Today I operated a cargo flight from Mumbai to Ahmedabad.
It was late evening departure from Mumbai. To be safer, I had decided to drive down to the airport in my own car instead of travelling with the chauffeur. While driving I noticed that people were roaming around everywhere. Especially in areas like Mankhurd, Govandi, Chembur, Kurla, Kalina, Vakola, Santacruz. I even saw a guy with his girlfriend, riding a motorbike at a speed more than 100 km/hr without a helmet and protective face mask. Citizens were having evening walk, ladies were gossiping outside their houses, Men were in groups all around, kids were playing fearlessly.
What is wrong with these people. No wonder why Covid-19 cases are increasing exponentially in Mumbai. I really got sacred after seeing all this. May God bless this city!
Airport was deserted, aircraft were grounded, everybody was in distress. I always saw the Mumbai airport very crowded but today was different. It felt like I was going on a mission and the world is about to end. Today I am really disturbed to see my workplace turning into desert.
One tiny virus has destroyed everything. Sometimes I feel this is human karma. We destroyed nature and it’s our time to get destroyed!
