Life in the times of COVID19…
Recently I came across a term viz. VUCA world during one of the educational workshops that I attended at the university where I work. Little did I know that we will be a part of the VUCA world so soon. VUCA stands for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity, a combination of qualities that, taken together, characterize the nature of some difficult conditions and situations.
Due to the outbreak of COVID19 pandemic all across the planet,we are in deep mess! There is volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity all around us.The entire country is in a volatile state of affairs,there is uncertainty as to when the effects of the corona virus will subside.When we will be able to resume our work,when will our economy start improving.Too many questions,phew!
No one seems to have any clue as to what is happening and with conspiracy theories being circulated daily,it becomes really difficult to keep a sane mind.
Although we are all locked down in our homes as per the directive of our honorable prime minister Shri Narendra Modi,but none of us are used to such a life.Some news reports suggest that the lockdown in India should continue till September 2020 to mitigate the effects of COVID19.
Honestly if that happens then whether we die of COVID19 or not , we might become a nation of depressed people all around.
Gone are the days when relaxation meant a couple of hours lazy sleep during a Sunday afternoon after having “Mangsho Bhat”. It seems that all the days are Sundays now and honestly I am having a tough time remembering dates and days of the week as I write this blog,coincidentally my first blog!
God knows what’s in store for us!
