The present time is very special and we are in a very crucial phase of our history. It is as if we are fighting World War 3 now. It has already taken more than eleven thousand lives. But this time, it is different from previous world wars on many accounts.
Firstly, the entire globe is involved. There is no choice left to any country which it can exercise about going to war or not. You have to fight for the survival of your people.
Secondly, we are fighting an invisible enemy. The enemy, a tiny virus, not visible by, the eye can be anywhere, deceiving us, hiding inside the sinus cavity of some ordinary person engaged in his/her routine activities like commuting to the office/place of business or education, purchasing grocery, clothes or gadgets, traveling, etc.
Thirdly, although the enemy is not very lethal, it is new and no vaccine is available for it as of now. So, even if it is detected, the treatment is doubtful.
Fourthly, it is contagious and spreads very fast. The speed of its spread is really very fast, perhaps beyond our imagination. Touching a doorknob of a lift or cab or bus or train, the screen of your mobile, the fruit/vegetable or grocery you purchased from a departmental store or opening a package received through a courier are enough for the virus to go inside your sinus cavity and then making you a virus factory producing and spreading the virus everywhere.
Fifthly, this unique war is being fought by all the nations of the globe at one side and virus on the other side. The entire human race is in danger. We have temporarily forgotten our differences and become a team. This team has got China/ Russia & America, India & Pakistan, Iran & Iraq, Israel & Palestine at the equal ground not opposite each other.
East & West, right & left, husband & wife, boss & subordinate, client and business person are not business rivals now, they are one team. This is the state of yog(a)- the best possible state possible where the flow is through neutral Sushumna Nadi in place of ida & Pingala (positive & negative).
But this is the state of death also. the enemy is smart and killed many of our most vulnerable assets- 'the old people with medical conditions'.
Is the sacrifice made by the old generation is enough or enemy will be able to claim substantial young & healthy lives too? How long will this war last?
Whosoever will survive this war, will be a part of the new generation with stronger immune system and smarter ways of living life and doing business. After all, we learn from our mistakes.
