In World War II ( 1939- 1945), all the great powers had eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis emerging a state of total war directly involving more than 100 million people from more than 30 countries.Both the alliances had relinquished their entire economic, manpower and scientific resources to win over the other. It resulted into  massacresgenocides, death from starvation and disease, and the ultimate usage of nuclear weapons in war.The long run effect of world war II on economic and health outcomes have always kept the human away from initiating any war while propagandizing the message of “spread of humanity and love” to avoid such trapped situation . But no one was aware of the greatest health straining trap of COVID 19 that we will face since world war II thus causing a death of more than 2 million people out of 34 million people from more than 215 countries. COVID 19 has the potential to devastate the political, social, physical and economic crises which will leave a scars for the upcoming centuries. Here the two opposing alliances are humans and virus, an unwanted substance where even arbitrators cannot be called to settle a dispute. The lessor we can do is to cope up with this undisputed and trapped crises by obstructing its waves.

In order to render a preventive measure against COVID 19, India has observed three consecutive national lockdown as:

  • Phase 1: 25 March 2020 – 14 April 2020
  • Phase 2: 15 April 2020 – 3 May 2020
  • Phase 3: 4 May 2020 – 17 May 2020

This lockdown depict the different types of trapped situations:

  1. People living with all the basic amenities and spending a quality time with their family are “trapped in recreation pains” . They are restricts from stepping out of their homes. All offices, schools, colleges, pubs, hotel,cinema halls, malls, restaurants, transportation services except of movement of essential goods has been suspended.They are refrain from shopping , parties etc.
  2. Mass exodus of migrant workers who have became jobless after the lockdown are “trapped in poverty”. They have no source of income and no saving to sustain their lives to ensure basic necessaries.
  3. The increasing number of Domestic violence and attempted suicide by some alcoholics are “trapped in unruly”.
  4. Fakes news and communal hatred spread by people are “trapped in religion phobia”
  5. Contribution of huge amount to Govt. care fund with the primary objective of dealing with such of emergency or distress situation deprived poor in meeting their necessities. It has lead us to the room of “ trapped in Govt. false promises”.
  6.  The world will faces a recession and loss in global income will adversely impact the  countries. This unprecedented damage to economy deteriorating global conditions post lockdown propound “ trapped in forfeiture”

We were trapped to attain materialistic happiness by pleasing everyone- family, friends and society- where we are lured to get good academic marks, secure a seat in better college and acquire a best 9 to 5 routine job. In this process, we forgot ourselves, our passion and our true feelings. We become a part of the tapped society and a virtual assistance like Alexa.

Are World War & COVID -19 given us a lesson of life? Were we not trapped in our usual days ?

WE ARE TRAPPED FOR OUR LIVES- Life is a trap where we are doing something contrary to their interests or intent.
