It’s 8:15 a.m. and absolutely as usual late for my 8:00 am daily soap. I was busy fastening my wrist watch, rustling all the books with my new unbranded clinging earphones, unplugging my smartphone and my steps speeded up out my house for the very first lecture. I’m sure most of you might have started their morning hurry to get at their offices, opening laptops, calling, mailing and the day goes over. This techno-chain would snap off by frequent use of electronic media and data transmission which has demolished the health of computer.
In those days, we were just aware of virus in the computer until a virus outside the computer invaded in the whole world! It seemed like the technologies and inventions built for faster, better and easier lives are now hampered and shutdown. After lockdown, coronavirus created a wreak havoc on markets, industries and businesses around the world. I was partly happy for no more daily exercises to get ready for college, but my immatured mind realised late that situation was even worse.
COVID-19, the raving word with all letters capital and two numerics was found to spread haphazardly like a fire in the forest. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared this virus as pandemic for spreading at least in 170 countries and territories.

College faculties too got inspired and started online lectures and assignments. Fortunately, schools are still closed. But truly, businesses and startups have faced a severe heart break. One can hardly estimate the loss and the struggle required to tackle up.
As people are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with others, a cascade of cancellations and postponements of major events from tech & sports to entertainment & politics has wiped off the calendar. The Tokyo 2020 Olympic games, IPL 2020, EA eSports, many movie blockbusters, singing concerts, stage shows and competitions, council meetings, political party speeches, etc. have either altered release dates or cancelled until 3 months.
In all these shutdowns, the groceries are a beacon of light for providing my favourite biscuits and all daily essentials to people. Medical facilities, police force, emergency services are also not behind in providing relief to all. Inspite of restricted production these are meeting the requirements appreciably.
Since past many decades, no one had ever seen such huge nuisance in the world! This has even brought threat to the economy breaking the supply chain of human lifestyle. The ill-effects will also continue after corona outbreak if human tends to carry forward the current environmental conditions. We all should take a challenge to restore the virus again inside the computer and have efficient use of technologies with due care. And surely, I’m missing my college more…
