COVID -19 and Depression free Senior Citizens
6/2/2020 11:31:28 PM
Er. Jitender Kohli (Retd)

Coronavirus started from China taking Chinese system unaware of its disaster affect made them to keep it within them before it exhibited its devastation victimizing other countries including India. Being late target of this COVID 19 Indian Government led by Modi PM reacted to it by preparing to counter this virus. One day home self curfew and Lockdown in stages saved thousands of lives though it affected national economy. Choosing between saving human lives and financial benefits the Modi led government chooses protecting human lives is being acknowledged at global level.
The lockdown and its restrictions imposed nearly curfew to the routine life of people which made the BPL most endangered to survive. The time by time the government initiated to care this section by providing direct cash to their bank accounts, providing free rations, medicines and other essential necessities. The society having different sections connected with variant living modes are being taken care according the needs of that working or business class and others of society.
The implementing teams at ground level might have unintentionally error by missing some individuals can’t be taken as governing error. The other states governing by Non-BJP political parties and many and many NGOs, societies, individuals rose to the time assisting the in implementing central guidelines to break Corona chain in masses.
During this lockdown the society has learnt what the hidden chains of fanatics are working for their personal gains that have some political parties to protect them with ensured vote bank to grab political success at the cost of nation. This made one explosive of Coronavirus carriers by Tablighi Jamaat members, who spread to different part of country and later attacked medical teams, police, abused Doctors in hospitals stooping low to insult women medical members who were and are protecting human lives risking their own life.
Second phase of instigating of Mazdur by providing fake massages to assemble at some state border, bus stands and railway station ensuring availability of transport facility. This started from Delhi state to UP border where the CM was publicizing free food for twelve lacs people per day which was and is not covered by the media. This was followed by other states but Maharashtra Mazdur became most victimized for such messages and assurances. Had the state government taken care of these people none would have risked their lives to assemble in large numbers in COVID risk? The PM had requested all to stay as is where is to be cared by concerned governments.
This wave of instigation was so strong that Mazdur along their families started march to their homes by covering hundred and thousand journey on foot. If they were totally penny less then how they were meeting their daily food, water and other necessities to ease? It makes one to remember that political parties managed mass of farmers to march from one place to Delhi on foot walking hundred kms by taking care of their needs in this march. Time will disclose who instigated, sent messages, announced in localities to puncture the positive Lockdown affects. This perturbed the entire society compelling to think about the statements regularly issued by opposition leaders cursing Modi team effort to fight Corona onslaught.
Dramatizing bus availability at UP border, failing in providing passengers list in Mumbai, not providing central issued ration to the people in Delhi in May 2020 has exposed the cheap politics and politicians. Ignoring own governed states confuses the society why these leaders are playing with human lives for their political mileage? This fuss has made Mumbai, Delhi to hold nearly top position of Hot Spots and West Bengal is not lacking behind in it.
The human is not used to confine within four walls have started having depression among kids and teen ages in particular. The middle aged people created short routes to make everyone busy within four walls with learning new things, making, reading and socially serving the needy around.
This all has also affected the Senior Citizens whom morning evening walks, meeting with their counterparts are curtailed and they are bound to more mix-ups with third generation who are compelled to stay at home.
Though government, organizations and agencies are taking care of all section of society ignoring those Senior Citizens who live in posh colonies, beautiful houses and have ensured income as pension or other but are entirely lone as their children are settled or posted in other states or countries. This section is mostly of aged husband wife to whom none reaches to ask their problem if they have. At last leg of life they need more medicines, they need kitchen necessities which they were managing before Lockdown but now it is difficult for them to move out because of medical guidelines. It also now becomes difficult for them to stand for a long time to purchase at grocery shop or medical shop which creates them to think bit seriously. This section of Senior Citizen are scoring over entire society by being away from depression normally others have. These senior Citizens are habitual of living lone for years together and have minimum consider from the society. Writing, reading, prayers and yoga has made them to think being lone is not a curse but a boon to try to spiritual part of life least fearing COVID.
System or society may not take care of such Senior Citizens they are contain to their environment without cursing anyone but praying best for all human lives.
On the whole people are facing variant difficulties and have successfully adjusted with the time utilizing the guidelines and availabilities made by concerned authorities and generated from within them.
