Look at the Silver Linings instead


With the lockdown being lifting in phases across India, sections of the Media and super-spirited Social Media across India have been going overboard with images of 'crowds' at Marine Drive in Mumbai instead of looking at the silver linings across the entire zone.

It was Day One after 74 days of staying indoors for all Indians at a stretch. That they were out for the first time after so long...and in masks was lost to all bent on nitpicking.

The world indeed sees things in tinted views: The George Floyd 'teeming' protests all 'without masks' or in close huddles across the world now and across 600 cities and towns in all 50 states of the US, in particular, the highlight being: The protest march that passed through the Golden Gate Bridge, even at a time when the US peaked with COVID cases across the world, was dismissed as a 'Black Lives Matter' protest.

The George Floyd protests drew record crowds across 600 cities and towns in all 50 states of the US
The concern for the 'crowding' or 'potential spread', obviously too, made the proverbial miss! Chill...this is a new day and a new beginning. Life, as we know it, will not be the same but will not be snuffed out either. Smile!
