Journey of new life after covid-19?
“This is the fight of our lives. We are going to win. Whatever it takes”
One of the most memorable and beautiful line said by ‘Steve Rogers’ alias the famous “captain America” in the movie End-Game, when the avengers were risking their lives to get the infinity stones to end up the dark legacy of Thanos. So, Here I am again with my thoughts in the same series. This time I have come up with some questions which you can easily get from the Title itself. So, what do you think about the situation after this real End-Game? Will our super heroes be successful completely in ending the dark legacy of this real ‘Thanos in the form of Covid-19’? And if even we get the success in the near future, what would be the outcome in the near future. How are we going to start the journey of our new life after this pandemic gets over? Whether people will learn the lesson from this ongoing situation in life and learn the real art of living? And the major one How the world is going to recover itself from the world-wide economic crisis and challenges in front of our government of this economic crisis. Whether there will be a change their life styles after all this come to an end or they will continue their past? These are the questions which I guess will be in the mind of most of the people who are thinking about future. Though this pandemic has put us in a great trouble but if we have a look on the other side of the aspect, we will see that due to this situation when everything has stopped, the nature is healing itself very fast. According to a report of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), the earth is shining very bright and the Ozone layer has healed its hole over Arctic region completely. If we talk about India, the Air Quality Index abbreviated as AQI has decreased down sharply and for the very first time after long years people can breathe in clean and pure air. We have also got the news became viral on 5th April, 2020 of the famous ‘Dhauladhar mountain range’ of ‘The Great Himalayas’ are visible from Jalandhar district of Punjab after 30 years. You will be surprised to know that the distance between the two are approx. 214 Kms. So, one can easily calculate the purity and cleanliness of the air in our surrounding from this data. Last day or earlier that, I guess you all have read the news that the holy river Ganga at Haridwar is now being considered as pure and fit for drinking and Narmada water at Jabalpur, MP has been declared as pure as mineral water. So, by all these we can think easily how our nature is doing great. But the major question arises that “will this all be continue after this pandemic as well as this lock down will be over in near future” will all of us think of living our lives along with maintaining the natural beauty as well as keeping the point of conservation of the nature and its habitat? It will also be a great challenge of the government as well as the environmentalists all around the globe to take effective and must implemented steps and rules to conserve the nature and its beauty. So, it is also an important question for them that how would they do all these?
Another major problem which the whole world has to face after all this is the great economic crisis. According to an article published in ‘The BBC News dated April 9 2020, Kristalina Georgieva the Managing Director of International Monetary Fund (IMF) said that “the world faced the worst crisis since the great depression of 1930s” till date and this pandemic will turn global economic growth, “sharply negative this year”. She also forcasted that in 2021 the world will see only a partial recovery. According to her it was expected in January that approx.160 member countries of IMF will have their positive growth per capita income, but now the number has been turned on its head completely. Now 170 countries have been predicted to experience negative per capita income growth this year. So, one can easily understand the worst effect of the virus on the world economy. If we talk about India that if the lockdown extends further approx. 1.3 billion people likely to result in economic recession and millions of the daily wage workers will suffer the threat of starvation. Though the former RBI governor Shri Raghuram ji Rajan has wrote “It is said India reforms only in crisis like as it has done earlier”. But still it will be a great challenge as well as headache for the government to save jobs and bring back the country from the threat of economic recession after all this gets over.
Because after all this, “A Part of the journey will End” and after that the path of the new journey will be in our hand that how we start it? I end up here only again with the same question mark so that you can think on your own what will be the scenario all around the world after the end of this real ‘End-Game’ and how are we going to start our new life and new world again?
