The pandemic has everyone affected. And we are resigned to the fate of practically writing down one year from our lives.
A recovery is required and it’s happening differently in different places.
It happened in China first and let’s not waste time to know how they recovered too. And there are bright spots where the happening itself is little.
But the world has to bounce back and so does Kerala.
There are a few things special to Kerala. Those include natural beauty, hospitality, emancipation etc.
There are also political dramas and extreme devotion to it.
And ‘Kerala Model’ is something like a self praise and it covers even the pandemic. The only thing that’s not a self praise probably is the title ‘God’s Own Country’. That’s a term used by outsiders as Keralites have some honesty.
Kerala Model is something that’s still talked about but we’re clueless on it. No one knows if keeping people indoors indefinitely, hoping to be vaccinated while still indoors is the right strategy.
So we won’t lift quarantine even if the rest of the country have forgotten about it. Of course, we haven’t acknowledged that people from outside and the tourism inside are the ones who supported us. So hurt them, both!
Again ‘herd immunity’ is a bad word. And Arsenic is poison. But then, we don’t know what’s herd immunity, but we know homeopathy is good.
And we take homeo medicine Arsenic Album 30 to boost immunity. Then herd immunity could be not be by accident! We are basically jealous people and we don’t like gold being brought in by a few. What if we get beaten up by police, it’s worth shedding blood for herd immunity.
We’re clever too. Make the return of non residents the hell, and they will stay back to send money.
But what about tourism! Someone has to pay a price. Let it be tourism industry, which will get killed if tourists are to be quarantined.
I have been waiting for the quarantine to end for the past 6 and 1/2 months for returning home from Bangalore. See we have always a vested interest.
