The Chief Justice of Madras High Court A P Sahi on Wednesday said that we cannot afford any complacency in the battle against COVID-19.
In a message penned to legal fraternity, the CJ said "By our visible movements we may be unknowingly contributing towards the strength of our opponent Corona. Shelter, protection and deceptive measures to outclass our enemy is the crying need to ensure survival and prevent any catastrophe… Our resolve has erected a strong defence but still we cannot afford any complacency"
In the letter titled "Journey has begun", he said "Corona has surrounded us stealthily and we are caught amidst the escalating global devastation with many of the developed countries bearing the brunt much because of their underestimation, complacency and even lack of resource"
He added "a little loose fitting in the assembly line can dissolve the best efforts. A constant vigil and a repetitive observance will definitely help us to sail through this unruly weather… The pain and the pleasure of abstinence is entirely for our benefit. The situation, unhappily, does not furnish many choices."
"We are heading towards the threshold of our efforts. Let us not loose direction… The present is of trial and may be with some possible error but with one effort we can convert it into trial and perfect success. Imagine, you will win life itself. There cannot be a bigger conquest than conquering yourself."
