It is July 2020, half a year passed by. Looking at the present scenario, most of the people must be thinking what a waste of year! Coronavirus with the size of approximately 0.125 microns in diameter has turned our lives upside down. All are missing trips, outside food, entertainment, friends and all the other normal lifestyle. If you ask anyone, probably they will say, “Once this lockdown gets over, will plan for a trip”. Just want to step out from the four walls of our house, it feels like we are in a ‘house arrest’. We are exhausted with this unwanted lockdown, which stopped us from living our lives to the fullest.
When lives will start running on usual tracks, we will hop into our vehicles and travel across the town. Some of us may fly overseas to explore the world. But what if we won’t have any transportation to travel to our favourite place? How long can you walk by to that place from your house? Perhaps, you will end up your journey in the town itself. Without help of the vehicles we are restricted to travel anywhere in the world. One more barrier we got for travelling anywhere in the world is boundaries, the man made limitations. We need to get tickets, visas, permits, rooms, etc.
If we look around, the birds are flying high in the sky as per their wish and singing their favourite songs. Recently we all have seen the news, ‘Amid lockdown, thousands of flamingos migrating to Mumbai’. They turned the creek of Mumbai city into pink. Except humans no other creatures have got any limitations or boundaries to migrate anywhere they want. But we humans are creating artificial boundaries for such creatures by locking them into the CAGES. Just for our entertainment or making the house look fancy. Feeding that locked up creatures packet food without knowing their likings, whereas they can have fresh food from nature. They are shitting in the same place where they are living. We think they are safe inside cages, but they can’t even spread their wings and fly. While they can fly miles and miles into the open sky but humans are limiting their world behind the bars.
Now, as we all know how it feels living inside four walls, think about the beautiful creatures. Unlock the cages and set them free. Let them breathe, spread their wings and fly high and high.
