Awaiting fresh start?

November 23, 2020 00:00:00

Perhaps the world has been stuck up with the old systems and practices. It was not possible for us to bring changes so easily. Our habits, daily necessities, and a common culture of all around us made us not only obedient to the systems but also slaves to some extent. So, let's not just blame coronavirus for posing so much of a challenge.

We should also think and admit that this curse, if we call it so, might be the outcome of our acts. This pandemic has shattered almost everything but also offered us an opportunity to build new culture. We forget we are interdependent. We might have been complacent about innovations and prosperity. After this challenging period, we would just need to make a fresh start for rebuilding life and society.
