The total number of cases of corona virus in the world has crossed seven million and the death more than 0.4 million. Counting corpse in countries continues. Countries like US, Italy, UK, France, Brazil and India etc. are battling hard and the originator is sitting at far bottom in the tally with its own white paper giving a clean chit. What was an internal affair of China few months back has become the national affair of almost all countries in the world. It appears as if China was saying, I have given you the virus, handle with care!
The world would have done it, but the virus is completely out of syllabuses. US president is daring enough to call corona virus as the Chinese virus. And now it appears to be a true and verified fact. A minuscule mistake of China had shaken the entire humankind.
Things cannot stop here just like that. No country has the right to play with the lives of innocent people in this world. Any such damages in this civilised world are not acceptable at all. The European powers have also unleashed criticism at China.
It is interesting to know that Germany’s largest tabloid newspaper, Bild has worked out an itemised invoice for Euro 149 billion (130 billion pounds) under the title, What China owes us. It includes a Euro 27 billion for tourism revenue loss, euro 7.2 billion for film industry, a million euros an hour for German airline loss and euro 50 billion for loss of small businesses. Quite a justified move. The newspapers, channels or other intellectuals in other countries should have also done that. Though the loss of lives cannot be directly converted into the monetary unit, an insight on the economic impact is worth looking for!
On similar line, a newspaper conducted a survey in UK and almost 94% of the readers felt that the Prime Minister should send China bill over the financial impact of the virus on the country.
It is also not wrong if the education minister of Brazil linked the corona virus pandemic to Chinas plan for world domination. The cloth that China is wrapping around itself has millions of holes through which the world had seen the harsh reality, which in no way can grant China the much and ever sought excuse.
If it is a gentlemen game, China should accept its fault and seek pardon form the world, from the people who have lost their loved ones, from the people who have suffered the hardships, from the people who have lived in the state of fear, from the people who suffered physical as well as mental torture. China should issue a paper but a white paper should not do, it has to be a transparent paper. And, as atonement to the sin China has committed, it should:
- Withdraw all the claims on Chunxiao gas field in East China Sea that has reserves of 364 BCF of natural gas.
- Relinquish its claim on Socotra Rock on which South Korea has constructed the Ieodo Ocean Research Station.
- Give up its claim on Senkaku Islands.
- Surrender its control on Taiwan.
- Restore the autonomy of Hong Kong.
- Relinquish its control over the Spratly Islands, the Paracel Islands, the Pratas Islands, the Macclesfield Bank and the Scarborough Shoal in South China Sea.
- Hand over the control of Chinese occupied Kashmir or the Aksai Chin to India.
- Granted freedom to Tibet.
- Exit the permanent member seat of the UN Security Council support India and Japan for the same.
- Fund the WHO completely for a year.
- Publish in open domain the research being carried out currently in biological and nuclear fields.
The list is not complete but the pointers are set right. These socio-politico-economical steps shall at least ensure prosperity of its own kind which if accepted shall be Chinese biggest gift to the humankind! And the world possibly will forgive China for its biggest global gaffe.
The world is fighting against the corona virus and it is no less than a medical emergency worldwide. Our social habits are changing, our life style is changing. All the otherwise officially busy people have been spending their precious time doing nothing during the lockdown. Many came to know how many shelves are there in the kitchen, many have learned how to hold the broomstick or the mop. Many could realize why their maid servant couldn’t get rid of those stubborn stains on the floor The only purpose remained in life is: survival.
Kids today are quite difficult to handle as compared to the kids of earlier days. Probably, due to the fact that they are exposed to the gadgets at an early stage. No wonder kids start watching TV or videos in smart phones right from their first birthday. These kids can embarrass the elders the way they operate the mobile phones and explore the features. Parents also conveniently leave their kids with the smart phones so that they do not disturb them. Incidentally we can see every member of the family busy with their mobile phones. Continue reading
I have my office in close proximity to my home as I am residing in the company’s township. I can really feel the joy of it. Not that my house is big enough or furnished to the level of star hotels but for the very reason that it is just near to my office. I have seen people struggling to reach the office. It is not the time that is important to them but the safety. Some drive for hours, some take a cab, and some use public transport but the threat on the road remains. Continue reading
As New Year arrives people tend to adopt many resolutions and try to follow them. The number of resolutions may vary. Some feel they are too perfect to make any resolutions, some do not believe in waiting for a new year to make resolutions. Some make a single resolution and see that they follow it throughout the year and also thereafter. Some have a list of resolutions which they try to attempt and succeed in few or all of them. Some make a resolution not to make any resolutions. Continue reading
O my doppelgänger, I can see your anger
you wan’t me smart, but I remain candor
that has cost me heavily in all my endeavors
my contemporaries excelled, I remained in fears
you told me to be diplomatic but I didn’t change
my straightforwardness was regarded as strange
you asked me to be ambitious I remained same
neither cared for fame nor worried for name
you told me to be opportunists, biased and selfish
but I thanklessly didn’t even fulfill your wish
so, O my doppelgänger, I respect your anger
I will remain as I am, don’t try to tamper
they say life is a bubble, let it be
at least colourful world I can see
the bubble may burst some day
till then let me live my life my way
God has blown this bubble for us
let no one try to prick it or crush
the bubble may float up or down
we may feel happy or may frown
but the bare fact of the life is clear
till bubble lasts cheer without fear
Recently we received a very sensitive and expensive machine for our office that was awaited for long. As with every new thing, this machine was also treated like a newlywed bride in our office. Care was taken to position it as per the standards. The area kept clean and dust free. Only qualified personnel were only asked to operate it. The fear was that it should not start malfunctioning because then we all will find trouble in meeting the targets. Continue reading
Once soother is inside the mouth
and no further crying is heard
one thing is guaranteed for sure
the experience is Out of This World
