Swine Flu has hit Velachery, Chennai. One young child lost his life! The parents must be distraught. Appalling! Some of the comments that people make in the face of disaster. Possibly their way of coping but it reeks of insensitivity.
To add to all this, the media will go to any extent to makes you feel vulnerable and almost hysterical !
Under parental pressure and of course exhibiting caution, a lot of schools in Velachery , including Anush's have declared leave at least till this weekend. Anush is upset to be missing school!! She said " Why there is no school? I love school amma. I will feel bored a home na?"
A doc was called in by her school yesterday and gave gyaan to students and teachers. I am told, he also reiterated the need NOT to panic.
I am a little concerned about Navy who moves around quite a bit, interacting with a lot of people.
But I will follow the doc's advice and not panic. ( though I am rather happy we have been most of time in the Pallikarnai home and not the Velachery one)
