In the Name of Virus


The quill and ink,
The inland letters,
The cd and cassettes,
Rest in peace.

In the name of virus,
Challenges, debates,
Games and names,
Old logic, new fabrications.

The humanity and patience,
The sense and actions,
The real roads,
Rest in peace.

Writing this poem dedicating to WorldPoetryDay and new Virus  in town.
Of course also to the ones who are using the platform to spread hate and rumors too.

  1. This is a powerful little poem Prakash!! It reflects how much Life all over the world has changed.
    For us in Canada we do spread hatred or rumors. We are too busy trying to look out for one another & keep ourselves safe at the same time.
    We wish you & your family safety from Corona Virus.

      • I am in self isolation Prakash…this is now Day 9 (Sat., March 28th).
        Canada now has 5,576 confirmed cases with 819 NEW cases TODAY!! We have had 5 more deaths bringing our total to 60. 354 have RECOVERED…
        Your beautiful country is showing 987 cases (100 confirmed today) with 4 deaths bringing national total to 24. Thankfully 84 people have RECOVERED there.
        WE have to hold on to the positive. I pray you, your wife & children & both your families are well & safe……I pray nightly!

          • Hello Prakash..Do not worry I have been home almost 2 weeks. Tomorrow (April 1st) I will go do shopping for myself & BellaDharma…I have a mask & surgical gloves so will wear them. Once I am finished I will return to my place & stay inside.
            Both our countries are struggling with rising cases: 8,505 cases thru’out Canada with a total of 101 deaths.
            India has reported 1,397 cases & 35 deaths….I saw a news story how migrant workers are sitting with their bundles waiting to go on trains or trucks back to their villages. No shelter or food or money…I pray for them…it is so tragic!
            WE are being told in Canada the next 2-3 weeks will be the WORST> I am hoping I do not become a statistic!
            Be well dear friend. I’ll keep you & your family in my prayers.
