“Interdependence is and ought to be as much the ideal of man as self-sufficiency. Man is a social being. Without interrelation with society he cannot realize his oneness with the universe or suppress his egotism. His social interdependence enables him to test his faith and to prove himself on the touchstone of reality.”
As Gandhiji said without interrelationship with society one cannot live. The era of covid 19 taught us some new insights to mankind. It enables humans to stay at home for the wellbeing of themselves and society. One can never think about staying at home without doing something and enjoying and feasting with family.
Staying at home made humans started to enjoy loving themselves and their families. The very thought of loving their job and making money was changed. Now they started living for mankind; for the country and society. Humankind got a rare opportunity to serve society through staying at home. The idea of self-sufficiency through each and every village was lost due to the globalisation. Men started thinking about staying self-sufficient in their own houses. They started agriculture for their own and also for the neighborhood. The relationship between neighborhoods was improved due to the transaction of goods in their own compound.The era of covid 19 changed an era for vegetable gardens in India especially in Kerala.
Housewives became more active and supportive to husband’s household activities which were unknown to them earlier. Working with husband’s in the kitchen was the ever becoming dream of housewives in India. New experiments in food items were started, which will prove tastier and healthier than the hotel food. The innate food items of Kerala like jackfruit, banana, cashew nut, mango etc will get high demand in snack time.
Enjoyments with family members through various games, movies, jokes, etc made the children more energetic than ever. The traditional games which parents grandparents play have come back to the scene. Humankind began to enjoy every moment of life without the tensions in life. This removed most of the negativeness from the minds of people. Positivity began to empower people. Most of the challenges like addictions, maniyas, etc weakened.
Industrial workers started enjoying the job by working from home. The job and family became two sides of one coin. Working from home is a longer need of human beings after the technological upgrade in the country. This will be an added advantage to the enjoyments in families. This will widen the career opportunities in international business relationships. It paved the way for more research, discoveries and innovations in the field of technology, especially software development.
Students started to learn online classes and model exams from home which was a long desire of their mind. Professional students started enjoying studying at home. The government is looking forward to implementing this new idea for the next academic year. This will be profitable for the wastage of time and money in the academic fields. Students are able to get time for study and part time practical work or doing jobs.
Children in every country were self-sufficient in doing and developing their own specific skills. No-one is compelling them for studies now. Lockdown is the time for developing innate capacities and skills in students. The social network is giving much popularity for their creativity. This will be helpful for the development of art and culture of our country which will be degraded by the British East India company.
Though the religious institutions were under lockdown, the beliefs of people in religion was increased. People began to think that the covid 19 virus was a curse from God and their evil practices will be changed. The religious practices through media and prayer times in home had increased due to the lockdown. Though most of the beliefs were superstitious, it will be useful for the humankind and upliftment of the moral status of the country.
Various governments in the country had got an opportunity to work for their citizens. Every time the government works for the next chance and for the development of their own party and officials. But covid gave time to introduce strict measures in every field of the country. Ways for implementing new innovations in technologies and policies were started.
The most important enjoyment of the youth is that of the use of social media through mobile phones. People using social media especially group admins were aware of the wrong trolls and sharing wrong messages. So the quantity of wrong messages decreased. People became selective on finding friends and chatting with the are not friends. Many of them found new apps which will help to improve their creativity and sharing it with friends. This will help to improve the confidence of people especially youth and the children.
Though covid 19 brought stress and strain among the lives of the people and many countries have severe death rates, there happened some good things too. The health workers and police got memorable appreciation from the people and the government. The guest workers from other states also get much safety from the government. The NRI’s from different countries were also given help for coming back to India.
Those people who know to enjoy every moment of life have known to enjoy life in the midst of all problems. Enjoyment is involved in our attitude. Finding positives in every sphere of life is the only way for enjoyment and happiness. So let’s make the dreams of our father of nation, Bapuji, fulfilled with joyful families, friends and relatives.
