COVID-19

If someone had told me in December 2019 that the world will be put on its knees by an ultramicroscopic infection i would have laughed and not taken it serious.

But here we are as coronavirus has gained global traction and as a result World Health Organization (WHO) has declared it a pandemic and this of course has affected the world in an unprecedented manner.

Personally i think two factors are responsible for the wide spread of this virus;

  • Government mishandling of Information

When it was first discovered in China, the Chinese government tried to suppress and cover it up and when they could no longer hide it, that was when it became known to the public and even at that time most countries took it lightly saying it was just a flu especially by the superpowers.

  • Misguided notion
One would have expected the so called world powers to have taken decisive and proactive steps in combating the virus the moment it first came to public notice instead they were playing blame game and World Health Organization was busy wondering why there was little or no cases in Africa but waited until it got out of hands before declaring it a pandemic.

South korea was the most infected country outside of China but as at now Italy has taken that position to the extent that Italy and some other countries are on lockdown.

South Korea have been able to contain and reduce the spread of the virus due to proper handling and responsive measures put in place by the Korean government and as a result some patients have recovered from it.

But the case is different in Europe according to reports Hospitals in Italy have been overwhelmed

ROME – As in any war, we have to choose who to treat and who not.

That was a headline on March 9 in Il Corriere della Sera, a leading newspaper in Italy, that informed us that hospitals in Italy’s north, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the country, were being stretched thin and the health care system was on the brink of collapse.

Economic activities have been slowed down or grounded all over the world as a result of the virus. Some notable world leaders and celebrities have tested positive to the virus.

Countries have placed travel restrictions on each other, Schools, Churches closed, events canceled and all sport related activities in Europe have also been suspended due to the spread of the virus.

Some organizations have asked their employees to work from home while Universities in korea resumes the spring semester tomorrow with online classes and students who traveled during Christmas holiday and are yet to book their flight back to school have also been advised to take this semester off.

World Health Organization said that they are doing everything possible to solve the problem but in the meantime there are several measures we can take to protect ourselves from COVID-19.

One of the most important ones is regular and safe hand hygiene.

Cover your mouth and nose with your elbow if you cough or sneeze.

Stay home if you are sick.

Avoid unnecessary travel and large social gatherings.

Comply with the advice of your local/national health authority.

My thoughts are with everyone affected and thanks to every health worker around the world and i pray God will grant scientists and researchers divine wisdom in coming up with a cure.


Until next time, don’t give up the fight.. #StaySafe and God bless.

HAPPY GREGORIAN NEW YEAR!

With the changing of the calendar there are disagreements about if it is really a new decade.

What a silly disagreement.

Humans feel they control time. They can catagozie and contain it. However, as diverse as Humanity is, there are as many ways to contain time as there are civilazations.

I Celebrate three New Year’s. My actually new year is aligned with my pagan beliefs with the start of the year on Samhein, Halloween.

Then I recognize the Gregorian New Year, which most of the world, particularly the Western World, follow. Then, finally, I celebrate Chinese New Year. This is out of appreciation for Asian culture.

I once owned a Tibetan Buddhist Calendar. It being based on the moon as opposed to the sun. It was definitely different.

My friend in South Korea has two ages. One which is “western,” one which is based on her culture.

Not only are there calendar and time controls within different cultures, there are different views of time in various religions.

Growing up in the United Methodist Church we followed the Christian calendar (hint we are still in the Christmas Season until Epiphany). There are specific traditions and practices associated with certain times of the year in every religious practice.

And don’t even get me started on the different political calendars across the globe.

Sometimes this societal agree on the meaning of time is to our detriment. More and more people are having sleep problems and health issues because they are no longer in tune with their own physical, internal clock, their circadian rhythm.

It is worth remembering for all of the different views and beliefs on time, it is all fabricated by our brains. It is simply a way for our brains to catagozie and barely begin to understand our place in the Universe.

This Gregorian Year of 2020 I suggest we all take a step back and allow the Universe to speak to us, to reset our clocks to its time, instead of the chaos of societal time.

Goodbye 2019

Last night I told my mom. when she said she was grateful 2019 was almost over, there were good things which happened in 2019.

Be grateful for the good things in 2019 and leave behind the rest.

I say again: BE GRATEFUL FOR THE GOOD THINGS IN 2019 AND LEAVE THE REST BEHIND.

Going further, be grateful for the lessons learned from the bad things that happened in 2019.

Overall, move in 2020 with a grateful heart. Forgive the events, people, and perhaps most importantly, yourself. Gratitude for the what was and gratitude for what will be. This is the best way to progress into the next decade.

I end with my favorite Scripture. Philippians 4:4-9:

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Kuch Khwaish adhuri si…by #VirtualSiyahi

Dil kehta hai thoda thehar ja

Ek do kadam ka chalna bhi jo ab fasla sa lagta hai

Roshan hokar bhi sab na jane kyu dhua dhua sa lagta hai…

Ranjisho aur shikvo ke kisse to naye purane bikhre zamane ho gaye

milne milane ke kisse bhi ab sadiyo purane ho gaye

ab to mulaqat hoti bhi hai to bas us lamhe mein…..

Thought of the day….

Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit.


एक बार जब हम खुद पर विश्वास करते हैं, तो हम जिज्ञासा, आश्चर्य, सहज आनंद या किसी भी अनुभव को जोखिम में डाल सकते हैं जो मानव आत्मा को प्रकट करता है।।

Why people actually like your blogs (definitely clickbait)

Everyone in the world likes some motivation and encouragement. And as for ‘e-writing’, likes are crucial for getting you going.

You know young blood, blogging and, writing in general is pretty hard. Really. And for an extremely lazy oaf like me, it’s like the world is constantly elbowing you with all it’s might. For the last 3 weeks I was overwhelmed with all the likes and comments that my blog got in ‘Success Inspirers’ World’ (they’ve changed their site design and its pretty slick).

So after this ‘incident’ (you gotta keep it casual, stop crying goddammit), I was really out of ideas for writing a good blog. AGAIN. I know that I say that all the time, but now I really do mean it. I started to write like 3 poems, but I couldn’t finish them. This is the stage of something that I like to call ‘Boy was I wrong about starting this.’

But with a brave heart and few youtube videos, I pulled myself together to write something. And the end result was, as you guessed, me searching books that I would wanna read. Still no progress. So, I started to ask the people I knew, about ideas to write about. Still no convincing idea. So, I asked my friend Arvind, (he is a goddang genius) and he listed some ideas that he liked. I wasn’t sure about it though. So, I didn’t write a blog about the ideas that he listed. But half an hour before, I was ranting about how I was feeling about not having an idea to write about. Then suddenly, he said, ‘Why can’t you write about this- this feeling?’ And you should have seen my face then, it was just like a kid who opened a present.

BUT, it could just have been put up in 2 words: Goddang painful. So, I was thinking of some other idea that could have this ‘feeling’ in it. And I started to read my older blogs. Then I quickly saw the likes I got from the poem ‘The power of music’. Then I got it.

I wanted to just give some ‘advice’. You might be wondering , ’Why do people like only like 1 of my blog and not notice the others?’ and why likes are just illusions that trick you into writing blogs just for them. The answer lies below.

They don’t give a crap about your content, they just do it for followers. UwU.

Just a quick update

I am still on my hiatus from writing through Thanksgiving here in the U.S. I plan to pick back up after this week. I am also happy to announce some changes to what I am doing. 

First, I will be writing one fiction story a week. These stories may be longer than I have written in the past. However, the reason I’m going down to one story a week is to accommodate the work of my second book in the Berserker series. In addition, I am starting work on another book by Lucius McCray. 

The second book in the Berserker Series is due to come out May 2019. Lucius’ book will have a publishing date sometime in the first quarter of 2019.

In addition, I am starting a weekly vlog called “The Berserker Life.” It will be a live stream. I will be covering topics that range from writing fiction, self-publishing to how to be an author if you are currently too ill to work a normal job.

For those who celebrate it, have a Happy Thanksgiving.
