To be humane is to show kindness & compassion, to have genuine concern for - and have understanding & empathy towards - others, especially for those around us. It isn't enough to just write or talk about being humane, our actions must reflect what we say.
Now, its been said that extraordinary circumstances call for extraordinary measures. With the ongoing global pandemic due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19), we find ourselves in just such a situation right now and it seems that what we thought was ordinary, i.e., the work/ action of many that we take for granted, are now being revealed to us as, in fact, extraordinary.
So, let Not our thoughts go out only to our dear health services warriors alone; rather, let us also recognise the tremendous effort of others; the ones enforcing the lockdown - our oft rebuked police personnel & security establishment; those in the seldom acknowledged pvt security services - who are earning "minimum' (or less) wages and still miraculously showing up for duty; the overlooked daily workers who are selflessly out collecting our garbage; the drivers and the labourers who are stubbornly striving to ensure essential commodities reach us; and several others who are Out - Just so You and I can Stay In.
So, pause a moment I pray, and reflect - and ask yourself - if I am in a position of authority, what might I do to ease the bunder they carry?
- maybe by way of a simple gesture,
- maybe a nod to acknowledge their significance,
- maybe one could be more accommodating but without compromising,
- maybe introduce some flexibility in their work hours while still accomplishing the task at hand,
- maybe act a bit more courteous for a change, maybe smile and address them by name,
- and maybe realise that its not always about Me, Myself and I.
