CoVID-19 crisis has brought the entire world to a standstill. At the pace at which technological development was taking place globally, we felt that the control of everything in this world is in our hands and we can change whatever we wished to change. However, this pandemic has brought us to a conclusion that we all are mere players in the hands of nature which we had been taking for granted for several decades together. This lockdown gave us time to rethink about the effects of our actions to the environment. It taught us that we have to have empathy in us, we can’t just take from nature; we have to give too. and so is reflected in the videos of #nittygrittywithneetikaushik

So, here a question arises whether CoVID-19 turned out to be a blessing in disguise for the nature?

We were a wounded lot

Wounded by our greed and pride

Privately, in many a voice

She told us she was wounded too

Wounds of love

Wounds of hate

But the wounds of earth do not fill

With sugar or cake

Will time peel this old scum?

And fill the wounds?

Shall we look at old skins, and say?

Where was that gash

Where that gaping wound.

There was a time I used to say, old problems always give new solutions but now will the new problems be solved with old solutions?

“Change is the law of the universe. What you think of as death, indeed life. In one instance you can be a millionaire, and in the other instance, you can be steeped in poverty. Yours and mine, big and small-erase these ideas from your mind. Then everything is your and you belong to everyone”. – By Lord Krishna.

Change is unavoidable. All prediction are not in our hands now. Nobody could have anticipated this disaster which is in front of us. COVID-19 has risen as something new and phenomenal. One thing is sure, nothing will ever be the same again.

1. As we all know that the women still weren’t allowed to work because of their responsibilities at home but now the women can fulfil their dreams by being virtually present at work and physically present at home. Thanks to covid-19.

1. Online learning isn’t an absolute success. There are many challenges that the students are facing during the online schooling. There are less connectivity in remote areas. The poor kids, who were going to government schools have no proper access to online learning from home. There are also slow internet connections in non- urban areas which is causing difficulties for the students living there. There has also been a problem for the children who are mostly indulged in sports and other extracurricular activities because of being isolated at home and not getting any opportunity to play or show their respective talent.

2. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Due to the forced restrictions, pollution level in cities across the country drastically slowed down just within few days which magnetize discussions regarding lockdown to be the effectual alternative measures to be implemented for controlling air pollution.

3. The nationwide lockdowns have brought social and economic life to a standstill. The economic stress has started and will grow rapidly. A lot of people also lost their jobs during these crisis. As observed, there is also decline in demands for goods and services by the consumers. The economic loss has been a major problem in the world for all the people.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, not only doctors, nurses, and ward boys but our delivery persons, shop owners, and vegetable-fruits vendors, etc., have played a crucial role by providing us timely access to all the necessary items important for survival during all the months of the pandemic. In the end, though the times have been difficult, your dedication towards your work did not shake a bit. I highly appreciate your work. Thank you!

As a conclusions, “what seems to as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise”, and with all the positivity we are in this together and we will get through this together.
