Dharma and Dilemma in times of Covid 19

Hope all of you had a great day here in India

In these testing times of Covid 19 across the world and especially in India wherein UnLock 1 has started few days back the question that crosses my mind most of the times is : What is my Dharma and what am i supposed to do in these testing times???

I am a Hindu and as per Hinduism i understand Dharma to be your duties and right way of Living. Now here the Question and Dilemma arises in the present horrendous times : What is my Dharma especially if i am working in an essential services sector???

I have duties: professionally, as a son, as a husband and as a Father. In the current situation if the professional duty takes precedence then other duties will take a back seat and are compromised especially concerning the Safety, i m not especially sure but i think the answer lies within our Sacred Book Bhagvad Gita, Lord Krishna in the Battle of Kurukshetara tells Arjuna that it is your Kshatriya Dharma to fight against the Kauravas, even though they are your relatives, gurus and all but still you should fight against them because this is your Kshatriya Dharma . In Short i may be right or wrong but what i can infer that your Professional Duty takes precedence over all your other Duties.

Do give your suggestions

I believe in the Power of almighty and believe ultimately everything in this world happens for a purpose, believe False Ego is the primary reason for all the problems in this world
