Tomaar Kautha keho toh bolena: Lyrics by Tagore, Translation by Ranu
No one talks about you here
They only make useless noise
They are busy drinking deadly poison
In the sea of nectar
They have lost their self worth
They cannot swim
They have lost their sense of direction
They drift away with the waves unsteadily
And eventually drown in the sea
Where will I go,who will I ask
They have taken me by force
I knew they will leave me by myself
On the shoreless ocean
I look around me with tearful eyes
I am unable to carry my weight
My weak heart is trembling!!
Viral comes from the word virus. We have heard the word virus long time ago . We know virus is a Latin word for poison.This is the name of a large class of protein substances they are only visible by the electron microscope. They are lifeless until they come into contact with the right cells of a living organism. It triggers into a reproductive activity. This produces the frequently epidemic diseases such as the common cold,influenza,small pox etc.

The deadliest disease is small pox, it can wipe out a community. Vaccines are invented to combat the disease. The World health Organization declared in 1979 that the disease is eradicated. The threat since then is from existing samples of the virus at two research locations, One in the U.S and the other in Russia.
