My Philosophy during the pandemic

My philosophy during the pandemic evolved slowly with the testing time…. I learnt to minimise my needs, and care more about others, realised how transient was life how meaningless our wants, learnt to focus more on the soul less on my perishable body, I wiped tears and reached out to many, saved lives and saw a few die…. sadness and grief, everywhere around, but learnt hope, when I saw children smile, I gave away what I could, and learnt to live with what I had and not ask for more. Hunger of others hurt me more than my own hunger, In this disaster of nature I learnt to understand the meaning of love and God! most importantly His design! My eyes are now set to be one with that eternal light .. the absolute truth! like fire brings the best in iron this experience has reshaped my belief!

A brilliant write Krish, I know you came face to face with that covid beast being on the front line. It does make you take stock of your life and how immaterial things like phones, i pads etc are, it's people and especially your family thats important. Best of luck in the contest. Tom

Thanks Tom! It has been a difficult time for health professionals around the world! Many are leaving! The UK Government has actually cut our pay!! Let’s hope the world survives the next few decades!!
