What’s Different This Thanksgiving?

Hello friends and fellow bloggers! To start with, let me wish one and all a very happy Thanksgiving. May God always bless us all with the feeling of expressing gratitude so that we can spread more and more happiness, satisfaction and values in this fast-changing world.

As we all know, the world over, this year has been tough; tough to the extent that our health, patience and monetary reliance have been tested to their extreme. This morning when I woke up, I started receiving messages of friends and well-wishers conveying gratitude on Thanksgiving. This made me think, “Is one day or one week enough for this thankfulness?” I mean, look at this year. How have our own errors, stubbornness and ungratefulness have treated us all year round. But then looking back also brought a smile to my face because of the angels that God sent for us to overcome or deal with the scary pandemic of COVID-19. These angels are all the frontline people working day in and day out to make our lives healthier putting their own lives at risk. These frontline warriors are our true heroes and I feel that this Thanksgiving should be dedicated to them. I also strongly feel that each and every day of this year was Thanksgiving because these corona warriors left no stone unturned to help this world sustain itself till date.

Globally, we have noticed healthcare workers, medical staff, police, street sweepers, cleaners, volunteers, ambulance guards and many more of such corona fighters who, without thinking of their own life even for a moment, simply jumped in to bring back smiles to millions. A heartfelt Thank You to all of them for keeping us safe and healthy amidst this global crisis. I feel a true Thanksgiving would be the one to express our gratitude for these heroes and sheroes of this modern world who proved that humanity is still alive.

Even during these testing times; we saw young and old, rich and poor, elite and commoner came forward together to lend their helping hand for the sake of the needy. We saw food supplies, monetary donations, supplies of essential goods and much more pouring in from every corner of this world. These humanitarian efforts have brought a positive wave in this universe in a way that these efforts will be remembered indefinitely and never be forgotten. These efforts and these frontline warriors really grab a big Thank You.

I came across many incidences where the corona fighters set an example for the world to act generously towards humanity. An 80-year-old granny started making Rotis for food packets to be delivered to hospital doctors and nurses. A known Indian woman in UK still prepares and delivers home-cooked meals to various hospitals and homeless people. A couple of doctors in Mumbai, India brought their community together to set up COVID hospital in a huge playground. A teenager from Hyderabad, India set up a fundraiser and helped supply hundreds of packets of essential food products to those in crisis. A wealthy man in the US gave up his mansion to set up a COVID care centre. Another such US ambulance guard carried corpses on his shoulders to cremation sites as all other ambulances were engaged in patient treatments. Indian Railways gave away a massive number of train coaches in many states to build up isolated compartments for treatment of COVID patients.

The above are just a few illustrations of humanity above duty and really deserve gratitude. Let us all thank these real warriors who stood and are still standing like pillars to fight this demon virus and gift us our deserved lives. A big Thank You corona warriors for being what you are that made this world what it is today. Lets make this Thanksgiving different by dedicating it to the real frontline warriors without whom our existence was absolutely impossible.


Rise and shine.

“Rise and Shine” is my life long-standing "Mantra" that I follow. I am a travel enthusiast. Travelling gives me energy and rejuvinates me, while writing relieves my stress and creates positive vibes within. I believe in making every little contribution towards making this world a better place for the coming generations to live in and breathe free. We should all understand and accept the fact that we are blessed with this existence as humans and utilize this bliss to help the unprivileged by making maximum humanitarian efforts. Gratitude is a bliss. Never miss a chance to express your gratitude especially towards the amazing God gift called "Nature". Have courage and be kind to others. Respect and discipline should be your master armours to fight the evil of overconfidence and arrogance. Chase your dreams, stand for and by yourself, spread love and kindness, act smart, don't let others ruin you in anyway and above all make all necessary efforts to rise and shine bright. Self-respect and self-confidence along with kindness and generosity should be the values by which people should reognize and remember you. Rise and Shine.
