he scenes nowadays at various public parks in Kashmir districts are self-explanatory. People are itching to leave their homes despite the increase in Covid cases. Since the reopening of various parks and gardens, there are literal traffic jams at a lot of places. Why this hurry? What is more important than life and security that these people want to achieve? What is the reason to press our own petty agenda to meet friends and relatives for a casual chat in such a situation?
Having a strong number of people working in foreign lands Kashmir always needed to be extra careful. A point in case is the low number of cases in Jammu. Jammu is economically on s higher turf as compared to Kashmir but the chunk of population which is working in foreign lands is quite low in Jammu.
It is amazing to see how Covid people so cunningly fear to get vaccinated and asymptomatically end up spreading virus to scores of other people. Once things are back to normal one would demand a strong cases against these people. For the time being containing virus should be the top priority.
The cases are increasing in Kashmir and that too at a time when government is opening gardens. As we have said before, the limited healthcare system we have, we cannot afford so many number of cases. May good sense prevail.
