In the whole universe, our earth is probably the only planet that has all the essential components for the survival of an individual. Since the start of the human race, we humans have always worked for our greed. Not only in the food chain but also in the whole universe, humans have considered themselves to be the mightiest.
We made nuclear bombs, rockets, missiles even after knowing that these would do well to none but only cause destruction.
We did industrialisation which temporarily benefitted us but today it is one of the most serious concerns for mankind.
We created automobiles to make our transportation simpler but today this is the biggest reason behind air pollution due to which the world loses approximately seven million individuals annually.
Today we are at the verge of finishing our natural resources and very near to destroy our mother earth. According to United Nation's latest tally, we humans now only have eleven years to recover our environment otherwise the conditions would be harsh enough to vanish the very existence of humans.
Though nature has always given us way more than we ever required, but our selfish deeds have always disappointed it. Instead of praising and caring about our nature, we have always been the reason for its destruction.
As it is said that "nature is humble to none, if you have done bad to it, sooner or later you will have to pay for it". Whenever things have gone too inhumane, nature has punished us with the greatest pandemics, be it the times of Bubonic plague when almost 60% of Europe's population died or now, the COVID-19 which according to the latest updates has caused death to 207K across the world till now.
The whole world which was in a rush towards chasing their selfish ambitions has been put to hold due to the pandemic. And now when there is no movement of humans in the outside world, things have started to recover in nature. The ozone layer's healing and also water, air, and soil pollution is reducing. And most importantly now, we humans are realising the importance of togetherness irrespective of our religion, gender and greed. Today the whole world has only one purpose that is to fight the coronavirus. The irony here is that on one hand we humans who have made their way to the moon, have satellites on mars to search for earth-like ailments that are necessary for survival, and are searching for other Earth-like planets and thinking of the possibility that if everything gets destroyed on earth, some of the privileged people who have a certain amount of resources could go on these planets to start their lives again, and on the other hand these humans have not been able to find the cure of the coronavirus. According to the latest estimates, this could further take around a year to develop, and by that time who knows how many more people would it cause death?
Maybe, nature is trying to teach a lesson to all who have contributed in its destruction and as it is said "mite is also crushed with wheat"; all those who have done nothing wrong, like infants and animals are also suffering.
Even after all these life lessons the pandemic has taught us, it is still hard to believe that humans would change. Probably this would never happen but today when we all are sitting at our homes and worrying over things that we would do once the lockdown ends, there is one thing we all have learned is when it comes to being the mightiest, there is no one mightier than the Mother Nature.
