Well above is a whatsapp forwarded message and in the real world the patient is me and the Doctor is my wife, who is now sick and tired of trying on any new medicine to boast immunity!!
So कोरोना काण्ड हुआ and it had me shit scared with waves of varied feelings hitting me one after another. पहले थोड़ा defiant होने का ढोंग करा और उदयपुर में positive cases आने के बाद वोह ढोंग भी हवा हो गया. फिर डरना चालू करा तो बेहतर recover rate रेट और vaccine की खबर सुन कर फिर थोड़े चौड़े घुमने लगे ही थे और शहर में कोरोना विस्फोट हो गया. 3 महीने के बाद इसी अच्छी-बुरी खबर के साथ जीना सिख रहे हैं.
The one thing that remained unchanged was the need to boost immunity, but again immunity doesn’t have a barometer by which it can measured. To measure when one needs it and when one needs to discontinue the supplements. Well I for one ensured most of my family members lived by the maxim: Better Safe than Sorry!!
Thus the need to boost immunity started with me calling up my Ayurvedic medicine sources luckily for me and unluckily for my members who became unwilling guinea pigs on this quest of boosting immunity, one of our neighbours runs an Ayurvedic Medicine Store.
So the first dose of immunity started in the month of March with some immunity syrups. Then came Rajiv Bajaj’s famous whatsapp messages about the benefits of Homeopathy and thus we all took the CAMPHORA – 1.
Because of the lockdown the immunity syrups were in short supply and I needed the daily immunity boosters thus came the homemade bitter powder: a concoction of God knows how many dry spices to be taken once a day.
I wanted more so I pestered and pestered my neighbor and who suggested some kind of Chaywanprash, the taste of which I have abhorred since my school days. But क्या करें, कोरोना के लिए वोह भी खाया and finally he had to tell me, बस भैया इससे ज्यादा किसी और चीज़ की ज़रुरत नहीं है!!
Besides the above there was lukewarm water, allopathic self-medication for even a slight deviance from the normal, less intake of cold-substances, washing hands, sanitizer, baths etc. etc…
Anything to keep this Corona at an arms’s distance or like they say 2 गज दूर.
सोच रहा हूँ की अब भी कुछ गड़बड़ हो गयी तो किसी आश्रम में शरण ले लूँगा !!
GO CORONA GO !!
