STORIES OF FEAR

Since Corona is a virus and therefore it can only be perceived through experiences and stories of somebody else’s experience (until observed under a microscope of course), the fear of the virus and its impact manifested itself from the stories of deaths. But since the fear decreases over a period of time as humanity gets used to the idea, parallel stories of the impact of the pandemic started emerging in my house, where my father started to ask us to have the ’Patanjali kadha’ to improve our immunity or else ‘we will have to use disgusting toilets of the quarantine centres’. It is absurd since he chose to scare me with a dirty toilet against death. He tries to bring the virus into the everyday for us to associate with the impact of the pandemic.
