यह साल / This Year

यह साल भी गुजर गया
कोरोना के नाम
या तो शालीनता से
इसके विदा होने की
बेसब्री से इंतजार करते हुए,
या इसके नए अवतार के
आने के खौफ में…

🦠 🦠 🦠 🦠 🦠 🦠

This year too has passed
in the name of Corona
either hoping against hope
that it would gracefully depart,
or fearing the arrival
of its new incarnation…

–Kaushal Kishore


    1. Yes, we are ready for third wave after learning a few lessons from the second wave, but no facility will be sufficient, if millions and millions will get infected every day.

  1. Judging by the latest news ( the government’s meeting in Delhi), your country and the rest of the world have the same problem that will stay with us for good. It looks that the only solution is to adapt and live with it!

    1. We have seen that after peaks in west, it’s our number. Today our figure (13K) may look minuscule compared to US (465K), France (208K), UK (183K) and Spain (101K), but if the same intensity reaches India, looking to its vast population, there will be havoc, no doubt. But somehow I feel that omicron may be the end of corona. Thank you, Joanna for sharing your concerns and thoughts.


  2. Well…sadly you really hit it on the head Kaushal…We, humanity is caught between hope and fear of the future… as far as Covid goes..and all we can do is do everything we can do as each stage unfolds….and still not lose hope.

    1. Well said, Karima! We have found out ways to survive against all odds. We had never thought of online classes and work from home, but now these are realities, and most of us now feel more comfortable working from home. So hope is always there, if one has vision to see. Thank you for reading and sharing your reflections. Wishing you a very happy and bright new year to you.🎉🎉💐

    1. Thank you Cheryl. Omicron seems to be milder version but spreads fast. I was reading somewhere that it may help develop herd immunity. Let’s see how the things unfold. We simply can pray only 😉💖

  3. Since we are still around today
    There is hope for us to stay
    A little longer than yesterday
    Days pass and so does years
    We live with hope and fears
    We laugh aloud and shed tears
    In the end, we wish ” Happy New Year”
