Q. If someone were to ask you if the current government has managed the pandemic well, what will you say?

 

A. I am surprised that you are looking for an answer even after absorbing all the information that are making rounds in public domain. But try to remember a line from the Bard of Avon: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars/ But in ourselves, that we are underlings. We are cause everything that we experience and all concerned parties have contributed in some form in causing this current state of affairs. Did we act responsibly, consciously and keeping in mind the consequences of our action? A question worth introspecting. I know hindsight is a good science but if we look back, we forgot to ask questions as responsible citizens. Now looking for who is at fault is of no use. Civil society has already started acting but will it be able to eradicate all problems? The answer wil  be in the womb of future.
