I remember the day___
The date was 22/03/2020__
It was really an unsual day,
As we were not over-burdened with hell lot of patients,in the Medicine Dept.Unforseen!!
The staircases,the corridors,the floors inside looked so tidy..No more filthy!!
We were not going insane running hither and tither…
To go and resolve all of their severe and not so severe complaints;
Rather we were as cool as cucumbers!!
Our hospital might never have seen such a relaxed, yet a gloomy day..
It was a histrionic event in Medicine…
Because it was the histrionic Pandemic that knocked our way!!
Till then our State didn’t yet had a single case;
But the govt has imposed the “Janata curfew” from just the next day!
We started piling up things for daily use and consumptions;
And our duties for those with severe health issues were going on,as usual.
And yes, I remember,on 23/03/2020 was my friend’s B’day,
We thought for the big bash,since it was supposed to be the last hostel B’day;
Lamentably,our plans for the celebration went all in vain!!
We could manage just 4 pastries available in our hospital canteen and couldn’t blame!
Gradually,we started becoming aware of the fact that__
This is something very dangerous coming our way;Un-acceptably accepted!!
And scared deep down thinking,”Are we going to get extinct from this world?”Couldn’t say!
And one evening,while we were just babbling- post duty scene;
A message beeped from a phone;
Aghast!!We got ringed with the blues and the blahs!!
Unkowingly, limitary, a friend of our circle got exposed___
To the very first case in the state!!
And we were in sync,could you figure it out??
Let’s proceed in the next part,to figure it out!!
