Together, we are stronger
The COVID-19 pandemic is not only an enormous crisis but also a pervasive restructuring of our lives, individual and collective. A connected world accelerates the reach of a contagion but also responds with multitudes of narratives of resilience to fortify the collective. The cries of despair are loud, but louder are the strategies and solutions being pooled in from across the world.
Organizations are rapidly shifting to remote and cloud paradigms to enable productivity and collaboration from distance. Previously commonplace apprehensions about virtual experiences quickly subsided as businesses re-calibrated operations and delivery amidst the lockdown. Even as most parts of the world begin unlocking, our DNA has begun mutating to ensure safety in the post-COVID new normal.
Despite the shock, progress is evident – the wait for a vaccine will be much shorter than one would extrapolate from past examples. There is a keen sense of positivity in people and businesses marching on to recovery and a drive to rise up to the challenge of doing better than before.
The challenges posed by corona virus highlighted the need to attend to already pressing issues of inequality of opportunity and access. An intelligent system is an evolving system, aware and responsive to its environment. As inhabitants of the information era, we are privileged to have access to technology, tools and scope for collaboration that allow us to combat threats like the present crisis better than ever before. The onus is on us, to take the setback as a cue for reset and rise stronger, together.
