Reflective Short Piece on the Situation in India: From Coronavirus to Locust Attack to Cyclones
By: ADN’s Junior Champion, Arkoneil Ghosh
“While India as a nation continues to fight Coronavirus, here comes the Locust attack, which has destroyed the crops in Northern India, followed by the Super Cyclonic Storm Amphan sweeping away many people from their land, making them homeless and surrounded by miseries. Maharashtra (a state in western India bordering on the Arabian Sea) is ready to welcome Nisarga the cyclone, which is expected to bring more disaster in our life.
Living amidst insecurity is becoming a part of our life. All that we can do is just take preventive measures. Getting back to school is becoming a dream now.
2020 has been bringing in a lot of disasters. I was introduced recently to Newton’s third law, nature is giving back and we are not prepared to accept it.”
