Why Corona Why

Dear Corona,

Why have you come

Whence have you come

When would you go

Whither would you go

Are there other planets

And dimensions that you roam?

Corona, O mighty Corona

Do tell us all that you know!

O yee humans

I am a tiny little virus

What would I know

That you already don’t!

Yet however small and however little

I am part of the One Big Whole!

I shall do my bit and leave

As others before me have

I know it and accept it

I don’t have grand dreams!

But yee mighty humans

Who are blessed

With such INTELLECT and


Why do you kill?

Oh why, humans, why

do you suppress

And subjugate

Your very own

Is there no end

To your greed?

Like me you too shall leave

You too shall have to go back

Like others before you

But you still don’t learn

And you still don’t see

That you too are a nothing

Just like me!

O humans, wake up

Wake up before you

Are smothered and vanquished

Just like me and the likes of me!

Kill me if you would

But don’t hate me

For: Hate consumes the Hater

And not the one hated.

How many vaccines

Would you make

How many remedies

Would you use

Mightier viruses would come

And shall keep coming too

Till you learn …

Till you learn

To become more humane

Till you learn

To become more kind,

And till you learn

Oh yes, till you learn

To conquer your very own


For I am not your enemy

It is within you

And it is your EGO


And not the tiny me!!

Let go of your Ego

And let go of your Pride

Bow down with Humility

Then you shall learn

That there is no separation

We are all ONE – LOVE

  1. Yes uncle, a few years after this, when everything will be back to normal it will feel as if it was all a dream. We humans repent but again repeat. 😊❤️

  2. Thank you so much Rishika. I have found my poetic talent in my blogging journey 😊
    I am waiting to hear the good news from you 😊

  3. Thank you so much Samreen. God, I think , does nothing but love us. He is both Love and Law. Unless and until we learn and behave some Covid or other would keep happening. Thank God it is all a dream 😇

  4. Really, why Corona why??? We do not have an answer to it, I just think God has given us another opportunity or may be has just shown its “that divine force” who owns this world and want us to know to take care of it until it’s too late. Very well written Uncle. 😊❤️🤗

  5. I feel that the Coronavirus is just Mother Nature’s way of punishing us for all the inhumane and horrific things we’ve done.
    Loved reading this spectacular poem, by the way. It’s quite an amazing take on the current situation!

  6. Beautiful composition Ashokji, true we are today horrified by this pandemic and yet forget the human brought tragedies of the past, and are ready to bring even more in the future. This virus had killed so many humans and is thus noticed, the human race almost killed our beautiful earth before it was noticed, yet we continue on our ways towards inevitable destruction, inspite of our capability of intelligent thinking. Love the message that is passed so well.

    Don’t love corona though 😃 hope it goes back to whatever planet it came from …

  7. Thank you so much Arv for your deep and meaningful thoughts.

    Nature’s nature is balance! I am sure overall consciousness would grow post Corona. Let us do our best and let God take care of the rest 😊🙏

  8. So well explained. Many say this pandemic is a wake up call and an alarm bell. I certainly can’t say if it’s true but I do know humans have been behaving in not so desirable way. The cause of wiping out of many species from this planet, the greed is certainly behind all this. I wish we could understand that this planet does not belong to us. we need to share this with other living beings. Is coronavirus a good lesson towards this realization? Maybe!

  9. Corona is just a small thing and I always say there is far more worse in the mind the ego, the harm being done to each other and innocents. Too true have to learn to be kind and love each other until we learn we will repeat the same old path over and over again.

  10. Wonderful and excellent poem on Corona, Ashok. I enjoyed every word of your poem. So much truth in what we humans have done on this planet. Let us all pray to our One and Only God that he takes all this away and we all learn to live in harmony and peace with each other.

  11. It would happen Radhika. There is no other way. But looks like we shall have to suffer more before we turn to Nature/God.

    Let us hope and pray for the best 😊👏

  12. You’re welcome..I was so moved by your poetry, it led me to a chain of readings and new writeups. Thank you for traversing through my blog. Much love.

  13. This is the first poem I’m reading on Corona tonight, and it’s just so compelling, so true, and touching! Wondering if my first is the best:)

  14. The heaviness, it comes and goes. I take refuge in digging through the stats and latest developments, doing research so I can dispel misinformation for family and friends. We’re all in this together. Wishing you lighter days ahead. 🙂
    P.S: Feel free to drop a ‘hello’ on my blog.

  15. All the best my young friend. I was like that: curious and thirsty for knowledge, information! I am still curious – to know and understand deeper realities. And have replaced information with wisdom 😊
    You are doing good Betul 😊🤗

  16. Wow, good for you!
    I don’t actually fear it. I am just curious:) I think I will slowly stop being online a lot because I am already getting bored!

  17. 😊😛
    I stopped watching TV/News and stopped getting newspaper more than ten years back. Filled with negativity
    The biggest virus around is Fear 😌
    All the best Betul.

  18. That is exactly how I see this time too and I do meditate more too. But I also want to follow up on the news because I am too curious, hence the distractions:(

  19. Ohki. Why is it taking longer to concentrate Betul?
    I am good. We are all fine. In fact I am enjoying being with myself – longer meditations, more thinking, more writing 😊 God sent time for me 😊🙏

  20. Thank you so much Betul, for your kind words and insight. Have been remembering you. Hope all is well with you. Are you able to do your research in the current scenario?

  21. Very well written…Karma / Nature hits back when humans stop carrying about earth & its living creatures in any form…The flow of air, the stream of water…the fire & the earth included…

  22. Thank you so much Aarti. Last month I wrote on How to Live in today’s tumultuous times – based on Guruji’s teachings and prompted by Br. Chidanandaji’s talk. It is even more relevant today.

  23. Thank you so much Nidheesh. The universe is always talking to us. We have become deaf to finer frequencies 😊
    Shall surely look it up.

  24. Good perspective on the current situation. If only humans would learn to live peacefully with each other with compassion and thoughtfulness. Life is so short to be anything but kind. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and these writings. 🙏

  25. Very true..we are small beings in this mighty universe..we need to be more humble..everything happens for a reason.

  26. Don’t worry about it Arti. Once Pharma industry has made a few billion dollars it would be gone
    1-2 persons die every day in Pune driving without helmet.
    More than 6000 people die in India every month driving wrong side of the road 😛
    And lacs die with wrong diagnosis or wrong medicine.
    Take basic precautions and chill

  27. It’s not the tiny virus that’s deadly, but indeed the mighty greed of Pharma mafia 😊
