May 4th and phase 3.0 lockdown begins for next few weeks not knowing how long & how far it will go; however one thing is certain that Covid 19 pandemic will go down in the history of mankind as one of the most feared enemy that has surfaced from nowhere, cannot be seen or heard but as lethal as black cobra bite (is it going to be the cheapest weapon that will replace our defense armory?).
Science has progressed world over in all its frontiers with phenomenal pace in last few decades with each country invading space and galaxies in the hunt for another planet with life without realizing that our knowledge is just good enough to be the tip of an iceberg, there are mysteries that surround us multifold on earth itself, we can produce supersonic that travels with lightning speed but have failed miserably in understanding the behavior of a tiny virus called Corona, that navigates itself without any external source of energy, mutates itself and survives to multiply with lightning speed of supersonic, yes we can definitely learn from Corona, an un-parallel warrior of its own kind.
Indeed the whole humanity is getting geared up all over the world to defeat this sudden biological attack on the human race and may have partially succeeded in controlling its fast pace but still, there is a long way ahead before life will turn back to normalcy as it was before February 2020,(a month that will go down in history as a turning point in human history) or perhaps it will never be the same again……..Yes, it will never be the same again & why because there is going to be an unmitigated change in the policies of the government, research direction, economic aspirations and above all the human behavior (this is going to be unpresented world over) which is going to be an un-analogous to any fiction that we have ever seen on the big screen. Now we have to move with a mask, maintain social distancing, keep sanitizer handy and be suspicious the moment we hear sneezing or coughing close to us.
Human touch that was the most precious of all seem to have lost in thin air, Yes life will never be the same again because even if we discover a vaccine for Corona there will be another one to challenge us; perhaps in a different form, shape and altogether in a different way….again from nowhere, yes we need to be prepared for that unknown, unseen, unheard before it strikes again & that needs deep digging more than ever before.
Defense budgets, which earlier outcasted many other budgets will perhaps be the last in the list of many countries as now we do not need all those precision weapons we developed so passionately.
Now the focus will be on hygiene, sanitation, human health and all the wellness activity that can strengthen our body mechanism good enough to fight such bio- attacks of unknown spaces, more than ever before. Our medical science has done wonders in protecting human race kidney, liver, heart, lungs and even brain transplant has shown miraculous results, their approach in saving human life has been commendable, and even today they are trying hard to save those infected with coronavirus, some have won but many have lost their life against this deadly virus, Yes it is a challenge that nature has given to mankind just to be alert as there will be more in future, we have lock downed animal kingdom and nature has lock downed human race, it’s like a game of chess wherein all the kings, queens and pawn are checkmate by mother nature, it’s time we counter this move or perish and accept defeat, no that will never be accepted and we will come out winning this game, sooner or later but definitely with a changed environment. Nano seems more powerful than mega and hence the power of Nano needs to be on the forefront to save and flourish back with more, is going to be the new mantra for survival.
