Living with HOPE in times of CORONA. Those of us who grew up close to beaches must have made sandcastles in our childhood. Those who grew up far away from beaches made the house of cards. Some even used matchsticks or small flat stones to build their fancied homes. Later on, there were plastics to make bridges and what have you. And then we destroyed them and started again. At times someone else destroyed them. Humans like to watch a little destruction that begins with sandcastles, house of cards and then improve their skill to escalate it. History is witness to this strange hobby. Starting from localized destruction to mass destruction has filled the history pages in all civilizations. Sometimes in the name of religion or ideology or even opinion but destruction, all the same, was the trend. Epidemics caused by viruses are not new. They attacked in the past also and we named them too-Plague and Malaria to very recent Chickengunia and Dengue. Now it is Corona. They say virus have always been there, for some we have developed immunity and treatment and for some we need to develop immunity and treatment. Corona as Pandemic will leave huge destruction behind in form of loss of human life, jobs, economy and what not, may be character and compassion also. The good part is we have the capacity to rebuild and there lies the HOPE.
