We are here to start the 5th month of this year i.e. May of 2020 and we are hearing only heartbreaking and distressing news from all over the world we and don’t want any other tragic news in upcoming days. This year is showing the different shades of black days by breaking our bonds and taking the lives of millions of people.
January was the month where everyone was thinking ways to avoid the stress of World War III and then we succeeded in avoiding it but in return earth dazed by a pandemic which killed lakhs and lakhs of people around the whole world. Due to this pandemic, the death numbers are so high that in some countries, there was no place to even bury the dead bodies.
In February, the month started with the Australian bushfire which affected the earth’s atmosphere and killed many innocent animals in the 3-week fire. On the other side, we saw the starting of the spread of the coronavirus. Riots were also started in Delhi when the President of US Donald Trump has visited India during the ‘Namaste Trump’ ceremony. The riots nearly killed 25 people and the violence left the streets of North-East Delhi in flames. As a result, many people living in and near that riot-affected area started to move out of that area.
In March we saw much communal tension across the country due to the CAA and NRC where Italy faced the deadliest day as many people died due to the coronavirus. Millions of citizens in India were placed in lockdown due to coronavirus spread. Many events got postponed like Olympics, IPL matches, and many others due to Covid-19.
Now in April, the coronavirus cases across the globe crossed one million. But during this pandemic, we lost our two shining stars and icons of Bollywood cinema. The actor from the films like Life of Pie, Jurassic World, and Slumdog Millionaire, Irrfan Khan died at the age of 53 after a long battle of the Tumor. On the very next consecutive day of Irrfan Khan’s death, Veteran Actor Rishi Kapoor had also died at the age of 67 after a two year battle with Cancer. The two actors left the world amid this pandemic.
In short, we can say that this year is not at all good in any sense. We also worried that what will be next in the coming months. Should we get any good news or bad news like this? Let’s hope something better in the future.
