SEWABSNL CHQ, with folded hands wholeheartedly request all members, functionaries to be cautious from ongoing frightful second wave of covid-19
All the news channels and social medias almost are all day long only showing hospitals with full of covid critical patients, people scrambling around for hospital beds, terrifying oxygen crisis in the national capital, rushing over a wide area for widespread shortage of oxygen cylinders, dying huge number of people, overwhelmed crematoriums, monstrous burning pyres etc.
The horror stories of covid-19 are disturbing. From testing for infection to finding a bed, oxygen, icu and medicines everything has now become a nightmare. In some major cities of the country, people are dying on the streets outside hospitals due to lack of space in hospitals. And even cremating or burying the covid dead is a huge matter of concern. Long queues before crematoriums and newer places or lands allotted as burial grounds depict the sorry state of affairs. In many places people are being forced by crematoriums for mass funeral pyres as funeral services become overwhelmed. As on 1st june-2021, more than 3.54 million confirmed deaths attributed to covid-19, making it one of the deadliest pandemic in the history of the world. As on Ist June-2021, dead record of India is more than 3,40,000 and daily dead average is around 4,000. This is the present prevailing worst scenario we have been witnessing everywhere.
Now let’s come to our Bsnl.

We have so far lost more than 200 employees due to this covid-19.
It is very tragic that we could not see the dead bodies of our colleagues or close ones due to the life threatening severe virus spread and strict conditions laid down by government for safety reasons. We cannot see any covid affected friends or relatives even in the hospital during their treatment. Further, total lock downs prevents us to move from home which causes great hardship, depression and mental agony. Apart from the fact that we are unable to attend even any other programs, functions and meeting friends, well-wishers, relatives and higher-ups.
With this, with folded hands, bowed heads, we seriously request all our friends members, office bearers and leadsrs of SEWA to stay safe by taking some simple precautions such as consulting doctors on the day one of any symptoms without waiting or hesitation before damaging the organs, physical distancing, wearing a safetiest mask, avoiding crowds, cleaning hands, coughing into a bent elbow or tissue and avoiding close contact with someone who is sick and please Check local advice where you live and work. Along with these covid protocols, please practice some light Exercise and Vipashna or Yoga for prevention and to increase immunity.
