A gap of two years really puts you far behind where you could be in blogging. I had started the blog in the second half of the year 2017, and just after writing 4-5 blogs, I left the website untouched for about two years and began writing again in oct-nov, 2019. I had started writing on this website just because I wanted to try something new and blogging was one on my bucket-list at that time. I used to think that one could just write something like poetry or interesting blogs and leave it as that only. I had no idea that to progress in blogging one has had to be interactive with the fellow bloggers, until recently. But I have a dilemma regarding this. Does it really matter how much you interact or communicate with others on your blogs or you can let your blogs speak for you specially when you are not a talker?? The gap really did put me far behind where I could be by now, but apart from that, am I doing it the right way or not, this question really strikes me hard sometimes. I really want to enhance my blogging skills while not wanting to be occupied with it for a good amount of time, as even now, this is not my first or even 5th priority.
Strategies of lockdown 1 and 5 could be better but nope! We are disorganised as always.
Why don’t they just make it very simple that testing is compulsory and those who have got tested for covid-19 can move around freely?
Should have begun testing with the most crucial industrial and agricultural sector parts (testing done by government recommended) alongwith that of private companies involved in supply of goods and transportation, right during the initiation of lockdown one. Then the employees in administrative branches could be tested so that offices could be opened up by lockdown 2 or 3. And finally the educational institutes could be opened up after compulsory testing of all the teaching staff and students right from day one of the new session, maybe alongwith testing of their parents.
Malls, cinema halls could still wait to be opened up. What was more required was a workable goods delivery system rather than letting people roam around such sites freely.
And what was the need to open up worship places?? Does that money go to government in any way or praying together in the very close proximity is going to stop the spread of virus?? This may happen to be the biggest downfall in their strategy.
But okay.. Good organisation or management is not this government’s forte, trend shown time and again.

THINK ABOUT IT.
I think it will be better to extend lockdown but with better measures.
According to me, agricultural and industrial production should be increased by first of all, testing the lower strata of population i.e. daily wage workers for COVID-19 by the government and giving them temporary jobs in these two spheres where manual power is lacking these days while making the middle class strata stay under lockdown and imposing a special revenue on upper strata income on profit making after a certain income level.
I know it’s difficult to take such steps as the population is huge but it still can be done rather than staying disorganised during lockdown and yet extending it, putting all the pressure on the same very few frontliners. Moreover, final year medical students can also be encouraged to help by granting them stipends particularly for working in hospitals in lockdown days, and some people from the general public can be given responsibility for carrying on the duties of police (under the supervision of police, of course) specially for the purpose of keeping gathering of people anywhere under check.
I know India has a mixed structure of socialist and capitalist economy more tilted towards capitalism but socialist measures are the need of the hour.
A few of these steps have already been taken; I hope it can help.

Covid-19 cases are again peaking. DON’T YOU THINK THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT IS EXTREMELY INEFFICIENT AND UNORGANISED?? Do they ever learn anything or just keep rotating their inefficient strategies??
Colours brightened all over the sky
Makes me wonder why
If life is limited
as it really is
Why darkness is so deep rooted.
Some people be really dragging me as a variable in their life for feeling happy, sad or angry.. WTF do you want?? Can’t you feel anything about yourself or your life?? Why am I being reached for no reason?? Come on.. Stop it now..!! It seems like we were in relationship n just broke up.. WHAT THE HELL is that when I don’t even know you?? Stop stalking for god’s sake..This shit be getting under my skin now. Why am I supposed to answer to something meaningless just because you need attention?? Why don’t you just leave??
I am not finding any alternative than ignoring as clear communication doesn’t work with you.
If anybody got offended by my last post, it only means that either they were finding pleasure and validation in my pain, which by any means is toxic, or they are over-analysing what I write. In both the cases, they need to find their mental balance and stop being overly reactionary.
PS- I am not giving any explanation about my behaviour here as I do not owe it to anyone for what I write. I am just trying to reflect on people’s reactivity so that they can heal on their own by self-evaluation.
Is it necessary that you can have only one spirit animal??
Isn’t it possible that you carry a diversity of animals in you based on how many times you have re-incarnated??
Apart from re-incarnation, you still share DNA similarities with a lot of species, does not DNA affect the spirit? If it does, then do not you carry the spirit of all those animals??
You carry various emotions at the same time with a dominance of a couple of them at a particular time which may mostly be denoted by a particular animal but does it really mean that you cannot be something else unconsciously??
Overly-motivational videos sometimes make you feel like you are the only one not doing good enough in life.
Use them with caution and only when you are willing to do something and are not depressed because believe it or not, it tends to depress you even further when you watch them talk about how one can “rise from the ashes” “go from rags to riches” “from blank to highly enlightened” with pure passion and courage and spirit. No people! Courage, spirit and passion are only a minor proportion of what is required to reach your destination. If everyone could attain everything based on mere passion which is actually only emotional power, each one on this planet would have been an achiever.
Where on the one hand, they are right to motivate others who need only motivation despite having every other thing required to reach a goal, on the other hand it can make one feel really weak who has no plan or target to achieve. One needs logic, grit and resources more than mere motivation. It’s like if you want to run a wheel, you need, first of all, wood or metal and tools and knowledge to assemble it to make it, rather than having a potential energy to be changed into kinetic one. One cannot make a wheel out of leaves or air or water merely with passion.
Kudos to those motivational speakers who talk about steps as well to attain your goals. They have in-depth knowledge of how things work and they talk with logic as well as emotions.
You will move a mile
And think that you ran hundred
When you don’t have a yardstick to measure what you are doing.
People read and study a lot
Not for no reason,
It helps in knowing how much you know
How much you need to imbibe and learn
What you need to eliminate from your mind,
You can think that you have created something exceptional
Until you know that it’s already available, tested and dead;
Reading, studying and learning is so important
It eliminates the IGNORANCE dread.
(Getting the already existing knowledge, it’s opposition to test its veracity and the results that came out and the conclusions drawn is so important. People generally think a lot on their own and then feel that they know a lot, like they have found something exceptional, they keep those ideas with them for years, struggle to make them a reality, only to end up in knowing that the same ideas were carried out in the past and failed miserably. It’s not bad to carry on with the same or similar ideas again as there is still possibility of their success due to changed circumstances but thinking that they surely will end up in success, specially when the independent variables are uncontrollable, those ideas prove to be just utopian views. That’s why knowledge of what worked in the past and what did not is really very important, be it regarding any field or realm.)
Life feels strange.
I have not found it any other way;
Where you succumb to the daily hassles
Waking up every morning
Not knowing why you did so,
You become a magnet to robotic tasks,
Doing every single thing,
That you are supposed to do,
Be it expected by society or you.
You think that who do nothing
Are just useless n meaningless,
But do you realize that those same people
Are just doing what they want
And are not being played like you in a worldly mess?
Life is an opportunity for a few
Whose death they feel is nearing
What you do daily?
Just wasting it doing stuff
others find endearing?
You just waste it
Thinking that you have got eternity here
Living a meaningless life
Leaving everything you want to do
While in a wrong direction streering.
