23 Warning signs of Epidemic of Ignorance

Ignorance

The ostrich-approach of burying your head in the sand, when confronting your areas of weakness, becomes a self-set trigger for failure Archibald Marwizi

Do you agree Ignorance is bliss ?

I can say the above quote literally translating into illiteracy in the present circumstances of coronal virus scare.

Simply put it in Thomas Gray’s words…“what you don’t know can’t hurt you”

“ignorance is a bliss” true in ordinary situations,but these are not ordinary days and we are faced with a serious situation, you can call it ‘Life & death situation’

When corona virus has become pandemic,we are taught personal hygiene,social distancing,wearing facial mask etc etc.

People are genuinely concerned and worried a lot.

But here the worry is of different type happening with so called Saner people putting the precious lives in jeopardy.

Rationality is the first causality in any global crisis,with people becoming emotional !

Social media not helping in avoiding the spread of fake news/ fake alerts.

In times of crisis of this nature,people are becoming emotional !

Fakery Avatars are appearing as the saviors !! Who are they ?

  • Unqualified Health advisers
  • Home remedies
  • Miracle cures by Babas / Gurus
  • Conspiracy theories
  • Unscientific claims of virus transmission
  • Xenophobia

I shall give some examples of what FAKE AVATARS doing things, to scare the virus which according to them is the best solution,which is not true scientifically.

How to put an end to these 23 idiotic thoughts !!

Have a heartfelt laugh !!😆

  1. Alcohol consumption helps because alcohol destroys the virus🍷
  2. Keep the body hot by avoiding ice cream,and virus dies because of the heat in the body♨️
  3. Holding hair dryer close to one’s throat will destroy the virus
  4. Drink water every 15 minutes,virus washed out of the body quickly🍺
  5. Bovine urine can fight the virus🐄
  6. One company selling alcohol free hand sanitiser🤔
  7. Medications from homoeo,Ayurveda & sidda💊
  8. Clapping hands can either kill the virus👏or virus is thrown out outright.
  9. Some say the news of virus becoming pandemic itself is a fake news📰
  10. A few thinking, it’s end of the world anyhow and no amount of precautions help🌐
  11. Some telling since India has a hot climate,the virus dies a natural death🔥
  12. Sale of anti corona mattress🛏️
  13. ‘Go corona go’ songs as if the virus is shooed away with these songs🚶
  14. Poultry products can spread the virus🐥
  15. Vegetarians are safe from corona virus🍆
  16. Eat garlic / Ginger to enhance immunity against the virus.
  17. Desert the pets,they can spread the corona infection🐕
  18. Receiving a letter or package from China is unsafe👜
  19. Rinse nose with saline helps prevent the infection👃
  20. Avoid…..made in China food products at any cost🈵
  21. Bat soups & snakes are responsible for the outbreak🍵🦇🐍
  22. Newspapers spread corona virus hence unsafe.Don’ touch or read 🗞️.
  23. Touching Currency notes- too dangerous.💲🏧

I can go on….but how to stop these myths going viral….I am totally lost.

Do you have an Ostrich-Approach ?

God does not call us to rest seven days a week with our head in the sand. He calls us to make an impact wherever we are     Phil Callaway

A word about ‘Ostrich Approach’-I don’t know,who invented this term- a reference to the popular notion that Ostrich hides from dangers by burying its head in the sand…….an insult to this wonderful creature.Why will an ostrich bury its head in the sand,it dies of suffocation.And the fact is it never does.

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Head Gear

Helmet,Head protection,Head gear,Head injuries,Flower,

No..No… I am not talking about the Helmet, that the Indian Lady is wearing while riding the two wheeler and the lessons regarding advantages of wearing helmet etc. etc

If you look a bit closely…you notice that the woman is wearing tightly knit jasmine flowers

why the Indian women,especially those from South India wear the flowers on their hair without fail, everyday?

One Mr. Ramdoss in ‘Yahoo Answers’ got annoyed for this question and replied like this.

‘This is a tradition in India. Just like this there are social and fashion traditions in other parts of the world also. Why don’t you question them? Why does a man wear a tie in front, not at the backside? Stupid question, is it not ? It is stupid to ask a woman in India why she wears flowers. It is stupid to ask a widow in India why she does not wear flowers or wear a red spot on her forehead. This way you can go on questioning every custom all over the world. Why do you question the customs and practices of India alone. When the other parts of the world were cavemen, India had a great civilization working’.

But I felt it would have been proper for him to explain the importance/significance/purpose of Indian women wearing flowers on their hair so that people from other Cultures/Backgrounds can appreciate the explanation given.

Every morning, the women religiously put on the flower strands on their head after a bath. These flower strands definitely make the women look beautiful (For Indians atleast, I don’t know how the westerners feel about wearing flower on the hair).

Flowers are a symbol of love, good luck, happiness and prosperity.

In Indian household , a girl is supposed to wear flowers on her hair because it brings happiness to the family and prosperity to all the members.

Wearing flowers on the hair is the symbol that Goddess Lakshmi ( Goddess of Wealth ) is residing in the house and that wealth will never leave the house.

Jasmine ,Rose and Hibiscus are common ,jasmine being the favorite.

Please enrich me further if such things are seen in the western world and if it is so…what is the idea of wearing the flowers on hair, from westerners point of view ?

Thanks in advance for sharing your views.

Tension Free…. Stress Free…you think it’s a distant dream ?

As you are busy with fast paced life , you are left with lots of tension,anxiety resulting in stress.you start thinking as if all the problems happening to you only.

Just relax.All of are undergoing the same, at one time or the other.You can neither run away from the problems, nor start dreaming of positive thoughts,The two popular advices..easier said than followed…

Just listen to the quotes by unknown and known wise souls.

If a problem can be solved, no need to worry about it. If a problem cannot be solved what is the use of worrying?

Worries and tensions are like birds , We cannot stop them from flying near us, But we can certainly stop them from making a nest in our mind.

The tension you feel from one person may be the tension you are causing for another.

Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes away today’s peace.

Stress is the trash of modern life we all generate it, but if you don’t dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life.

Maturity is achieved when a person accepts life as full of tension. – Joshua L. Liebman

Stress is caused by being ‘here’ but wanting to be ‘there.’
– Eckhart Tolle

How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then to rest afterward.
– Spanish proverb
