Out of hand

Covid 19 is out of control in India, and the prevalence of the infection is twice that of the previous year! The situation is terrific to think about what next, as we almost started to walk back on the track of lockdown, with restrictions gripping around. India had crossed a record of 0.2 million per day of covid cases, which is extreme so far and unpredictable further.

Leaving the idiots, who still believe covid is a myth, how come the most being senseless to the pandemic rule of social distancing and masking? But glad to see a development in wearing masks after strict enforcement. And I'm sorry to say, how well did we educate and what kind of awareness we got to behave like deaf and blinds. I'm not to humiliate them, but I write what I thought was that the people who lack some senses are far better than the well-being!

I saw a girl kid in the news bumped on a lady cop for fining her and her father for not wearing the mask in the car, and she was adamant, despite her father's comfort, she told she didn't infect and why should we pay. I don't know should I admire her boldness or worry about her short-tempered attitude at this age of less than 10.

In Cuddalore, district people rush to a hospital to take the covid test, but they don't care about the social distancing or give a thought, what if they aren't infected, the way they throng could stick with the spikes of the corona. I think our days are supposed to be tough ahead, and despite the terrific covid, a lockdown to implement could be a difficult phase to manage on a certain level. On the other hand, the vaccination has picked up speed, and many have volunteered to be vaccinated, which is the only chance we have to survive, and whoever is eligible for the vaccine should not miss the chance.

Beautiful streaks of clouds from a mountain visit a few years back, and it's been two years since I visit the mountains, as well as taking long trips that mostly head to mountains of western ghats. Thank covid for stealing a couple of years from my travel diary.

Sorry to hear that covid is doing some heavy hitting in India. We read about it on our news feed. It's sad that some people just don't get it or don't want to take this virus seriously. We are still waiting to get our vaccine, hopefully it will be before the end of the month.
I love your sky photo, the clouds are interesting to see. Take care and have a good weekend, Jeevan.

Greetings and Salutations! Travel diary of the mountain visit was totally worth it. We haven't been anywhere either. Covid 19 keeps us all home shopping for groceries, medicine and gas. Be safe.

I'm sorry to hear about the heavy toll Covid is taking in India. I hope more people start wearing masks and social distance as they should. I also hope more vaccines will become available for people. It will be nice to travel again.

Wonderful haiku and awesome artwork of our 'feathered friends.'

Ya, we need to get back to the stricter norms we followed a year ago in order to contain the infection. Let's hope we are able to go through this tough phase together, safely.

I have read about the increasing number of covid cases in India and that it is out of control. The girl is bold for the wrong reason. She doesn't understand that wearing mask is for the good of everyone. To be able to win this battle with the virus, everyone has to be responsible and cooperate as a team. Hope the government will be able to reach a good solution to bring down the numbers.
