In these times of social distancing, there’s just one question on everyone’s lips—
When will normalcy return?
When can we get back to our lives? Shall we be able to pick up from where we left and resume again…?
‘TOGETHERNESS’ —Created by the artist Mario Miranda famously known for his caricature art, that depicts a typical scene in a Mumbai local train.
I don’t know. We don’t really have the answers. All I know is that we always took our mundane, routine lives for granted. Up until now. Until COVID 19 hit us and grounded us, like nothing that we’ve ever encountered in our lifetime! The other day someone I know mentioned how things have come to a standstill, everywhere. It isn’t a pause, it’s more like a paralysis, that has abruptly brought everything to a sudden stop.
Now, the one thought that keeps us awake at night is how shall we be able to claim our lives back and return to normal. Will we be able to control the virus from entering our minds? Can we stop feeling fearful, anxious and insecure about our future and that of our children, our parents, our near and dear ones?
And, then, in the midst of all this, suddenly, it has dawned on us how much we’re now beginning to appreciate the very things we’ve either taken for granted or cribbed about! And, so, even though we’re all staying apart, staying within the confines of our homes, we’re eager to be united as one humanity, across all political and social boundaries. Our fears and hopes are the same. We wish for just one outcome—to somehow bring an end to this pandemic.
Today, any semblance of normalcy feels like a dream. Wish we could wake up from this terrible nightmare and realise it was nothing but a bad dream. I’d give anything for that. I bet you’d do too!
