Lockdown
by Dr. Jaipal Singh
Bookmark and Share
 
Today I received a call from 
A close friend and well-wisher 
Of bygone days from yesteryears 
Essence of his calling me was 
If I was healthy enough and enjoying 
The lockdown forced by nature! 

I did not disappoint him,
My response was as lively 
As he knew me from yesteryears 
That I seldom need time to adjust 
Making peace with the unforeseen 
Or whatever comes in life… 

But life should return back 
To normal and satisfying enough 
For the millions who are vulnerable 
And not robust enough to mitigate 
Vagaries and hardships of lockdown 
Now so posed by nature.

 

(This is in the context of Covid-19 disease due to which almost four billion human beings across the globe are facing lockdown and restrictions of various kinds; perhaps no other catastrophe of any kind has troubled mankind at this scale during the last many decades.)
