World Gratitude Day: Blessings to our real heroes during the pandemic

Expressing gratitude to our real heroes who have been constantly risking their lives during the pandemic.


World Gratitude Day, celebrated on 21st September, brings the entire globe together in a day of thankfulness.

It is the perfect opportunity to remind us to step back and think about what we are thankful for. Gratitude is something that inspires and fills the mind with meaning. When we are thankful for something, we tend to love our life and stick around long enough to enjoy it.

During this coronavirus pandemic where people are stressing over the death toll and the miseries, let’s take a moment to spread some positivity and thank our heroes who, despite of all the risks associated with it, have blessed us in every way possible thus keeping us free of the disease. Here we count our blessings:-

1) Health Workers


From the very start, they have been constantly working to treat the infected, not only saving our lives but putting their own at risk as well.
Moreover, many doctors, nurses and staff in India are underpaid but they still stick to their duty which signifies their determination and dedication to fight the pandemic.

2) Teachers

The education sector is one of the worst affected throughout the pandemic. Teachers haven’t left any stone unturned in imparting quality education through online classes. It is a very huge success that they have adopted the new methods in spite of all the harassment and trolling by the students. They have the courage to step forward as new technological teachers.

3) Pharmacists


It is pretty evident that, an infected person, after taking prescription from a doctor, heads towards a chemist shop to buy the medicine. Remember when the lockdown first started, and everyone rushed towards the medical stores to buy the sanitizers and soaps and other medical aid? They have been a boon to us and deserve our gratitude for working amid all the fear.

4) Police Officers

During the lockdown, they have been constantly working day and night to ensure that the citizens don’t crowd themselves at any point in order to forbid the transmission. They were even criticised by some unaware people but they still continue to do their duty which is amazing.
