Oh! So boring! To live in confines of four walls.
Closed are restaurants, theatres, closed are the malls!
As we cribbed, felt mundane and exasperated by the sudden shift in scene
There were few humans who struggled to save us from the demonic Covid 19!
If soldiers fought at the borders, the frontline workers fought to put us within borders!
To put life at stake for the sake of others lives, they were no less than warriors!
Without caring for their families, they worked day and night...
As we munched and binge watched Netflix, they continued their fight!
Even the laathi charge of Police didn't instill fear in all.
The Lockdown was a break for some, a time to plan a trip with a pal.
Tiny tots understood and tried adjusting to the new routine - a reality that many adults dismissed!
For some, the picture became clear when one after the other, many succumbed.
For many it still is all a hoax, unnecessary panic created by ulterior groups!
Getting exposed to virus is a myth to them, as they dish out gyaan on the WhatsApp statuses!!
To save such, do our Warriors need to suffer and let Covid take a toll?
Is it worth it to get beaten up for asking humans to follow protocol?
A simple concept like social distancing could not be explained to public!
Essential workers toiled day and night to avoid millions of working from home folks from getting sick.
People lost jobs, economies fell flat, tears flowed, miseries spread, death rates increased!
In mid of all this our frontline angels worked 24*7 unflinched !
I couldn't bear when a doctor bid farewell to his family.
How many lives would have been risked while discovering the vaccine, which some felt is silly!
We cannot follow a simple rule, stick to few doable guidelines and we even fight against them!
Rather than thanking all who strived for us, we find it amusing to blame!!
The virus had a new political variant, people formed groups, naysayers created uproar!
Our warriors continued their work and flattening the curve was their only chore!
I thank our COVID warriors for bringing us out of lacunae and imbibing a bit of courage to cope.
As I remember them today and everyday, any prayer or a tribute falls short for the real heroes who in our lives, filled hope!
