Fear is in the air and I am not entirely exempt from it. Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic began wreaking havoc, prompting our bustling and normally boisterous nation to slip into an eerily quiet lockdown, I have started displaying a phobia—that of touching doorknobs. Be it at home or office, I am rudely kicking open doors, adhering to a hands-off policy.

That I am using my legs is good. Desperate times need desperate measures, and this certainly is one time when we need frantic steps to save ourselves from the rampaging novel coronavirus. That we all are washing our hands with soap, both furiously and intermittently, to me has a larger meaning. For me, the current emergency we are confronted with is no time for mere handwringing. Notwithstanding the inconvenience and disruptions caused, we must continue to be proactive and do whatever it takes to win this war against the pandemic.
