Finally, the water being carried from the ocean by the agency of clouds fell on the land.  And who wouldn’t be ecstatic at the first sniff of Petrichor as monsoon announced itself in the year 2019. But as Voltaire said,

With great power comes great responsibility – Voltaire

the Health Department would say

With great Monsoon (weather forecast validated) come great diseases”.

You must know how Sparta protected ancient Greece from the Persian invasion, although for 7 days, including a famous battle led by King Leonidas (300 – film); similarly, we need to protect ourselves from this invasion by diseases, but for at least 4 months. This is because with monsoon comes an outnumbering army of bacteria, fungi and viruses to invade your bodies like in no season round the year. Do you think you can escape this battle? You cannot. You think you can stay home and be protected, You won’t. Because You’ll go out in rains to work, to school, to colleges, to markets, and in some cases more in desire than in coercion, to enjoy the rains.

  • Influenza
  • Cholera
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis A
  • Dengue
  • Malaria
  • Viral fever
  • Food poisoning
  • Love (we have evidence)

The good news is, We know what to do to protect ourselves; which reminds me of the famous reply of Sparta to Philip of Macedon.

Philip of Macedon: “You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city.” 

Spartans’ reply:  “If.”
