Realizations In The Times Of Corona Virus
In this Rat-race, called life, with fast food and restaurants along with gyms and fancy malls pouring over with snaking queues, the man had it, or at least he thought he had it all. The human race had almost started feeling invincible, drunken with power. Till this pesky tiny virus, suddenly appeared and shook up the entire world and had it trembling with panic and halted it in its tracks. It virtually brought everything to a standstill, with the economy on the point of collapse.

And, of course, the unscrupulous ones making hay in this mayhem, while the panic sun was shining bright.
