"When I is replaced by We, even Illness becomes Wellness." – Malcolm

Solidarity is a commonly used word but has today gained a real recognition, meaning, and signicance as the globe has endorsed ‘solidarity’ as the foremost and vital weapon in the battle to safeguard humanity. This has been brought to our conscience through a message given by Dr. Tedros Adhanom, the Director-General of WHO, who has made ‘solidarity’ a constant message of the global public health response to COVID-19 pandemic.

Solidarity is not only a word, but also a realization that we are all in this together; not a feeling of indenite compassion, but a rm and persevering determination to commit oneself to the common good, to strengthen the community and to promote a just society.

It is clear that strength lies in unity, and ‘Unity is Strength.’ Our unied objectives, sympathies, and actions tie us together as one with the strings of solidarity, while striking the chords of unity, cooperation, and unanimity.

The world is tussling with an issue of large scale and massive human impact, the pandemic of COVID-19. Antonio Guterres, the ninth Secretary-General of the United Nations also said, in an interview, “COVID-19 is above all a human crisis with severe health and socio-economic consequences.” This virus is unexpected in our lifetime and requires an unmatched response. Once the battle is over, there will be ample time to look back and completely understand how it emerged, evolved, and caused devastation in our entity. That time has not come yet. Now is the time when the globe is in the thick of health, and when the international community must unite in its common struggle with solidarity to combat this virus and its shattering consequences.

The WHO is working in solidarity with many countries to implement a comprehensive approach to educate, empower, and engage communities to slow down transmission.

It is securing lives and buying time for the development of vaccines and treatments. An international large-scale study is in place to generate reliable data to show which treatments are the most eective. The WHO has called it ‘Solidarity Trial.’

Although political borders have been closed, scientists are creating a global collaboration unlike any other in history. Several experts in so many nations are focusing simultaneously on a single topic with great urgency.

Another example is the lockdown followed by the respectable citizens like faithful teammates following the instructions of the government with loyalty. In turn, all doctors, healthcare workers, and civil workers have been fearless warriors working persistently round the clock for the good of the world.

The globe is worth ghting for to secure such an invaluable jewel: humankind.

We are in the midst of unpleasant circumstances of the most serious kind. We have before us long months of struggle. It is the necessity to move forward with the spirit of harmony to ght this terrible catalog of human suerings. ‘Let us stand in solidarity, not to a specic country, race, or religion but rather to humanity.’

“United we stand, divided we fall.”

The little poetess inside me want to sum up my thoughts with the following piece of poetry:

Alone we are droplets, together an ocean,

when we drink unity’s potion.

Alone we are bricks, together a building,

and so ourselves we are shielding.

Alone we are branches, together a tree,

grown with the seeds of solidarity.

Alone we are people, together a team,

with cooperation supreme.

Alone we are humans, together humanity

standing together with unity and unanimity
