    Time is the real answer for everything. The nature is just trying to say us that we are only guests here and not Masters. we need to learn lessons from what is happening rather politicizing it. There are no foreigners who have come and sat in this land to call them outsiders. That's their mother land and be it celebration or adversity they will return to their motherland. Moreover we are all temporary here so no land is owned by us! Only at times like this Humans can display the utmost Humanity or utmost selfishness. Choose what you want to do. This Covid has come from nature, to take back its nature, to revive this mother earth. Lets surrender to it and accept that we are here to nurture the nature and lives. Lets show gratitude to what the nature has given to us. Lets pray with the nature to be gentle with us and forgive us.

    Very true; but such mass killer pandemics have hit humans from time to time wiping away large number of people without any discrimination! As you said, it's Nature's way of cleansing the system of its dirt from time to time! We are, so transient, just a flash in the pan in this cosmic dance, which nobody thinks about in good times!

    Just to make people know. People of Udupi did not deserve to suffer this plague, they did well with efforts from their Administration. We had that engineering collage sitting empty right below the IXE runway wich could have been used for mass quarantine. (Which did not happen may be failure of the DA of DK or the state).

    Now DK and Udupi was asked shut close for 2 months which forced people to go out of business and after things started normalising we decided to bring the people from abroad who are carriers of the plague.

    So the question remains what was the goal and reason of 2 month closure if the plans were bringing people anyway? We should have done this the first place.
    Now the numbers are going up like a rocket ship and TV channels are showcasing it as some sort crick score update .Hope they realise its people who are suffering and not something happening in the Wonderland

    Its a mistake by authorities to allow people to quarantine in hotels, which is in center of the area, where people move more. Moreover there is aligation that few people who where under quarantine brought liquor from shop and withdrew cash from a nearby ATM. Something is seriously wrong, self quarantine is not working, police should have guarded them.

    Sahil, i don't have any objection if any one comes who belongs to our area. My objection was, they should not have been quaratined in a busy place, unguarded, where people move.

    Sahil, forget and forgive dear... Let's not dig the past. God has blessed kasargod/Kerala right? What else we want?? ...

    Nothing bad will happen because of someone's saying... What has to happen it will happen only.... In the meantime there should be efforts from the people also and should understand the responsibilities as a citizen ....one thing it's clear...how many prayers are rendered all over the world, irrespective of caste, creed, communities, religious heads, ordinary people since so many months but no results.... Corona keeps on spreading however it wants in any weather in any area...villages/gramas. That means are our prayers are fake? There's no power in solo/group prayers?? Or just god doesn't listen...? He takes rest for few months? Got fed up with the human beings??

    Kindly don't blame anyone, since they have been quarantined they been tested and the results. Like if we start testing the general public will find the same type of results. In most of the cases their asymptoms.
    So this is what is happing.
    Take care & stay safe.
