either forgive or punish someone for a crime. The primary cause behind any crime is false education and lack of values. When people live a life not well connected with others in society they tend to develop criminal mindset as pain of others don’t affect them. They live and die for their own amusement.


Few tend to feel they are more powerful than others and what if they do something extraordinary that average people can’t think of. They can always find an escape route. They misuse when they don’t know the real use of power.

The purpose of any punishment should be to bring change in society. Change in our thoughts and action. We may look at change in others but the convicts are not allowed in this case. There is no scope for them to change and come back to society again. Have we started believing some people can’t be changed at all.

People with a criminal state of mind tend to be more inhuman by nature these days. They sometimes commit a crime to have fun without any thought of the outcome of their madly action.

With capital punishment the scope for change is shrinking and intolerance increasing leading to a more inhumane society. While some may see it as an example for others to guard themselves and not even think of committing such a crime, in reality we observe little change in society with the attitude of people. Fear factor may not work well all the time.

People these days demand punishment and they feel happy when government fulfills their demand. I don’t understand well if it’s to give justice or under pressure. They demand to put an end to another life that caused great pain to their lives. As an outcome the possibility of false encounters can’t be ruled out.

Inhumanity at rise and government feels pressure while making decisions. As citizens we need to respect a decision and should have no say in judicial matters. Media here has great responsibility not to provoke people.

There are many constraints now because of the mindset of people and the way we have built our society that prevents us thinking about any historic decision for sustainable social change. We grew ourselves up and developed that mindset over a brief period.

We have to think seriously now whether time has come or not. When I started thinking about this sort of punishment I went back to history and read what great personalities had to say about it. Below are few of the thoughts from great indian orators as it is published in the “penguin book of modern Indian speeches…”
