From Petri-dish to Petri-fied - Just CO VID the flow!
Since the past two years, we have been experiencing the bonafide meaning of “change”. We have witnessed this transition of perception at various levels. If we happen to turn back and see our journey so far; we would notice how the obstacle of global COVID-19 pandemic has slowed down the pace of our lives. It was the bumpiest patch of road, full of potholes and speed-breakers! Some people were not as lucky as others and lost the quest for their destinations mid-way. Some were able to sustain the ride and somehow managed to reach the other end of the race. A few suffered profound wounds on their conscience due to loss of someone close. But if we really have a deep insight into the past two years or so, our mind starts uprooting these unsettling questions which have been buried deep down due to the ongoing poignant scenarios. If we let our minds free to roam limitlessly in the open ground of exploration; it will still get intertwined with the laagered question of “what next?”
The COVID-19 pandemic is plagued by numerous theories. Several attempts are being made to disentangle the ambiguity related to COVID-19. What furthermore COVID-19 is offering us beyond the physical, mental and social connotations? Why are we failing to read between the lines? Why have we failed to decipher the ultimate COVID-19 encryption? The answers lie down there hidden. The only effort we need to take is loose our tunnel vision and start looking in spaces where we usually hesitate to explore.
Is it advisable to follow the deep dark tunnel in search of the ultimate enlightenment or is it best to just CO VID the flow? Enough about the quantification of the extent of COVID-19 hindrance on our lives. It’s time to talk about the qualitative aspects imposed upon us by the journey of this small virus “from ‘Petri-dish’ to ‘Petri-fied’”!
