Nisarga

That’s the name given to the current cyclone hitting the western coast of India. More specifically, it is a calamity given the name with many meanings. In Kannada, my mother-tongue, it means nature. I am sure that not a single cyclone I’m aware of has such a beautiful name and at the same time fitting the disaster’s behaviour. In Bengali, it means universe. In Hindi, it means ‘to leave.’

I guess we try to calm ourselves by naming such disasters in their sweetest form. We always look for the better. And, this is the nature’s call. Nisarga’s.

    1. We don’t stop battling with the miseries. It is making us stronger, but also very tired. This is more of a global issue than just India and people don’t really see it this way because of the forgotten sense of being global and together as humans. Thank you, Sue. You’re awesome 😀

      1. Agreed! Hopefully the virus will bring more attention to more things worldwide which have long needed our attention, but have gone unnoticed or ignored. All the best!
