Lockdown experience has taught us that life can go on in other ways.
From the Neolithic Revolution nearly ten thousand years ago to the agricultural and industrial civilizations, the future of mankind has always been unpredictable. Covid-19 has introduced a new normal, life goes on in a way we never imagined. Corona has made work from home a part of her life. Remote virtual meetings are now commonplace.
For the first time in more than 700 years in the UK, MPs have not sat in the House of Commons for the first time in more than 700 years. The epidemic has taught us that anything that is constant in life can change. Until yesterday we used to walk around freely but today when someone comes to the door we are scared.
The epidemic has increased both risk and opportunity. Hard times inspire us to learn new things. Corona and Lockdown did the same. While new experiences help us survive, these experiences also give us the strength to move forward in life. There is a huge difference between life before and after COVID-19.
While Corona has changed the way of life, it is also strengthening the old relationship. Corona gave them the opportunity to share meals with their families, as well as time for home-schooling and caring for children and the elderly. The lockdown has also revealed the personality of women, women are managing the family with double effort. While working from home, women have not only maintained balance with their families, but have also struggled with mental problems due to being confined at home.
The epidemic has taught us a lot and explained the meaning and interpretation of the word digital, today online banking, online transactions, online education and online jobs have become a part of our lives. Corona has taught us to work with new technology, to spend more time at home, to work from home, to adopt new methods of sports and recreation, to strengthen relationships with relatives and friends. Corona also gave us a chance to think about the culture of collecting expensive products and spending money.
The COVID-19 epidemic is a difficult time, but it can also be a time of unprecedented creativity. Virtual interaction is driving innovation. Home from work has completely changed office hours from 9am to 5pm and has greatly reduced the distance between home and office. The epidemic has forced life to reset, because the Srimad Bhagavad Gita says that nothing on earth is permanent. This epidemic has changed all our plans and made us feel uncertain about our careers.
Remember that careers and jobs are always changeable, some jobs become obsolete and some emerge to meet the needs of the time. According to a survey, 35 percent of all lost jobs will not return. However, the survey itself shows that redistribution of jobs and new demand will reduce losses. Employees are being divided into cross-industries. It is an innovative response that takes people involved in hotels, airlines and tourism to organizations that have a lot of jobs, such as health, logistics, retail stores and online stores. It is very helpful in developing new skills and networks. In today’s economic climate automation is not a job killer, it is becoming an essential ability to deal with crises. The rise of 5G networks and connected machines is creating virtual ‘on-the-workstations’.
We can get many options about the future; All we need is to invest time and effort. The new normal will bring new opportunities. A new market that was previously untouchable is now taking over. There is no fall everywhere. While there are many companies and startups that are doing well and young people can gain good experience working here, many employers are now looking for graduates with different skills so that they can work effectively at home.
The country could become an alternative manufacturing hub. Today, India can provide adequate land, trained manpower and sufficient market for production to foreign investors and companies. Our country has the largest population under the age of 35 and a large number of science and engineering graduates. Overall, cheap labor, a huge talent pool and availability of skilled manpower make India very attractive compared to other countries.
It’s time for an innovative business model. There is no better time to start a business than a recession; Young people can complete better supply chain management in the Corona era through low cost, good talent and labor. If we go back in time, we can see that in the challenges of the 2008 global economic downturn, many start-up companies started, including WhatsApp (2009), Uber (2009) and Instagram (2010), which are conquering the world today. . In fact, challenges and opportunities are like a double-edged sword. The home kitchen also offers many food options, life is like that, just need to make a decision.
This is a time of multi-skills, so focus on skills, re-skills and future skills. Employees of garment companies like M&S, New Balance, etc. are now making surgical masks and gowns, while Ford, General Motors and some other prominent motor companies have reduced production at their automotive plants due to reduced consumer demand, production of ventilators and other medicines.

Corona gives us a chance to think about ourselves and our loved ones. Lockdown experience has taught us that life can go on in other ways. Society can develop by saving nature without exploiting it. Roads can also breathe.
We know that tomorrow will come and that tomorrow will give us many opportunities in life. The winners will be the ones who analyze what, why, how, who will do their job and the losers will be the ones who will wait for everything to come back as before. Life is still a beautiful journey and we should all hope that tomorrow will be better.
