Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.

I’m about to head off to my second medical appointment for the week. Not to worry, just routine stuff. Anyone who has had much interaction with the Australian medical system will appreciate how much the quality of that system depends on the health professionals from India who have made Australia their home. In the blogosphere, many of my readers are also from India or have extended family in India. One of my blogger friends from Delhi has told me that whatever we may be seeing about the Covid disaster there is only the tip of the iceberg. I am anxiously waiting an update.

I’m dedicating my song choice to all the people who have lost loved ones to Covid. The song, Edna’s Song, is written and sung by Ange Takats.

For Su’s Friday Flowers and song, see here.

Kind Regards.

  1. The song is beautiful Tracy.
    T tells me that one of his Indian colleagues has said much the same thing. He and his wife (who are in North America) are fund-raising, and rallying other expats to provide whatever help they can.

  2. Such a beautiful and haunting song, Tracy.

    Great choice for the current times.

    We can only guess at the disaster that is unfolding in India (and other poorer nations). When the news reports 400,000 daily cases as the second wave continues and nearly 1/4 M deaths overall, we are surely only getting half the story. The tragedy of this virus and now, its mutant virus strain(s) can only be estimated in a country with such a massive population, many living in crowded extended family single rooms and close proximity to each other.

    I’m eternally thankful that I live in Australia with our rather sparse population spread across our vast continent and the strong stand our Premiers have taken with the smallest outbreak.

    Every time I catch a taxi with an Indian driver (as there are many in my multicultural suburb), I immediately ask or think about their families back home in India.
