Life is so random

Life is so random and we are seeing the full-blown randomness with the coronavirus. We all have at a personal level seen randomness in our life, both positive and negative type. However, what is happening to the world right now is beyond any level that anyone of us would have imagined. The moments are also though allowing us to see life in different ways, ruminate over things in different dimensions. Many of us are probably calibrating ourselves and evaluating the pattern of life. Why we were living the way we used to live? Is that the only way of living? 

Life in itself is a very interesting concept. Look at the animals' life or even the life of a tree. All of them apart from humans born and die and do a certain set of things, which are well defined to a large extent. Sometimes just watch a cat or dog and read their eyes. So emotionless yet so deep. Either they know nothing or they know everything about the world. 

Corona has made the human race to take a step back and has forced them to think about things that they were considering as absolute truths. A car, a house, an exotic vacation, the best school for kids. We were engrossed completely in those thought processes. But suddenly the only most important thing is to survive and have a good square meal. Unfortunately, for many on the low strata of societies, the calamity has exposed them to the fault lines of human social and economic structure. The people who were inconsequential. The news channel that would be filled with entertainment stars is replaced by the faceless folks. It even is raising the question if the current model of economics is the right one. What is the use of such a model which puts the major part of the population over the fault line? 

But will it change? I doubt as the people bearing the burnt are anyway inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. We might see complete lower strata dead, yes human death, That is where the virus is hitting hard also. Malnourished, having a low nutrition system and hardly any access to healthcare we are going to lose many of the folks. A lot of other folks will do the journey from the middle class to the lower class. 

This is a time to step back as a human race and understand what we are up to. A couple of months the race was talking about conquering the galaxy and here now we are fighting for survival.
