Tring Tring Tring, the bell rings.
“Ishtudents! Pleasshh take your isheaat.”
So used to say my English teacher, back in the 8th Grade. P.S, Hope you get the irony here 😀
With this, HELLO, dear Reader. After the overwhelming response that I had received on my previous article, I decided to rest for a day or two.
Perks of having a huge number of readers that – Haha!
Okay so, a lot has been going on across the globe over the last 3 days. Delhi ranks fourth on harassment in Public Transport – Facebook has launched a free internet app in Tanzania (don’t ask me why – I’m totally clueless 😛 ) – the ‘Umbrella Revolution’ still continues – “HOW TO KISS” is apparently the most googled question of the year – ISRO announces “Mars 2” Mission in 2018 – and Mr. Subramaniam Swamy tweets the rest. Haha. (On a serious note, I respect this man.)
Well, of all the things I’ve mentioned, one thing I didn’t is the EBOLA outbreak that still lingers in every newspaper. It is said that Ebola might infect more than 1.4 million people by January, and to say that this disease is a casual threat to public health, is probably the biggest understatement ever. Thousands of people have already died. But imagine how many families have been affected. Half of them cannot even afford the treatment, even if they knew they are being affected by it.
I sat back and thought what I could do about it. It was then that I found out that Pnemonia and Fever kill more people than Ebola does. Wait! CHILD LABOUR! LITERACY! SANITATION! HEALTH CARE! DEFORESTATION! There are innumerous facets affecting us besides the ones I just mentioned. What is the world doing about it? What are you doing about it? What am I doing about it?
I’m waiting no longer. I am doing something about it, RIGHTAWAY; I ruminated.
And this is what I did, for myself – and for you.
