Dad, will I never go to school?
Dad, will I never go to theatre again?
Dad, will I never go to play with my playmates?
Dad, will I never go to markets?
The above questions are of my son who is a level three student.
Can you realize the pain hidden in these questions? Can you stay normal to these questions!
Everyone is somehow victimized by COVID. From children to old aged people, beggars to the richest, ordinary people to royals, vagabond to working people, women or man, adolescent or young, nobody could escape from the grasp of COVID. Someone suffered physically, someone financially and economically, someone psychologically and mentally, someone educationally. But the mental sufferings of the children are terrible. Forced isolation living, quarantine living, living without schools, living without playmates, living without relatives’ lures to be asocial, think asocial, and be asocial.
Like an atomic bomb, the Covid as immediate and aftermath havoc to human living, humane attitude, human thinking, and behavior and the most vulnerable are the children. So are the future generations.
