A Child’s Diary: Saee Yogesh Kokil’s Corona Lockdown Days

We are encouraging children to write diaries and share with us. We are presenting Saee Yogesh Kokil, a 13-year old girl, who lives in Pune, India. Here are her thoughts as shared by her mother (no edits, no filters):

June 8, 2020

Sadness of destruction defeated my heart….

In this week it was as if the world is coming to an end…

On Wednesday the western coast of India was hit by a cyclone named ’Nisarga’. So, the weather was windy full of aggression from the God, I believe.

 And a disheartening incident took place on 27th May in a literate state of India, Kerala. 

It was: A pregnant elephant in search of food entered a village. Where the first and last mistake she did was, that trusted the humans, she was given a pineapple filled with crackers to eat. When it burst in her mouth, she ran but neither a single home was crushed, nor a person was hurt. Lastly to soothe her throat she sat in water and died there shortly at 4 pm.

We probably think demons to be with horns and long nails but there aren’t like that there are around us full of cruelty. Shame on such people…

I pray to god we don’t want that technology which disappears our common sense and kindness towards existing life, which is a property of nature.

It was nothing great in this week to tell.

News of trees falling, people dying, animals left alone on street. When I imagine such things, I think that after all we are facing the punishment of what we did earlier……

  When mother earth was asking for a helping hand, we ran away now we pray her to save us; referring ourselves as her children. Why should a mother help if the child betrays? But still a mother has a heart, she keeps protecting her child till her end….

But I am sure that we humans will one day cease to live.

I do think that the end of humans is near and the things causing it to have started occurring.

 All the Best to Ourselves for An Assumed Bright Future……
