Corona virus has left no one untouched. A pandemic which is out of our control and everyone including Indian in Australia don’t know how to deal with it.Initially it seemed like a Stay vacation (vacation at home) but gradually the aftermath of this virus is showing its colours in each and every one of our life. The impact of the virus whether it’s direct, impacting your health or indirect, impacting your work, social life or family life is ‘a big unknown’. It’s a challenge which we human will need to get used to it eventually, making it a ‘New Normal’. However until we sync into the new normal disruption whether in technology or families is inevitable.
With disruption comes transformation and whether its technology or families, transformation is necessary to be prepared for the ‘New Normal. Indian in Australia are known to be a resilient community in Australia. Hard work is our forte for Success in Australia. Whether it’s COVID or not that forte will be unshaken, however at times with hard work, stress comes along and COVID situation isn’t helping i.e. humans call it by many names Domestic violence, financial insecurity, loneliness and anxiety.
By no doubt disregarding the impact, but this situation asks every one of us to take responsibility of our actions, step up for the betterment of our families and community. This responsibility is the basic human nature and each and every one of us whether you are husband (trying to earn a living for your family) or a wife (trying to protect your kids from pandemic) needs to transform into a better human being.
Let’s for starters concentrate on the good things this COVID has brought to the community. We are spending more time with our families and community. We are making sure our parents and relatives back home are safe. Whether we agree or not we all admit that we are lucky to be in Australia. So why can’t we all be grateful of being in Australia and try to best use of this COVID situation. An opportunity rather than a battlefield of growing resentment causing hatred, divorcé and what not.
