Hyderabad: People in urban areas of Telangana, particularly those in Hyderabad, would do well to learn a lesson from the humble villagers across the State who seem far more receptive to the enforcement of self-isolation and remaining indoors to combat coronavirus.
While people in the State capital and other towns and cities chose to ignore the lockdown guidelines issued by the government, residents of scores of villages in Nalgonda, Warangal, Nizamabad, Mahabubabad, Mahabubnagar, Adilabad, Khammam among others set up barricades using boulders, tree branches and thorny bushes to keep away outsiders from entering their villages. Some also placed boards at the entry of their villages advising non-residents to stay away as a way to check spread of the deadly coronavirus.
What is heart-warming is that these villagers, the so-called illiterates, have far higher awareness levels compared to the urbanites when it comes to taking on the coronavirus threat. Gangareddy, a resident of Yerugatla in Nizamabad district perhaps had the best message for the people from the cities and towns when he said: “The government is doing everything to fight coronavirus, and we decided to play our part by cooperating with the administration. We decided to follow all the guidelines issued by the government, be it on the issue of lockdown or precautionary measures. We also decided to cooperate with the health officials when they seek information from us.” What is ironic and even comical is that in Kaghaznagar town, it took three sloth bears to make their presence felt to send people rushing indoors!
