This is an interesting,imaginary conversation between a mosquito and me.
Me: Technology is progressing for human being only. How are you too becoming so smart ? Technology should make us only clever, not you. But, I have seen that you are becoming over smart. Sometimes, though we use mosquito net, we can’t escape from you. You are seen inside the mosquito net also. When I was trying to kill you, I failed again and again. Sometimes, I failed to trace you inside the mosquito net. Then, suddenly I saw that you were sitting just above my head on the inside of the net.
Mosquito: Man has the power of both-creating and destroying. We have no power. We take birth, because you create the environment for us. We carry Dengue virus, because of the dirty environment created by you. If you all become united and make a clean environment, we can’t be able to grow up further and one-day we will become history.
Me: So, we help you to take birth. And you ? You take our lives so easily. You should be kind to us instead you take the lives of small kids too. How cruel are you !
Mosquito: We have not taken your lives. We want a little bit human blood only, we don’t want to kill you. It is not us, it is environment due to which we become virus effected. You don’t take care of environment. This is the reason, environment too doesn’t take care of you. For killing you, environment uses us, that’s all.
Me: So, one day technology will be so advanced that it will find a way how to kill all of you simultaneously.
Mosquito: – It is impossible. When technology will be advanced, output of it will be advanced but some byproduct must be there by which there will be a balance between development and destruction.
Me: So, what is the solution for removing Dengue virus?
Mosquito: What will happen on your hair if you never take shampoo?
Me: Lice will grow on my head.
Mosquito: To diminish the existence of lice, you often clean your head by using shampoo. So, what should you do to diminish our existence?
Me: We have to maintain cleanliness in our surrounding. We have to use closed drainage system. We should throw the garbages in the dustbin only. We should not spit here and there.
Mosquito: Don’t think, we feel happy after killing human beings. As much as people suffer due to mosquito related diseases, we also suffer same amount.
It is like : when a mother gives birth of a child who is suffering from the polio. In this case, who feels the pain? I feel that the child suffers more than that of his mother. Similarly, we suffer more than that of you.
Me: But how will I be sure that all people will maintain this?
Mosquito: You can’t ensure this. So, better you take care of your surroundings only. Spread a message for others. It is not only your duty. It is duty for all human beings.
Message : Please take care of your surroundings. If we all try together, we can create a beautiful, clean environment which will vanish the existence of dengue.
