TRANSCEND MEMBERS, 31 Jan 2022
8 Jan 2022 – All over the world, this fearful pandemic is creating incalculable harm and fatalities. Be it USA, or England or India, its scope is increasing. Many areas which were free from the horrible disease are now succumbing to it.
I myself am a victim of COVID and suffer mentally physically.
Medicines of all types are scattered all over my table. Imagine what would’ve happened if I didn’t have them and services of my children. But that is how the poor without help or medicines are suffering. Has God betrayed these god fearing poor people. Krishna, please help the poor and needy. For me, I suffer but with help of my family. Neighbours send messages of early recovery, speedy recovery, speedier or rather speediest recovery but don’t wish to risk their own lives by visiting me.
Such is the status of the rich English speaking minority of India.
This may be my last article to my good friend Antonio. May God bless him to become healthy and fit.
