Let us see now the lockdown has been extended once again, this time for another two weeks the third extension. The government is trying to come up with guidelines to reopen the cities, dividing them into red, green, and orange zones. But major cities like Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore have red zones all over all of the Mumbai districts come under the red zone. So how can the lockdown be lifted here they have the airports the metros and the buses. The whole thing about the virus is that it is restricting the movement of people and Human interaction, including personal touch and greetings. It is stoping us to congregate in one place as the virus can be spread at a distance also.
This means work from home stay more indoors and confined to your narrow communities. The virus is changing the symbols of modern and urban success and asking us to re-assess our values of good, success, prosperity, and development. It is going to change the way we intact with each other and aseptically how business and commerce are run and governed. Impacting global supply chains, it will force communities to grow, make, and consume on their own restricting trade amongst countries.
People will have to learn to live with little and essentials this will lead to a more frugal life and an aesthetic way of living where every household works from home and with minimum commuting. We will rely on technology more heavily and I envisage an AI lead world, where we will interact with each other virtually through chat apps.
There will be a more sense of community, charity amongst people as the peel will have more time for their family and loved ones. Office stress that generally persists will disappear as workers will bee more relaxed, the only upshot will be that domestic violence will increase as family stay clustered and shut in their homes.
As long as the government is able to feed people things will work, so farming has to be allowed to go on and so the availability of essential services.
The environment will be coal and we will be living in a pollution-free world with freshwater and clean air. Kids will be educated online in homes with people becoming more close to nature thus more close to themselves and to existence. The per games of the politicians and rich businessmen will diminish as they will be the ones hardest hit. We would have to learn to operate in a restricted mobility economic scenario.
For me, it would be like living in a pre liberalization scenario, where people may be riding bikes rather than traveling in buses and trains or crowded taxies and autos.
