Keywords:COVID-19, Pandemic, Dystopia, Mental Health, Education, Economy, Social
AbstractCOVID-19 is a stark reminder that humans have so little autonomy. One would arrogantly think that this is to the very least applicable to our bodies. But the matter of fact here is that, a pandemic like these forces us to reimagine a constructed belief system. In fact, every once in a while, or as we say in the turn of a century, we are meant to shift our perceptions of what happens around us. This re-imagination is multidimensional, and in case of COVID-19, it affected the way we travel, work, study, or live our basic life. The new normal was a reconstruction of realities that were taken for granted. Take for instance, wearing a mask and using sanitizer have become very “normal”. For the people who experienced the lockdown, it is also a re-imagination of lifestyles. The impact of COVID-19 has been all encompassing and it has startled all sectors, and when the world settled down, we were a slightly changed species. A generation that witnessed a lockdown, a generation that lived through the boons and banes of global connectivity.
