Virus or Vice: Which is More Detrimental to Mankind?

We, humans, are fighting against nature since the inception of our emergence in nature’s floor and we have emerged victorious. Thus sustaining our signature in nature’s floor since time immemorial. Life and death are comprised in one and two opposites configure our presentation with our rigorous entity and in certain times within our life cycle, we are largely influenced by our inherent mechanism, where life is emerging as predominant, comparing to the dying cells in our available body politic.

After a certain period, the decaying degree of cells started to emerge and eventually surpassing the rate of cell generation, and in a certain time death eventually eclipse our life and becomes predominant and we emerged as moribund in nature’s floor. Thus our obituary being scripted in nature’s floor.

Death is an inevitable consequence the moment life emerges and started to unfold with its intriguing charisma.

Life sustains and explores in manifold design and always works for us with an aspiration to thrive more vigorously.

Presently, our life is at threat owing to the ongoing pandemic we are experiencing across the globe. A virus, a sub-microscopic infectious agent that replicates, when it becomes active in a living body as a host and only inside living cells of an organism, desperately needs a host, and we poor human falling into its prey and jeopardizing our very existence on nature’s floor.

Out of our advancement in technology and artificial intelligence, we are living to combat such confronting crisis and vaccine technology is our crafted design out of which we are expecting we can reduce the overall gravity of such abrupt emerging malice.

I wonder, how a virus can pose a major threat to our very existence! What development we already usher to ensure a safe haven for ourselves? We are devastating ecology and our environment out of our technological prowess, not bothering what consequence we are eventually beckoning and what ambiance we are going to create for our posterity.

If we ourselves cannot perceive the scenario we are going to engender, how could we envisage a pathogenic outbreak that could jeopardize our entity in near future?

Maximum dependence on technology can only script a design, where eliminating faculty with a positive approach towards mankind, not merely focusing on profit, greed, and wealth for few can only result in an environment for surging series of pandemics to emerge in due course of time.

On contrary, for centuries long, we human are surviving and sustaining out of our innovative approach where the majority’s interests are being focused, and we tend to experience the reflections being produced honestly by the nature in our faculty and the impact expressions of the external world being aligned with our internal configurations are the results of our consciousness, where no supernatural power have any role to play.

Inability to comprehend and to translate the result we are largely being engulfed out of the consequence where we merely an observer, that also out of our limited visual spectrum, we tried to translate our so-called mind and its confusions as voodoos, and thus established our imagination, having no attachment with the material expressions of the external world we observe, which alone possess a trait of the continuous process of changes, we poor creatures postulate it as “Supernatural affairs” and thus our ideological tenets engulfs us profusely, unknowingly only serving the interests of few interests groups, who are the only beneficiary. But, unfortunately, we ordinary mass cannot comprehend the combined design of external and internal world mechanism within ourselves plays the key role, where motion alone use to regulate the overall balance and plays a pivotal role for all creatures in nature’s floor with their very existence.

We, out of our centuries-long practice, traditions and customs, despite huge scientific and technological advancement and achievements, yet tend to anchor on ancient concepts, which actually ingrained in our D.N.A. and tend to make sometimes zombie and force us to buy, having the inclinations of our primitive proclivity, unlike the modern sense of reasoning. We hardly can discriminate between livings and non-livings and even from animals and plants!

Thus, we fail to gauge the veracity of the theory that organisms, that the Cyanobacteria, which only produce Oxygen catastrophe in our planet Earth at its nascent stage and eventually enabled a sub-division subsequently to emerge as organisms and plants.

Unfortunately, after so much advancement in the sphere of science and technology, still we tend to buy the gravity of “Souls” which we humans consider as cannot be destroyed, comparing to energy and we still believe in voodoo to overbear on us and ensure our lives on Earth!

In terms of maintaining an amenable temperature for a fish to survive, we eventually notice how internal and external, combining conditions play the key role for a fish to survive and how random motion within an object usher to transfer energy to another object to ensure sustainable development to prolong.

We tend to relate fish, as the basic formation of the human heart in the fetus, as it took at first the shape of a fish in the human fetus with two chambers, and later in due course of time it evolves into four chambers.

I firmly infer that the human heart is not at all weak and it has all potentials to combat against any invasions of nature.

I only wonder, comparing to man-made wars and the casualties it has produced, is it more detrimental than the war being posed by the nature?

We must acknowledge that nature is blind and having no serious and willful intention for the desired result to yield. But, only human beings having the capacity and intention with the desired result to yield, and we must not forget what it has yielded till now and what service or disservice it has rendered to mankind to date.

I Debasish Majumder, hailing from Kolkata, State: West Bengal, Country: India, born in a middle-class family in the year 1965 and brought up in an environment extremely favorable for me to garner knowledge from people from various walks of life. Their lives and livelihood are of immense gravity to me as I considered myself as a fortunate one to be facilitated to interact with those who possessed multi-faceted experience and thrived vigorously in their respective fields. Since my schooling as well the path of my studies till I completed my graduation in humanities and thereafter working in various organizations has enabled me to get hands-on experience about the twist and turns of life where I observed the plight of myriad who are economically vulnerable and how they combat the life and even capable to enjoy the every drop of it without complaining about their state. Since my childhood, my passion for the English language and English literature enabled me to explore the world in and around me out of fabulous authors and their valuable renditions which even unveiled front of me the true picture of nature and how it is now confronting peril out of greedy few sharks in the veil of few humans obliterating the very essence of humane! Their works encouraged me to pen down articles, short stories, and poems with my little ability and I have already had a number of paperback editions of my compilation of short stories and poems which are now available on Amazon and other global sites. My alacrity for learning regarding nature as well the society along with the people who are considered as the most precious imperative for us to be enriched. I am blessed by innumerable notable thinkers and philosophers whose works appealed to me enormously, and even helped me to shape up myself by virtue of their expressions. I am having little capacity to translate the reflections of the present society, precisely for the acumen of a myriad of learned persons who have helped me to widen my vista with their wisdom and wide array of knowledge. My sincere effort was navigated by those enlightened persons and I tried with my best of ability to reflect on the scenario I have observed in the journey of my life.
