Janata Curfew – 22nd March 2020



As we participate in Janata Curfew to safe guard our beloved motherland from the growing scourge of Corona Virus ( 315 cases with 4 deaths) as of today, let us remember and pray for the humanity at large in the grip of this pendamic.

Around the world as on today
2,99,284 positive cases
12,886 deaths.

Our heart goes out to those countries in Stage 3 specially Italy – 53578 positive cases with 4825 deaths surpassing China which is thankfully shrugging off the virus with 3261 reported deaths.

I came across a very touching Guardian Post video of a German neighbour hood showing solidarity for the Italian Nation by singing the famous folk song of Italy.

According to me this compassion for humanity, prayers and good deeds, reaching out to those in need, not being selfish are the only antidotes to stop the virus at your door, before the time an antivirus vaccine is discovered, and that is atleast a year in the future.

O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao

Seeing the cute German kid upholding the Italian flag bought tears in my eyes and prayers on my lips. The videos coming out of intensive care units in Italy are very unnerving.
On reflection it seems there is a larger purpose, Nature is sending us a message.

Before sharing the video link would like to share the first two stanzas. Those who may have seen Money Heist on Netflix must be familiar with the song.
Sing along and remember those who are suffering around the world and all those dedicated health workers in the line of duty taking risks to save humanity.

The famous Italian folk song which became popular in World War 2 in fight against fascism.

Una mattina mi son alzato
O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao
Una mattina mi son alzato
E ho trovato l’invasor

O partigiano, portami via
O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao, ciao, ciao
O partigiano, portami via
Ché mi sento di mori

Stay positive – stay safe – do not give in to rumours – have faith in Allah.
