Prevention is better than cure

At this moment, when the whole world is fighting against the Deadly Corona virus, we have no question about the fact that the above statement is so realistic.

Dear Reader,

Today Corona virus has become a serious cause of global fear and concern. It is like a Demon which is threatening the world. Due to Corona virus (COVID-19), the world is facing an unprecedented crisis all over. The Corona virus outbreak has been declared as a Pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Understandably, people are feeling afraid at this moment. But I want to tell you that challenges make people stronger. I firmly believe that the struggle of life is, in fact, one of the greatest blessings. It makes us patient, sensible and more responsible. We need to confront and overcome those challenges which come in the path of life.

The doctors and the nurses have been working very hard. They are giving their own lives exposed to danger. Thousands of people have already died due to the massive Corona virus outbreak. However, we can avoid this life threatening virus from affecting us and our loved ones. But how?

We can abide by the precautionary measures in order to prevent the spread of the newly discovered Corona virus. We are much aware of various preventive measures such as the use of mask, washing our hands frequently with a soap and water or using a hand sanitizer, practicing social distancing, etc. People are advised not to step out of their house unless it is urgent and to always wear a mask whenever they step outside. Nevertheless, staying at home is probably the best precaution that we can take at present time.

Some people are finding the Corona virus lock-down monotonous. But it is essential for us to engage ourselves in something to make this time productive, rather than boring or frustrating.

If one has been finding it difficult to stay idle for a long period of time, here are some suggestive ways to spend the time fruitfully.

  • Exercise — It is probably the best time for one to indulge in activities like exercising, practicing yoga, etc. and ensuring that we remain healthy and fit.
  • Thinking About Future — During this lock-down, it might be very helpful for students to think about their future goals. This is the best time for students to utilize in thinking about everything they want for themselves.
  • Exploring the artistic side — Choosing any of the creative activities such as painting, singing, reading good books, etc. will grant peace of mind.

Lastly, I would like to convey that —

Life is like an ocean, it can be calm or still, and rough or rigid, but in the end it is always beautiful.

Yours faithfully,

Avisikta Roy
