“Think positive, stay safe” – think well, be healed! Friends are giving advice on Facebook during this difficult Corona-era. They have strong arguments to justify such advice.
“Avoid hearing the stories of this terrible tragedy, helping the people sitting at home, helping them in fear. Everyone has already learned that the system has collapsed once, so listen to the sad stories of the patients- What is the benefit of telling and seeing. Everyone knows how much and how the difficulties are, we are all feeling that deep sorrow, so now we have to see that the air of the people is well, they are not victims of nervous breakdown. ! “
This is a period of prescriptions, a period of neem-hakimi prescriptions. Everyone has their own tips on dealing with the Corona period. Any medicine of homeopathy that will do wonders will be returned once in a while. A miraculous decoction of clove-cardamom, basil and cinnamon that will kill the virus that has entered the respiratory tubes in the same way as a soap claims to kill germs hidden in the scum.
Water cloves from alum, hot water garbage and that panacea means hot water vapor which will kill the virus of Covid-19 with its inner fire.
The Facebook friend, who suggested that the system collapse in the Corona-era and does not spread negativity to protect people from nervous breakdowns, also has a recipe. What is the recipe, call it a ten-point action plan! You say: Remove yourself from the news related to the Covid-19 virus, something like a corner infected quarantine itself at home. Now what remains to be known about the Covid-19 virus, all the essentials have been known.
Do not look at the statistics of deaths, it is not a cricket match which is necessary to see the score every time. Do not stare at the internet repeatedly to get more and more information, this will weaken your mind. Avoid spreading disheartening news. You are stronger than the mind and heart, this does not mean that the rest have brought a stone like you. They can put you into a depiction of your spread-out frustration and despair.
That sounds fine. Then what to do in this corona-era? A friend has also suggested a recipe for maintaining positivity: Listen to favorite songs or bhajans playing in a slow voice at home. Keep washing your hands frequently, keep steaming and teach the discipline of the members of the household who do not do so.
Remind yourself that this time will pass as always. Keep your mind light and the atmosphere happy because it will increase your immunity, staying in worry reduces immunity. Keep yourself entangled in future plans, think how your personal and professional front is better than before.
Not every merge has a medicine
The recipe is good, but like every recipe of quacks, this recipe also has the same old disadvantages. One such thing is common in such prescriptions – these prescriptions call themselves Ramban, they are not medicines of every merge but of every merge.
Ask anyone who advises from drinking jokes, eating junk to lime-oranges to keep a fibrous diet, and to increase immunity to drink decoction, gargle, stomach constipation, no mucus in the chest – Dear! Tell me, these tips are dragging around the neck, what should be beneficial in the condition of cold to a very disturbing heart disease? And, in all diseases, these prescriptions are beneficial, so why not treat every merge with these prescriptions?
Following the standard protocol of public behavior now, the recipe giver will say to Hikrat – this is the problem with you, secular, librands and mine-market gangsters! You neither know your tradition and culture nor do you believe that it is the best!
After this argument, you cannot say anything further. You start worrying, you start saving your life. What else can you do that here you are being suspected of being an Indian. You can not tell the recipe person that sir!
Keep your quacks with you, that you are advising us to be blindfolded like nothing else. This recipe is a bandage tied to your hands, not your eyes. Your advice is the advice of a lover blind in culture love, who says, “I shall see and I shall not see you any more.”
There is also the same flaw in the prescriptions of creating and spreading positivity in the corona-period. This recipe prevents you from seeing the reality, explains the means of blindfolding. Remember, fear is felt by everyone and if your Facebook page has become a cremation itself, there is a wave of reactions like “last salute” and “God rest his soul”, then the throat of the family and loved ones dries up .
But this does not mean that we should not look at our pages on Facebook and Twitter. To avoid fear of heart break and heart break, stop seeing and understanding those conditions which have made life difficult. The imposition of the refusal to see and understand the truth which is visible before the eyes does not provide the solution to the plight.
Think, how will you be able to fulfill your civic religion if you do not search the internet and do not search on Facebook-Twitter? One of your Facebook friends has pleaded that a patient of Remedesvir drug in Patna is in dire need, who can arrange for help, help. Someone has written, an elderly 67 year old is in urgent need of oxygen cylinder in the Phalan locality of Najafgarh, help.
Somebody is telling, the oxygen level of such a student or teacher of DU-JNU-BHU is falling fast, if someone can get beds in the hospital, get them done soon. If you will not see this message, do not spread it and do not disturb your life in this order, then how will you play the essential human religion to save someone’s life?
Politics of tips to stay positive
There is a fine politics in advising to maintain positivity. If something is bad, then such tips suggest you to become a monkey with Gandhiji. You do not see evil and do not listen to evil. When you will not see and hear, then the problem of being against evil and speaking is solved in this way. Is not it an easy trick!
This tactic seems to be very forgiving of the governments who have turned away from their responsibilities, sorry systems. The system remains constant without you speaking, its wear and tear continues unabated. You don’t have to worry about thinking about yourself.
The system takes all the work that you have to think and do. Slowly you start thinking what the system thinks and thus you become a part of the system. There also comes a time when the country remains only, the country is no more.
Remember that while you were following the tips to maintain positivity, an elderly man was searching for a cremation place stuck in the bicycle frame of his wife and he was very lonely in his predicament.
Hundreds of stories of loneliness and loneliness of solitude are going beyond your prescriptions to spread positivity, whereas at the same time you had to be with these stories because: “The country is not a map made on paper that one part is torn apart when the rest is the same.” Be kind. “
