Just like overheating a fabric leaves a hole within it, holding on to an issue or flagging an idea too long amid moving waters is bound to drown or force the water to change colors with its connection. When a child is born, he opens his eyes to a world, which according to him, is full of joy and pomp, but little does he know that the development of mind, morals, principles, is based on the tools used to give shape to his skills. It is said that a fish cannot be taught how to swim, but it does have a choice in which waters to swim and how turbulence is going to pace its fins.
In contemporary times, when people are struggling in deep waters, facing tides after tides of COVID-19, ECONOMIC DEPRESSION, SOCIAL ISOLATION, UNEMPLOYMENT, DEPRESSION, etc., joining hands together and giving support is the best way out. We need to show that we are more human than just an elegy used to describe modern primates as human beings.
Undoubtedly, the saw is outrightly imbalanced, and for the needle to stand vertical, the ‘better-abled’ need to shed their veil of selfishness, greed, and the blanket of excesses for the very poor.

A century of Pax Britannica was believed to carry with itself the blunt harpoons of peace and non-imperialism and was believed to be the most peaceful century where there was no annexation or fringy elements of anti-imperialism toiled. Hence, the contemporary times call for a modified and edited version of it to bring a choir of music that not only soothes the ears of an individual or a group but effects all positively.
Faces that yet think of saving one life while they can save the lives of thousand others need desperate measures. People with patience and resilience, who can skim through a fat collection to get that one thing to settle the odds can be as essential as oxygen to the dying. In the rightful duty to fill sturdy bellies, extraction should be done to the extent that replenishment is not malnourished—leaving a void for a long time. The solar system as a whole is believed to be a family protecting each other, whilst we are just humans and can strive for better than just protecting and can lend a strong shoulder to everyone.
