Everything is so irrelevant in these times.
The latest cars, big houses, expensive brand clothes, watches, perfumes, etc., they have no meaning at all now. This is their true worth – nothing!
Most of the factory workers have been fired and that too without severance packages. The poor class is suffering, but it’s a different problem for the lower-middle-class. The lower-middle-class never before stood in lines for food or begged or asked for money. I know so many. They’d prefer to die out of hunger than to ask anyone for sustenance. These are sad times. We should be searching for them and helping them through this time.
People who know what “hunger” is, are coming forward to help with as little they have. The middle-class families are donating even Rs.500 or Rs.1000 to help, knowing that it’s not a lot.
There is just one race now, to survive, and to survive, we don’t need a lot of resources. And I hope by now you’d have realized it too. Whatever you save due to less commute, less shopping, less dining, spend that on the ones shy to ask. They are struggling to have a one time meal in a day.
All those dreams you had to “win” the world, whatever that means to you, can be fulfilled some other time. Or maybe the truth is this pandemic made all your desires seem materialistic now. The people who stand for others are the true unsung heroes. They win in the eyes of Heavens and in the hearts of all humans they serve.
