Every coin has two faces and so does the impact of Covid-19…. On one hand it has turned out to be a nightmare to every other family who have lost their near and dear ones. The scenario was like all the social problems- poverty, unemployment, inflation, loss of jobs and psychological disorders have crippled human existence. I believe each of these problems are interlinked… Let me explain how!! A number of sectors have been affected as a result of the prolonged lockdown due to Covid-19. Companies have shut down and businesses have lost revenues leading to laying off their precious assets. The story does not end here. People losing their jobs desperately looked for new openings and due to lack of jobs they remained unemployed. Unemployed youths usually suffer from psychological disorders while isolating themselves for a long time. The misery of a family man losing his mode of earning can never be ignored and it gave rise to the biggest social problem that one can face- ‘POVERTY’!!!!! To my surprise, this lockdown tale continued for atleast seven to eight months when gradually people could accustom themselves… Soon after this first wave, came another destructive second wave which I believe no one had ever expected even in their wildest dreams. How can mother earth be so cruel? With death toll rising overtime, people were anxiously waiting for their turn to succumb to this deadly virus. This time it was not even the doctors who could do miracles and the spike headed demon ruled the world….
Let’s think the other way round… Did Covid-19 bring any change to lifestyle or the world as a whole? I would say YES!! It did change the stereotypical life of all individuals. People have started depending on themselves while staying in isolation. Some have even discovered their hidden passion which they failed to follow due to their busy schedule. Well!! The MNCs have finally realized that the employees can be productive even in their comfort zone…. & the world has been moving towards digital transformation… People have been working upon their technical skills to survive during the Covid phase. Last but not the least even the busiest souls had the opportunities to spend time with their family members which was a need of an hour. I sometimes wonder what would have happened if the virus had not played its role? Would the world had ever changed? Or we would have followed the stereotypical lifestyle that’s similar to human robots??
