Corona gave the country many sour-sweet experiences. The most important is that of ‘Janata curfew’. It is common understanding that the curfew is the prerogative of the state and that is what it imposes by force. We have many experiences in which the Janata curfew was imposed by one of the agitating groups and then forcefully implemented, open shops looted or vehicles plying on the streets were broken or set on fire. When the state imposes a curfew, its police and military strictly evacuate the streets. So when the Prime Minister talked about ‘Janata Curfew’, there was doubt in the minds of the people. As the day progressed, the skepticism shifted to confidence that we could and we did. It also happened that health workers were praised like jawans or farmers.

The Battle of Corona is associated with national memories and institutions around the world. Every country is fighting it in its own way. Started from China around December. In the totalitarian system it was easy to hide information from the public, so for a long time people in Wuhan did not know what is happening. By the time it became a compulsion to accept the system, thousands of people had been infected in the city. Even more alarming was that thousands of people fled Wuhan due to rumors and unconfirmed information and started the international transition. However, when it was acknowledged that they were dealing with an unknown epidemic, we also realized their fighting ability. No one genie has built a thousand-bed hospital in a week In the midst of the epidemic, humans did it. Isolating the entire city with a population of lakhs from the country and the world, and transporting all the essential goods from food and medicine to the people in their homes, everything seems like a story There will be debate later on that if the information had already reached the common people, then the loss would have been less? Or if Doctor Li Wenliang had not been sent to prison for spreading rumors for the first time to express suspicion over the presence of the corona virus, could the infection have been prevented from becoming world-wide? All these academic questions on one side and the fact that the totalitarian system has started broadcasting pictures of the complete evacuation of a thousand bedded hospital within four months. So what harm would have been reduced? Or would Dr. Lee Wenliang not have been sent to prison for spreading rumors for the first time expressing suspicion over the presence of the corona virus, could the infection have been prevented from becoming world-wide? All these academic questions on one side and the fact that the totalitarian system has started broadcasting pictures of the complete evacuation of a thousand bedded hospital within four months.

A second glimpse of distinctiveness in ethnic practices was seen in other Western societies, including Italy or Spain. The festive and vibrant Italian society considered the ban on daftari or business activities a suitable occasion for leisure and ventured out to the beaches or nightclubs. Soon millions of Italians became infected with the virus and reached the shelter of hospitals, and Italy’s health services, which were high in world standards, were completely destroyed. As the transition chart in China dropped, Italy rose. In the past, Italy has overtaken China in cases of death. The circumstances are that the burials of the dead are not found there. Family members are wrapping the deceased in blankets and keeping them out of the house and the army is performing the last rites. Italian tourists fond of traveling became the carriers of this dangerous virus in many parts of the world. In the early cases in India, there were many such

Like Italy, another great society, Spain, has paid the price for its habits. They stand at the third spot of the loss. Many other countries of Europe are also badly shaken. America has also fallen into this category. All these countries are known for their good health services. Despite being expensive, these countries continue to provide life-saving medical care to their citizens through state insurance or other interventions. When they stumbled, it was just because they took too long to change their crazy routine.

It should be our consideration that despite these facilities, if health services in these societies have collapsed, what would have happened to us if Corona had an initial attack in Delhi, Kolkata or Hyderabad instead of Wuhan? It must be admitted that our government and non-government agencies fought it very hard when the opportunity came, and will still be called successful.

The corona has five stages and we are currently in the second or third phase. For the final victory, it is necessary to break the chain of infection and socialism will be reduced for this. The major challenge for a democracy is whether it can lock its citizens in homes like China and ensure that they get food and drink in their homes. Their patience should not be disturbed due to lack of any kind and they should not come out on the streets. The danger is enormous, if Corona enters a period of social transition, our health services will collapse and initial success will not work. The success of the public curfew holds some hope that the state can encourage citizens to remain locked in their homes even if they are not authoritarian.

This sense of public welfare was also seen this time that some state governments have announced to earn daily during lockdown and send some amount to the accounts of the eaters. It is a different matter that this amount is very less and governments should take a lesson from China and make arrangements that people locked in their homes do not die of hunger. This is also a good opportunity when we reevaluate our health services and prepare ourselves to deal with threats like corona.
