New Virus C1M1

Om Sairam
So much media hype !
As though now in India there are only
two categories of People.
Already infected. And yet tobe infected.
By Swine Flu that is.

All the channels suffer from
Attention Deficiency Syndrome-
and die for our eyeballs !

Some day H1N1 will also go the SARS way.
But the more virulent one- C1M1 virus may not.
It will mutate and keep haunting.
The Consumerism- Materialism Virus(C1M1)
that is ruthlessly infecting our youth.

When infected, the symptoms are apparent.
Their jaundiced eyes see only 'money' in everything.
Eyes pop out when passing through a 'Mall'.
Any foreign brand is music to the ears.
Cellphone treated as one more Sense Organ!!
Heart beats in tandem with Sensex.
Pt.moves around nose up in the air
everytime the company gives a rise.
Drools over the 'dumb' Pizzas
leaving yummy homemade stuff.
Look down upon the 'junta' around
who go to temple and pray
and wait for good days to come.
If so, Boy, its sureshot C1M1 !

Go for second opinion?
There they will discover more.
'Borrow-n-blow up' itching all over.
No focus. Jumping jobs like surfing channels.
Strong feeling that going to 'States' is the real 'Haj'.
'Get and forget'-"Thanklessness" in bloodstream.
Contempt for elders, a part of Psyche.
What Values? Only Snob Values.

Now confirmed C1M1 !
Rush. 'Gone case' as they say.

Millions are infected by C1M1.
And spreading it fast.
This is the real Pandemic.
H1N1 is in fact a typo done by some dumb typist.
What they actually mean is C1M1.
(Gazette notification for this correction on the way).

No mundane masks can help.
Nor can any worldly vaccines.

We have a duty to rescue these 'infected' ones
before they are washed off by the
harsh winds of Reality.

Is there no Antidote to this deadly C1M1 virus?

Yes. Thank God.There is a vaccine.
Our own version of TAMIFLU.
It also has tobe administered as soon as
the symptom starts without waiting for swab tests.
Read more about it.

'Selfless Seva' is the best antidote for C1M1.
Because it is God's own domain,
He takes special care for the ones
who go for this treatment.

Believe. It works. Works wonders.

If a youth discards a Pizza and 'diverts'
the money to a footpath cancer kid's milk in Parel,
he can see a set of tearful eyes thanking in silence.
That will invoke all the dormant goodness in him
that will fight C1M1 tooth and nail and chase away.

If a youth curtails a couple of 'spins'
in his gas guzzling car with 'friends' and 'diverts'
that money saved, to an abandoned patient
in an old age home for her medicines,
he can see a trembling hand struggling to
join to bless him, the joy, a million joy rides
cannot give in his lifetime.
What C1M1? No virus can ever attack.

At ChemburSeva we have a Self-Help 'Seva' Dispensary
with customised plug-n-play seva models having
On site and offsite deliverables.

So what is our role at ChemburSeva?
Just play the 'last mile'!
Connecting the good souls wanting to help
and the poor souls wanting tobe helped.
We connect and Vanish.
