When Global besomes local…India records first death due to Swine flu.

Today in a tragic incident a school going girl passed away due to the worldwide pandemic of Swine flu. Well, this seems to be the beginning here as the virus hasn’t got a grip due to the varied and ever changing weather of Indian subcontinent.

Just 5-6 months before I had read about the deadly ebola Virus – in a novel called – The Hot Zone. The way these diseases spread can be research work for months and the way these develop to haunt the humans can grow into an altogether new stream.

The last time we heard of a similar instance was during childhood days, when SARS was being reported in the same way. Hope that medical science takes a step ahead to cure this deadly disease.

It also brings us to a thought that the humans, how strong they may be; are very minute beings… and a hell lot – small virus can also be sufficient for swiping out the entire race?
