Received this in a whatsapp group and don't know who has penned this. I liked this so much that I thought of sharing here.
वक़्त थम गया,
किसने लगाई यह आग
हर इन्सान कुछ डर गया
कैसे आइ यह हवा
उठने लगे सवाल
क्या ठीक, क्या नहीं
कोई हे इसका इलाज?
मन शान्त और बचाव
इस में हे सबका भाला
करोना को लेकर
छोड़ दो सब विवाद.
1. People are becoming creative and are learning new things.
2. Family bonding is increasing.
3. Pollution is decreasing day by day.
4. Unity is also strengthened between Indian citizens which will help in the development of the society.
5. This is the time to introspect within your self and clear all negative thoughts from your mind and soul.
Unique way to learn nature: that each one is equal, and the tiniest member can render humanity helpless.
While some of us will pay the price, humanity will rise. We have lost track of what is truly precious, in the race of ill-defined parameters of success.
Purpose of life cannot remain a subject of philosophy, for academic discussions. It has to act as the polar star that guides us in every step, in every action. What stands out are: need of loving family around, selfless volunteers caring for strangers as their own, a government that acts as caring parents, and financial security to meet basic needs such as food, shelter, and life-saving medicines. This everyone needs and deserves, as collective guarantee. Rest everything is a bonus.
So, as Darwin taught us, the purpose of each individual life necessarily begins with: Survival. However, we complicated it by the term ‘Survival of fittest”, as we began to play with the criteria of fitness, in ill-defined vague terms such as expertise, efficiency, performance, success, money, position, power, etc. Most of all, we assigned intelligence-level as the ultimate supremacy over all other traits, even beyond selflessness, love, care,integrity. Well, if we want to understand, can we deny that the primary parameter of fitness is: mutually caring society, equipped with life-skills of mutual interdependence, led by integrity-driven selfless individuals, and enough prosperity to absorb sudden crises & losses. All other forms of fitness are next, as supportive parameters, as means to achieve this primary goal.
So, it’s time to go to the drawing board, and look at the first-principles. It’s time to reset priorities in the right order: family, society, then self. Money is vital, as everyone needs a boat in the ocean, but as means not as the purpose.
