While the Crisis too had divided the Indian society into the rich urban who somewhat enjoyed the lockdown and had made use of it by reading books, watching web series on Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. While the rural labour had spent the days mourning the work gap and thinking about what next? How to feed and what to feed! The main problem arose was the migration as there were no more jobs left, and as no jobs no wage, no wage caused no food, and no food brought them to leave their Urban centers and made them go towards their homes, away from the cities from where they were born and grown, while many had a piece of land enough to sustain them for food, but the cause of earning money rather than just filling their stomach brought them to cities.
Post-catastrophic conditions brought many changes into the various societies, an example of Britain Society after the war. Though the War had made Britain somewhat a modern entity, the current condition is of another nature. The Huge loss of lives around 3,435 as of 21st May has made a big change, the death just not affect the deceased but it affects their families and loves ones. Imagine the emotional trauma on families, friends, colleagues of 3,435 which will affect their whole future lives.
The origin of the virus has made many conspiracy theories like the CIA and Communist China’s influence of it, although while some backs the origin nation due to their ideological connection and their “so called racism” theory in stating the calling of Wuhan Virus as racism. While some left activists had been notorious all around the globe in protecting the racist nature of calling the virus by their home name, in spite of the deaths and problems that occurred by them.
The main problem in India, now and after will be the lower-middle class and the middle class; mainly the daily wagers who had the nature of earning by the day and eating by the day. “The lockdown in India has impacted the livelihoods of a large proportion of the country’s nearly 40 million internal migrants. Around 50,000–60,000 moved from urban centers to rural areas of origin in the span of a few days,” World Bank said in a report. Although it may somewhat lead to employment opportunities in some highly-populated areas, it may lead to unemployment in other areas, also an employment gap of skilled labours who moved towards their homes and the cities which needed them most, now lacks it. The gap may lead to demand-supply crises and thus may lead to high-prices and more poverty.
Notwithstanding these situations, the labourers in fear of the future lack of resources moved to their homes, they may have other opportunities in the fields of rural occupations. Farming, fishing, and other occupations which they left to their previous generations, the crisis may get them towards these occupations. While the land-less ones have again to move towards the urban centers again in need of Employments. There can be an increase in rates of suicides post-lockdown. While the urban millenials learned by the new technology of online-learning and some have found their future interests, there has been an increase in the psychological stress and conditions during the lockdown.
The Indian, as well as the whole global society will never be the same as it used to be. The examples of the partition movement as well as the pre-post environments during the world wars have shown that the situations will never be the same. From labourers to the upper-class millenials, all have been affected due to the crisis, physically and emotionally. The cities will be having the hustle-bustle, but it will never be the same, while some will return, but what about those who cryingly left saying I’ll never return to these cities, the colleagues will miss the company of those who were affected by the virus and now are dead, the wives will remember the taunts of their husbands towards their in-laws, (a somewhat culture in Indian society), the children will remember their parents and the parents will remember their children, all had someone to remember and thus we will leave towards a new India while grieving towards the one who left us.
