I fear that we have neither the knowledge nor the wisdom to comment on the current situation; or the capacity to disregard the current health crisis and go on with business as usual. In the time we get outside of additional lockdown related tasks, our minds are completely occupied with trying to make sense of the science and politics as well as possible consequences of the pandemic. We search deep within our devices for hopeful encounters like those of nature responding to our absence from its spaces. Just this morning, a story of the Olive Ridley turtles’ return to Orissa beach in droves brought some joy. The endangered Small Indian Civet that was found skulking across a central street in Kozhikode, Kerala, was also a heartwarming item in the week’s news.
I believe it will not be an exaggeration to claim that every aspect of our lives has been impacted. In such a scenario, consolidating our thoughts is proving to be quite challenging. Thanks to our team members, we have collected some interesting stories, but as the primary essayist, I find myself stuck. Please excuse our temporary absence, and we hope to return soon. Meanwhile, we welcome you to visit our older posts, if you wish. Until then stay safe, stay home, and stay well. Thank you for your visit.
