Day8 - 21 day lock down in India

Today was day 8 of the 21 day lock down in India. It seems I am getting used to Work from home now. It is not as frustrating as the initial few days. I am also doing my Shambhavi practice daily. Earlier, I would skip it. Though not being able to step out and staying indoors still is a concern. 

The worrying part is that number of cases are increasing and so is the death toll. The reason for it is stupidity of few. I have decided to not provide numbers anymore as it is immaterial. Even in the year 2020, people are neither using their brains nor listening to the ones who can use it. We may be able to come up with a vaccine for the virus but stupidity seems to be eternal. Internet is able to spread stupidity as well and not just information.
I have never fully read the Bhagwad Gita but from whatever little I have understood from it, the one word summary for it will be "Intent".  This one word is what matters in whatever action you take in life. The action itself is not good or bad but the intent behind it. So when people are aware that by venturing out, they are putting not just their own life but the life of hundreds of others at risk, it is a case of wrong intent. 

Hoping and praying that better sense will prevail in the country and we will act wisely to combat the threat caused by the covid19 virus. 

Good night!
