Social Distancing Bringing People Together- An Irony by Nature- Surbhi Sikarwar

“The power of God is with you at all times through the activities of mind, senses, breathing and emotions; and is constantly doing all the work using you as a mere instrument.” -Bhagavad Gita

Today just randomly, I penned down my thoughts on the current scenario, faced by billions of people around the world, reminding us that God is Almighty and the power of Nature is beyond our reach. When there is His will, everything comes to a halt; be it continents, countries, time zones, zip codes or even our fast paced life.

Unknowingly, we all were in social distancing even before this pandemic. Weren’t we all more aware about the likes on our social media accounts rather than the likes by the people around? We used to bother more about Netflix streaming than what is going on in the life of the family members, who care for us and just want our time. Don’t we prefer to stare in our mobiles and become almost blind, instead of admiring the beauty of nature that envelope us and soothe our eyes. That is the real social distancing.

The social distancing now followed due to pandemic has a stark irony because of the word “distancing”. It has brought us closer than ever before. We now value and cherish every moment we have, the people around us – our families, friends and the people in our society. We are there to help each other and the one who is in need. We are donating whatever little we have with open hands and open hearts. We treasure one and all who are helpful to us in any way be it be our doctors, paramedics, policemen, delivery boys, domestic help and the list goes on and on. We clap to encourage others and cry at the losses of unknown.

We as human species have become more compassionate. We came out of our cocoon and became butterfly, which may be was entrapped in the cage for a while but is now spreading wings and showering happiness with her colours and free spirit. This situation of adversity is difficult and testing, but it has taught us invaluable lessons of gratitude. We all have become more empathetic, humanitarian and benevolent, leaving behind the rags of indifference. Our cumulative efforts and prayers is the backbone to help fight with this perilous time.
