    Radhika thats actually kind of traumatizing. To get or not to get, though i am certain about the latter !

      Yes, very confusing. I guess many will wait and watch before getting the shot.

        True. Our hearts are telling us not to do it. Moreover seeing the condition world over Indian immunity seems to have done much well.

        True that. Hope we fully flatten the curve and erase it completely.

    Aptly captured emotions on the vaccine and the fear. Everything feels so new and worries ailing us. Hope humanity triumphs and we are cured of all maladies.

    As we learn in marketing, people want a hole in the wall, not a drilling machine. The point is getting back to a normal life — how and why needs to be answered before arriving at a decision. Will it help me travel, call the maids in, go without a mask? I guess sanitisation procedures are getting ingrained in household routines and will stay.

    Radhika, your poem is of the moment and written with tight finesse … however, everyone I know is only too happy to have the vaccine and try to find some way back to semblance of our lives before, to see our loved ones. It’s been SO long now and the horrific death count in the U.K. and USA is relentless, overwhelming.

      Agree Annika. It is heart breaking to read about the massive deaths… something now close to the world war numbers.
      In India the vaccine has received a decent acceptance with the health care workers inoculated in the first round. No major adverse reactions. So that is positive news. But people at large are still sceptical about its efficacy. Keeping fingers crossed.

    True and fantastic Tanka, Radhika. We are all so uncertain about the vaccine. Who knows what will happen and how many will be given and when.

    You captured a very big picture perfectly in your very short poem. While it is very encouraging that the vaccine is ready – I too have mixed feelings about it.

    We are at crossroads and you have captured the indecision very beautifully and poetically Radhika. The reason for indecision is true, yet this seems to offer the one way out for the world, what with second and third waves coming. I am for vaccination, and hopefully the results have not shown much adverse effects till now.

      Yes, it’s very encouraging that there have been no major adverse effects of the vaccine. I guess with time people will be more open to getting themselves vaccinated. Thanks Deb. Hopefully things will settle down soon.

    You reached the heart of the matter. Almost everything has a risk and a reward. I am uncertain if the real risks and the real rewards have been articulated to the society as a whole. Hope the truth wins out, and we eventually reach a better place.
