In the midst of a pandemic, it is difficult to understand who is right. But now we all have to agree that in the blind race of development we have done a lot of damage to nature and to ourselves. Today we are in a self-isolation lockdown with our own opinions.
Maybe the time of lockdown is giving all of us the opportunity to contemplate ourselves. The progress made by mankind has been useful till now, but what has happened now? Have we made a sudden mistake? Or was what we have done up to till now hollow? Who has brought the entire human race to its knees? Are we ourselves responsible for this? Was the way we exploited nature was appropriate? Or is nature balancing? I think the lockdown is a good opportunity to think about our good future - and the mistakes we have made.
