The world is full of oxygen but today we are not able to take it into our breath! This is the final truth of today. And the government has drastically failed, is another grim reality.
Thought should go into the reality that, did we ever think about the hospitals? No, we didn’t! We invested more of our time in temples, Masjids, or other religious places and ignored the aspect of life completely.
We were also more worried about votes and campaigns with a breathless pace but we forgot that we don’t have the real air to breathe.
Problem Of Plenty!
There is no dearth of oxygen in the world but we didn’t summon our faculties to extract it from the environment and store it for the crisis today, we are in.
One life is precious, all say it louder but when time has come, our system has become faceless and vacuous. All the promises made turned shrill and the reality slept under a quilt of pretension.
Today the doctors are crying in panic as they are not able to save the lives of patients due to lack of oxygen.
A History In Making!
It must go down in the history that, in a country as great as ours, every other day patients are dying more due to the lack of air we breathe, than Corona.
Most modern science has failed to read anything concrete about Corona but, our modern-day leaders have become like chatterboxes before empty oxygen tanks.
‘Tsunami ‘ Says High Court
Today about 30 Covid patients died not getting oxygen in Delhi and other cities. Now that will follow with messages of sobs in the Twitter handles of leaders and that is all.
Now, all meetings to boost the morals of people are not going to help the situation.
Delhi High Court has dubbed the menace of Corona as a Tsunami and predicted worse times to come.
While the air in Delhi resonating with the cries for oxygen, the figures of 3,46,786 Corona cases have already broken the breadth of India.
