The resolve of earthlings to fight and defeat the latest threat to humanity has reached new zenith. Entire world is focused and glued in this salvo with expressions pouring in from across the globe reaffirming our faith in the potential of man to fight back.

Epilogue is receiving it share of unflinching commitment of mankind to defeat the nova threat known by the name of COVID 19 virus. As the entire globe stands astute and firm, we present a very telling expression of our thoughtful and creative reader Mr Ramesh Manvati.

COVID-19, the virus of Corona,

Originating from Wuhan in China,

Has created an unusual scare,

Crossing borders, on earth’s sphere.


From America to Zambia,  

Everyone, whether, rich or poor;

Of any nationality and religiosity,

Is hit by the fear on their persona.


Till now in months, nearly, four,

Over eleven thousand lives are lost;

Unfortunately, on more shadow is cast.


Life, virtually, has come to a standstill,

Including in India, from a town to a hill.


Not panic; to fight the pandemic,

Wash your hands frequently,

Remain in isolation from public,

Inside one’s homes, preferably.

Strictly, follow ‘Janta Curfew’,

Help protect and save a few.


Revisit, deep rooted Indian Sanskaar;

And, greet people with a Namaskaar!


Corona, unites the world in fear;

For humankind, a signal to be fair ? 

It is time to stay focused to the resolve and commitment to life. We must in our individual capacity lead by example and lift the moral of mankind. We must remember with each challenge comes opportunity, and opportunities lead to new discoveries. Let us all discover the collective power of mankind through individual benchmarks.
