The Myth of Loneliness

Before the fear of death, nothing seems more pertinent.

Corona Virus or COVID-19 has swept across the world starting from China. Right now, it keeps on invading all parts of the world.

There is hope in this bleak situation but it is still heart-wrenching.

In this world, where everything has to happen in a split-second, things have come to a standstill.

We have been confined into our own homes like trapped mockingbirds yearning for the sky.

Usually, we imprison the nature. Right, the reverse is happening.

After such a long time, today I could hear the melody of nature rather than the cacophony we have created in our lives. No vehicles, no people on roads.

If you look outside the window, the world seems calm while our hearts are not.

Loneliness has crept up to us like the reapers from Hell, but still there is hope.

Its time to see the world not through the scope of time but through the scope of observing its beauty. It is time to relax. Not everything has to happen in a second. Nature is patient, so should we be.

Like everything good or bad in life, this shall too pass.

Be thankful that you and your family are safe.

Start looking at the world like it should be seen and not be ignored because you were getting late for office.

It is time to see rather than look.

Because, that is what will defeat the myth of loneliness.
