With Covid deaths in India touching alarming numbers, history will remember 2021 as the Year of the Virus. And my only hope is that we learn from the pain of losing those we loved, and imbibe the self discipline of masking up and social distancing to keep everyone safe.

Year of the Virus

But no-one wanted to believe, calling them just a scare,
Now we are caught unprepared,
Falling prey to the virus snare,
And still needing to be told to mask up to avoid a third flareā€¦
