When I look back at the last 2 years, 2020 and 2021 which will be ending pretty soon, there are so many things which we have learnt and also unlearnt. What have I learnt as a person and also as an administrator working on the front lines is that nothing is permanent, and all we can do is put in all our energies together as a family, as a community, as a nation, as a world, in fighting against odds to overcome any kind of adversity that we might face. The indomitable will of our kind to survive was so much at display during the last two years, when we as a species faced the biggest threat to our existence in recent times.
But at the same time, there is a lot that we have unlearnt. And if we haven't done so yet, we must do it immediately before we perish. What we should have unlearnt by now is our greed, the unlimited lust for everything we want, the arrogance with which we accord ourselves the status of rulers of the universe. I assume and hope that this period has brought back the oft-forgotten and ridiculed humility that we need to observe not just with our fellow brethren but with people who are different from us, with animals, with nature and with anything and everything that we feel entitled to.
