Disasters did happen earlier also but we did not count them or follow them closely because we were busy in our own lives. We never had time to grieve for others or feel their pain. Now we feel because we are in some or the other way affected by corona ,so, can feel others grief too. We are either affected with poor business, job loss, pay cuts, infected by Corona Virus, feeling imprisoned in our own homes, or financial distress. When in pain, we relate better.
After a cloudy day, and pouring rain, sun shines better and pleasant too. So wait for the rains to stop, the sun is eager to shine. If we withstand this pandemic, we will flourish for the next 100 years. Life gives an accelerating push when it grows monotonous.
I pity these women who get An addict for husband (alcoholic, smoking, tobacco, drugs etc…,) A lazy person or A timid person with zero confidence The family gets him married with the so-called their version of ‘HOPE’ that he will improve after marriage. And the bride is completely unaware of these hard facts.
She agrees for marriage with her version of HOPE that she is getting a life partner who will love her, respect her, care for her and understands his responsibilities well towards her, their family and the future. She comes together to find shelter under him in the society to love, respect, care- for him and his family and be reciprocated for all of it. To her dismay and distress, she discovers the adverse situation hidden and finally comes to terms with it. This is where her version of HOPE disappears and merges with the HOPE of her husband’s family. Suddenly she starts believing that she is the reincarnation of Satyavan’s Savitri who fought Lord Yama for her husband’s life. She takes his cruelness, frustrations, disrespect, harsh words, comments, ill-treatment more like a servant than a wife. And eventually forgets her identity, her wishes, the definition of happiness, love, marriage, care, partner and lives a mechanical life with minimal feelings for anything. A life ruined for someone’s ‘HOPE’. Should it be called ‘HOPE’ or GAMBLING with someone’s life because you have raised an unworthy human being?
