THE SELFLESS WORKERS
Since last month, when corona virus, also known as the covid 19 has touched Kerala, the doctors and the hospital staffs have been working without rest. Although, the patients who are affected with corona are very minimum the ones who are suspected to have corona and a lot of other people who had interacted with the infected people are under the surveillance of these doctors and nurses. Dr Madhavan is one of among them.
While he was working day in and out for the patients, unexpectedly he got some time off from his duty. He rushed to his family to watch them from a distance. On the way he met his neighbour and friend Kiran. He called out to Kiran and asked where he was going. Kiran said that he was going to the hospital to meet his uncle who was admitted there. Madhavan, “ What happened to him?” “Nothing serious, he just came from abroad and from the airport he was directed to the hospital.” Kiran answered. Madhavan suddenly told, “Then your uncle is suspected to have affected with the deadly virus. Why are you going there? Don’t you know that you have to keep away from the affected persons? Why are you acting so foolishly?”
Hmm… But..I haven’t seen him for years and I am longing to see him. I just want to have a glimpse of him. Madhavan got angry, “ Are you out of your wits, here ,we the health department, police department, voluntary workers and the government are working day and night to mitigate the spread of this pandemic and people like you are making things worse.” “Sorry…. Madhavan I…. didn’t think about the consequences. My urge to see my uncle made me to take such a negligent step. I … am..I’m really sorry.”
“Thank God… you understood..PLEASE STAY HOME AND STAY SAFE” saying this Madhavan bid goodbye to Kiran.
