The Show Must Go On

It’s already been a very very long time since Lockdown was announced due to COVID-19 Pandemic. Nobody would have even expected a situation like this to happen anytime before. I hope God gives us all enough health and strength to successfully get out of the Pandemic and return to old normal soon. I have discontinued writing for almost a month, but its always good to be back. Yesterday, when I logged into WordPress to write a poem – I realized that all my thinking have been influenced a lot by the ongoing tough situations in our planet. It seemed like the year 2020 has just now started, but we have already completed 10 months of the year. “What did I do this year?” is one of the most prevalent question that I had heard throughout this year from many of my friends. In fact, I guess this question has been put forth by my mind to me multiple times. However, sometimes we cannot calm our minds. The best choice is to take good care of ourselves and our mind whenever possible.

This year has taught us a lot of things. Initially, we were happy and excited while sending New Year wishes to people. Then came the Lockdown. Ever since Lockdown was announced, things have changed a lot for many of us. For me, I have never even thought of working from home before. There never came a situation when I had to opt for ‘Work From Home’ before. I was excited thinking of the ‘Work From Home’ concept. However, there are multiple turn of events during the execution of it. Even then, I am pretty glad & forever thankful to God that I could continue my work during these unexpected situations.

Quite a lot of events have taken place in our World. Cricket and Soccer matches are happening with no spectators. Movies are being released on OTT platforms. Work is performed from home. Virtual meetings and virtual award shows have become normal now. Online Teaching and Online Learning are being practiced in schools. There is no end to this list. There is a common saying which goes like this: “Whatever happens, the show must go on”. I hope everyone have heard this saying multiple times in our lifetime. Hence, be full of hope and pass on beautiful positive vibes wherever you are.

How people are trying to adopt new technology trends during the Lockdown?

With the Lockdown in progress, technology trends have increased in a rapid phase day by day. Be it work or school, each and every sector has been trying their best to stay connected and keep the progress on.

Almost all the IT companies in the world have adopted the Work From Home (WFH) strategy to continue their business. Though the WFH practice has mixed reviews, it has become the new trend for IT workers worldwide. When the lockdown was announced initially, all the companies started their Business Continuity Procedures on a fastrack basis. Slow and steadily now, people have got used to this new trend. Obviously, this is the only way to continue business during the lockdown. Business related calls and online meetings have been reported to occupy much of the time for employees on a daily basis which is affecting the productivity and work-life balance. Certain technical glitches with respect to slow network speed, dis-connectivity of servers, etc have also proved to be a hindrance to work these days. However, the workforce have been continuously braving these problems and continue to deliver awesome service to clients across the globe.

Learning is said to be a continuous process. Nowadays, learning has become completely online. Apps such as Google Classroom and Zoom have provided the educators with tremendous opportunities to reach students on a daily basis and continue education. Teachers are being trained to deliver lessons to students online. People have also shown tremendous interests in gaining online certification and enhancing their skills for a better future by registering themselves to apps like Udemy, Coursera, etc. Hope more and more online forums get developed for learners to continue learning without any hindrance in the days to come.

Technology trends keep evolving day by day. Let us learn to adopt with the new technology trends for the ultimate benefit of everyone and bravely pass through these hard times.
