CORONA Ka डर | Hindi Video Poetry
Corona Ka डर is a Hindi poetry written on the lines of the present condition. We are living in a society where we crib and cry rather finding a solution or handling our mental health.
The entire country is feeling this pain, and the only thing expected from us is to be at home and be positive.
Can’t we give that much?
Corona is a fear worth fighting out not worth crying. This Hindi poetry deals with this very concept. Spread our work !!!

The Post lockdown Resume.
Your profile needs to be edited. The experience section needs to be updated in your resume. A separate segment of your learning in the last two months needs to be highlighted. Not only certifications shared on LinkedIn but the takeaways of your overall professional and/or mental growth, as well as understanding, should be highlighted on your resume.
One thing we all must agree that this lockdown due to COVID19 left us with a thought to take a step back and introspect. It can be in terms of what went wrong or what right needs to be done in future. It can be with respect to business, jobs or even our self at large.
I understand many people in and around us will debate and argue about the mental stress of extra working hours and a tensed situation due to layoffs, leaf them so exhausted that they did not get any time or motivation to learn and upgrade with any other certification.
But as I mentioned, it can be either mental or professional learning.
For all the work experience, we already have a Pre lockdown resume.
COVID19 came to us like that uninvited guest whom we didn’t even know. It took our address from some distant relatives of ours and visited us, giving us curiosity, anxiety and fear with each day passing.
The country got deserted and people got caged within their 4 walls. But wasn’t that even an experience? Even this learning must have made us draw certain conclusions on various factors of life and business.
With my experience of 7 years in Sales, I have realised that not always the best person with a typical theoretical knowledge is able to achieve targets on the ground. It is always the one who understands the situation from heart and mind altogether, creates an internal conflict and solves it thoroughly, makes a difference.
It is the EQ that counts more than IQ and what makes the difference is the combination of both.
And to have such an understanding, this lockdown presented you with one of the toughest life situations. To be present in it, managing domestic and professional life altogether. Handling overtime working hours and still managing household chores, Being laid off from Job and still trying to maintain a strong mental behaviour focusing on the way ahead.
This time gave us the freedom we always planned but never took. Freedom to introspect, dig deep and even enhance our knowledge learn new experience and note the learning from it.
Many corporations on their own took this step of enhancing the learning of their employees which definitely must yard better results in the coming months. In other cases, the individual took it on themselves to do the same.
The ones who did this and stayed focus on the best of both (the mental and intellectual) learning, got many such lessons which will help them to decide where the future lies.
The shift from physical to virtual in its complete sense was another aspect of growth. I realised that we have grown up with the concept of Peer to peer learning which always took place in person and also how the corporate environment affects your growth was the idea thrown to us during all corporate meetings. And now we were left with none.
Are the learnings and growth not possible now?
Since ages, it has always been the humans who stood up for their needs. And the ones who did, thrived.
Instead of blaming, let us consider it as a phase of transition and discovery. Somewhere nature had pressed the reset button and now we are back to basics. So that eventually makes us the creators of the new world. It is how we will toil hard now and design it, paves the ways for the future.
So let’s decide what changes we made and how those changes made us in the last two months.
Whether it is,
On working hours?
In coordination virtually?
Or on the impact on productivity?
How was the mental state?
And in case you got sufficient spare time, where did you invest this time in?
There should be a post lockdown resume.
All the learning and experiences should be highlighted in your post lockdown resume. It should be a matter of achievement for you with the understanding and learning with which you came out of this phase. Mentally and otherwise. And all those things need to be highlighted in the resume. You should be able to put down the understanding of this phase.
For the future, the main learning this lockdown has given to everyone is to not take anything for granted and the ones who understood this during the lockdown learnt a lot.
Whether you wish to analyse or answer it to yourself or others, is a personal choice but eventually what did the lockdown bring out in you will sooner or later define you.
मेरा गांव मेरा देश by Ramta Jogi #Lockdown
मेरा शहर आज-कल मेरे गांव सा लगता है,
सड़कें खाली, गलियां सुनसान,
बिखरे पत्ते,राह में 1-2 इंसान,
मेरा शहर भी मेरे गावं की तरह,
न जाने क्यों हो गया वीरान ?
सूरज की किरणे अब चुबती कहाँ है ?
सांज के साये अब कहाँ रास आते हैं ?
वो रोड पे जलते खम्बे,
अब कहाँ किसी को राह दिखते हैं ?
उगते है दिन जल्दी बड़े,
बड़े देर से ढल जाते है,
वो पेड़ तले बैठ के होती थी जो बाज़ियां,
वो ताश के पत्ते अपनी छतों पे खेलते नज़र आते है ,
तारीखों का ख्याल कहाँ
हफ्ते, 1 दिन सामान बीत जाते हैं
शब्द भूले जा रहे?
सपने सपनों में व्याकुल है,
आवाज़ गले से कर रही खलल ,
न जाने ये केसा माहौल है ?
जब गौर से देखा, तो समजा ,
ये शहर लगता है तो मेरे गांव सा ,
मगर है मेरा गावं नहीं !!
मेरे गावं में एकांत है, तन्हाई कहाँ ?
उसकी ख़ामोशी भी अक्सर, मीठे सुर सजाती हैं,
कड़क धुप में, उड़ती रेत भी,
एक इतर की खुसबू छोडे जाती है.
खाली सड़कें, गिने चुने लोग ,
खुद की आज़ादी में खुश हैं !!
वीरानीयत लगती है जो शहरों को ,
उन बातों का मेरे गावं को कहाँ दुःख है !!
मेरा शहर इस सादगी से अंजान है
अपनी तन्हाई का ये एक लौता मेहमान है,
इसे खुद में रह के जीने की आदत कहाँ ,
खुद से रहता हैं मायूस अक्सर,
ये लोगों के शोर गुल से ही तो जवान है
मेरा गावं वो बूढ़ा बाप है ,
जो बच्चे को विलायत भेज के ,
चैन की नींद सो रहा,
मेरा शहर वो बच्चा हैं,
तनहा रो रहा

This is a Fiction story on Corona Virus and the lockdown scenario.
” The virus called time” short story by Ramta Jogi –
The police patroled in the city saying, “Stay in to stay alive, as the virus could potentially kill you.
Against this announcement, he ran away. He ran, despite the pleas, the requests, and the instructions. Just a few moments ago his flatmates heard him thrashing his TV set on the ground before they could get up to see what had happened, he banged the door and briskly walked out of their apartment. A couple of his flatmates ran behind him, others, concerned and shocked, reluctantly dialed 100 for help. Without a care in the world, the techie ran to the streets to end his frustration caused by the forced isolation. It was 20th May, the 58th day of the nationwide lockdown.
It was in January that year, that people started to talk about the spread of a certain virus, not deadly, but highly contagious. The word was that it spreads faster than the word itself. The media conducted several inconclusive debates about the medium of the spread. Some suggested it was airborne, some said it spreads through touch.
Before the governments realized, people infected with the disease started queueing up at the hospitals. Soon, there were reports of young children and elderly people dying as their immune systems gave up the fight. Unaware of how to deal with the situation, nationwide lockdowns were instated as a measure of containment as desperate times call for desperate measures. It was declared a Pandemic.
Unaware of how grave the situation is, families and work professionals looked at the situation as the thing that was missing in their lives. The family time it was! Delicious meals, time with the kids, online movies, etc. The initial lockdown, which was meant for 3 weeks, came as a “Refresh” button for some. People viewed it as the time to recuperate from their hectic work life. Soon, the forced change to the lifestyle became a little harder to come to terms with. People realized that the love they have for their families is because they don’t stay with them 24*7.
As the days progressed, time moved slowly as many lost tracks of which day it was. TV wasn’t that interesting, online games weren’t challenging enough. Nagging from the kids caused irritation and cooking wasn’t fun anymore. Even making love, became more of a duty rather than passion. News channels and the internet spread more negativity than ever before. Caged inside their rooms away from home, students and bachelors found it hard to survive. What’s the point in punishing everyone because of the stupidity of a few?
Tension mounted on families as the breadwinners panicking about their jobs. Small businessmen were finding it difficult to maintain liquidity sighting negligible demand. Manufacturing set-ups had been shut for weeks. The concept of work-from-home was giving employees more stress than ever before as there was an apparent lack of trust from the employers.
The count of infected people kept growing exponentially, and so did the negativity in the lives of all. People woke up every morning with a hope that this will end soon, and they would be free again, but accepted the reality that it wouldn’t end soon enough.
On the penultimate day of the ongoing lockdown, it was decided that the restrictions would remain imposed for another 30 days. While everyone was subconsciously prepared for this extension, the announcement which followed sent shockwaves. The government wasn’t just grappling to contain the virus spread, they were also struggling to contain the spread of “Fake news” and misinformation. As a precautionary measure, it was decided that a nationwide internet ban would come into effect for the next couple of weeks.
This move was a huge setback for the businesses and citizens in general. It was hard to come to terms with the situation as frustration knew no bounds. News channels became the only source of information, but with the constant fear-mongering, a strong undercurrent of fear could no longer be ignored. The service of all-time and any-time connectivity which social media provided was being missed thoroughly. Especially those who lived away from their families began hallucinating. With nothing to do and no one to talk to, they felt imprisoned.
It had been three weeks since the announcement of the extension. There was an eerie calmness in the environment. Roads were empty, no airplanes in the sky. Bodies and minds were numb. The silence was uncomfortably deafening. This was a test of patience, the reaction to every discussion was an outburst.
Thoughts of going back to the streets were flooding the minds. People weren’t afraid of the virus anymore, after all, how long can an invisible enemy keep you down? The policemen guarding the streets were well-aware of the growing angst. They were thrashing people who took to the streets without any strong reason. The situation is moving towards curfew.
Long unkempt hair, a sense of fatigue and discomfort prevail. Stocks have crashed, economies are staring at an inevitable recession. People aren’t sure of how to get their lives back on track once things normalize. Most have become living corpses.
And on that day, he hurried out, to end his frustrations, to come out of the isolation. No one knew him. Just another bloke out of the 1.3 billion. A police van tried to stop him, but he was in a strange state of mind, probably unaware of what he was doing.
He fell, got up, started running again. The van chased him down and one of the policemen blew a stick to his legs, followed by another one to his head, knocking him down. People heard the screams and came out to their balconies to see what was wrong. By the time his flatmates ran down, he had been seriously injured. Seeing his state, one of them shouted: “Kill us all, before the isolation, kills us!”
The power of raw emotions and anger had found a way out. The policemen could sense the situation getting out of hand as the voices grew stronger and louder. They started hitting those near them to vacate the street. Within minutes, a huge crowd had gathered as people watching the proceedings from their balconies came down in solidarity. More security personnel were summoned to bring the situation under control. It became an ugly scene as mob walked closer to the police sloganeering “Kill us all, before the isolation, kill us!”
The frustration had finally got the better of the patience. The inner numbness had finally ended. The chaos became too much to handle. Ambulances rushed to the area to help those who had been injured. The sheer inner angst was shielding the pain of broken bones and bruised bodies as people shouted at the top of their voices “Kill us all before the isolation kills us!”
Soon a force was called, to disperse the crowd. But who knew that it was just the beginning. The isolation had a far scarier impact on the minds than the virus had on the bodies.
They said, “Stay in to stay alive, as the virus could potentially kill you.”
They were right. The virus did affect many, it was the virus called TIME.
The same evening it was announced that the Prime Minister will be addressing the country the next morning.
