I’m sure all of you are familiar with me by now. I’ve been all you could ever talk about for the past few months. My name is Corona. Before you so openly demonize me let me make an open statement that it is not my intention to destroy you guys.
I came into your lives just to make you realise the level of superiority you have bred over the years owing to your advancements in technology, medical science, and business. You began to act like the world spun at your will and began abusing the gifts of nature. It is this very attitude I wanted to nip in the bud.
You pride yourselves so much over the countless missiles and nuclear weapons that you have constructed under the guise of “self-defense”. Tell me, can you destroy me using any one of them? You placed caste and religion above humanity. Slaughtered millions of people for your fanatic thirst. What did I do? I infected the Prince of England and rendered him grappling for a normal life for a few days. Unlike you, I was able to cause the same amount of pain and suffering to everyone. No double standards there!
While you are hiding in your homes calling me the deadly virus, I urge you to take a deeper look at your surroundings and identify the real viruses in the society. I wouldn’t have come had you found and chucked them out in the first place.
All is not lost. Give yourself and your brethren a genuine shot at overcoming social, class and financial inequalities. Make a genuine try to care for all living forms unconditionally. I will leave your lives as though I was never in it in the first place. Give it a thought!
