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?
Corona following the path of ‘Thanos’
‘You have my respect Stark’, when I am done, half the humanity will still be alive’. I guess most of us remember this famous dialogue from the great villain of Marvels Studios till date. Yes, I am talking about ‘Thanos’. He says this statement while interacting to Tony Stark; ‘The Iron Man’. His only dream was to maintain balance on Earth by clearing half of the humanity from Earth. Though that was his madness only as the way he selected cannot be justified in any sense. How can anyone think of maintaining balance by taking half of the innocent lives. But the spread of the present Pandemic Corona Virus and the ignorance of the common public across the world toward this pandemic will justify the dream of Thanos in near future. It looks like the Pandemic is on the way of Thanos to clear the lives from Earth. Till now the pandemic has taken more than 2.5 million people under its grip around the globe taking More than 2 lakh lives. No one knows its main origin though everyone knows just that it came out from China (either from the Wuhan Centre of Virology or the fish market as the scholars are predicting) and started playing with the lives of people just like the puppeteer, who plays and manipulates the puppet as per his will.
I remember another dialogue from the movie ‘Avengers-End Game’ the next part of the ‘Avengers Infinity War’. The most famous one “I am inevitable”. Though Thanos got killed at last in the movie and the super heroes saved the world from being cleared out. But in this real life this virus is still inevitable and the whole world is waiting for such super heroes to appear anywhere and save the world. We all are locked under homes and feeling just like the animals in the zoo cage feel. No one knows when this dreadful scenario will be over and once again the whole world will take breathe in the open air again. More than 70 countries are competing with each other in order to get the vaccine of this virus but the result seems very far from their reach. The Medical personnel, the police team, the defence services and the workers working in such condition and serving the people while risking their lives are our super heroes in real sense. Some have lost their lives while fighting this small but monster virus, but still their energy didn’t get lower and they are still fighting with all their guts.
It’s also a great opportunity for all the country men to be super heroes by being safe and keeping others’ lives safe. According to a journal published in ‘The Business Insider’ “A single person, not living in quarantine and following the proper social distancing can infect more than 50 people around him and this could end up to infecting 59,000 people in a snowball effect”. One can easily imagine the worst scene by this data. The whole world has now come to a stop and no one knows when everything will be fine again. The major sectors of every country have affected so badly that many start-ups have got ended before being started and many established companies have reached on the verge of bankruptcy and shut down. New joiners are losing their jobs due to all this mess. Tourism sector has got affected the most due to this as the whole sector is dependent upon the people and nature. Due to this the economic conditions of every country have been affected very badly. The developing countries like India and others have got affected the most as tourism plays an important role in the economy growth of every country. The most developed and successful countries like USA and Italy having the most advanced medical facilities have put their weapon down against this pandemic Corona virus. According to an article published in, The Washington Post’ dated April 16, 2020 by Heather Long, about 22 million of people have declared themselves unemployed due to the emergency and lock down. Last week the American President, Donald Trump along with his best medical team confessed that the situation is so worse in USA that if the virus gets stopped spreading and the death toll gets topped after about taking 2 lakh lives, they will think that their medical team has done quite well. Now we can imagine the dreadful situation of the developed country like USA from the above said statement and must think the worst as well as the fearful situation in the country if it gets community spread across the nation as the virus has already spread its legs across the nation and expanding very fast.
So, it’s the real time for all the country men to show their real patriotism, love and care towards our nation and the support to our government and all the warriors who are fighting for us to overcome this virus while risking their own life to threat in real sense. It’s an urge to everyone just follow the instructions and information properly. Just stay at home; stay safe and healthy and keep others safe and join hands together to get a must want win over the monster Corona virus. Then only we can say with proud “Muskuraega India, Jeet jaega India”.
