Lockdown and young generation

by Arpit

As the coronavirus is spreading at an influential speed, our habits are changing as well. Our society is severely affected due to the virus. Many people lost their jobs. Directly or indirectly, it made our economy to collapse. The entire world is battling strenuously against the disease. Yet we cannot predict the end of coronavirus. The question is whether it can change our lifestyle or change the way we live today. And if yes then to what extent. (You can comment and share your views).

“Young people don't always do what they're told, but if they can pull it off and do something wonderful, sometimes they escape punishment. ”

― Rick Riordan

The young generation is also severely affected due to the virus. Schools and colleges are locked. But I want to ask one question? Does our future depend entirely on schools and colleges? The problem is, we do not set up goals to achieve our dream. Even most of us don't have any purpose. In the era where we can get any information any time, we are still dependent on these institutions. Isn't it awkward? Most of the students aspire marks instead of knowledge.

From the past few weeks, most of the institutions are emphasising online education in terms of video lectures, providing notes, etc. Live classes are becoming more trendy. Yet, the major drawback of the live session is time clash. All the students are not free at the same time. The solution to this problem is to upload a video and students can watch anytime according to their schedule. College going students are mature enough to think about their career. Forcing a student to do a particular thing is not the option.

“Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere. ”

― Barack Obama

If you are persistent in your daily life, then there is no such situation which can stop you from achieving your dream. Even in the contrary phase, one can keep on learning. It is the primary factor which can take you beyond your imagination. Schools and colleges are good sources of learning but we cannot totally rely on them. There are also other sources which we tend to neglect. We use social media only for entertainment purpose yet people are building their empire using the power of social media. At last, I want to say that try to look inside yourself and start recognizing yourself. This will surely help you in your life.
