    [QUOTE="Balajee, post: 4179467, member: 21119"]First, let me tell you an old story. You probably know it. But anyway let me refresh your memory.

    But many pilgrimage centers have wisely decided to down their shutters, for the time being, Looks like they didn’t want to burden the Good Lord with the task of protecting his devotees from coronavirus,[/QUOTE]


    It is but human to think of God in troubled times......at least, for most humans!! But then, God did not say to the humans not to use their brains. After all, He/She has given us one of the intricately created part of the body, the brain!

    The man on the tree, the tourists, the train hopper, all of them had the brain and did not use it. Nor did the humans as a race did else this powerful virus could not have attained its ferocious expanse creating this pandemic. I have my doubts if our race will ever use their thinking capacities to the maximum. Trump refused to believe that it could affect his great country, Modi you say is planning Ram Jayanthi and other folk may go on their pilgrimage or to the beaches. And that's exactly when I want to say..."Hey Ram" !! What other choice is there for me???? :grinning:

    Meeting you here again Balajee...let's wish us the best!

    L, Kamla

    I am bubbling with anger over the behaviour of my neighbours. Some ladies are in the park singing bhajans and kids are playing. When you aren't willing to help yourself to stay safe do open or close pilgrimage centres really matter?

    Kamla welcome after a loooooooooooong time. The crux of the problem is people had brains but didn't use it. Hubris, iggnorance and the erranous belief that the virus only affects the OHERS is responsible for the spread. See in the US of A they're stiull to enforce a complete lockdown and in Brazil the president is saying Corona virus is a myth. In such circumstances it makes bery good sense to stay indoors

    Hariji that's a scary but possible scenario/ Ladies in my colony are already defying the lockdown by gathering in the park to sing Navratra bhajans.
