During this pandemic scenario, technology helped us in a lot of ways.

Last year cops in India used drones to keep surveillance on the people who violate, lockdown protocols during the lock down period. This was the best example I could remember of the usage of technology during Covid-19.

During this pandemic scenario, technology helped us in a lot of ways. Let us see a few sectors in which technology is being used during Covid-19.


Talking about the education sector, in most of the countries schools or colleges are closed by the government. We students and our teachers are now both dependent on online education as its after effects. So, we are also using technology to connect to each other or attend lectures. We have been using different applications to connect like Google Meet, Zoom cloud meetings, etc.

This helped both students and teachers to interact. Moreover, teachers could share projects or presentations on screen to explain the topic better. Even the assignments can be submitted online. Overall, technology helped the education sector to continue its pace.

Entertainment became an essential element during the pandemic as people couldn't move out of their houses to entertain themselves. A thing that became more popular during this time were web series. In order to entertain themselves people started watching web series of different genres. Many platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime,Disney Hotstar, etc. made it easier for people to see the content at their ease. The time when we will go back to movie theaters is still uncertain but this is a wonderful alternative.Even gaming is another alternative for entertainment.Several gaming platforms have witnessed substantial growth in their user base. There has been a significant spike in the gaming sector's sales and the duration for which the games are being played. People are using gaming as an option to deal with COVID-19 stress.

Covid-19 was the reason we got lock downs in different countries. So, we can never forget the health sector. The Government of India was helped a lot by the Arogya Setu app which helped in tracking the patients around people,and now even helps in booking vaccination slots. Many doctors are providing consultation on chat or phone to people on how to deal with this deadly virus. For tracing the spread these applications are used. In the news, we saw police officers tracking people through drones during lock down. People started attending sessions online to remain fit and boost immunity at the ease of their homes.

The work from home option has ensured business continuity for various companies and businesses. Internet,data privacy security, virtual meetings, cloud conferencing,etc. have assisted professionals in adapting themselves to work from the home scenario with ease. WFH has also ensured that the deliverable are not delayed. Remote working has been a blessing in disguise, which has helped us to a great extent to maintain and follow social distancing protocols.

The Shopping that we did earlier by visiting stores and malls is also limited to our homes. We can order stuff online and get it delivered at our doorstep. This was taking place even before the pandemic but a new thing added was contact less deliveries. This simply means that the delivery person is not going to come in contact with you and still deliver your package to your doorstep. Therefore, we can say the role of technology during Covid -19 was significant.

Many causes, including technology, climate change, demographics, and inequality, will cause our planet to change more in this century than in all of human history.

There are obvious signals that we need new ways of thinking about the world and our place in it all over the place. Our old ways of thinking about education, lifestyle, success, and happiness are no longer valid. What are the changes in the workplace? When future jobs are still being invented, how can you know what talents will be useful? Will 'jobs' even exist in the future, or will we be relegated to a world of projects and freelance work? What do you do with all of this and more?

What the Heck Do I Do With My Life? is a book on figuring out what you want to do with your life. Ravi Venkatesan argues that effective adaptation in the twenty-first century necessitates a "paradigm shift," a new attitude, new talents, and new techniques. Ravi also considers how, rather than drifting along like a piece of driftwood, we will need to live life more consciously, making deliberate decisions about who we are, what we do, and how we live.

It's A Wonderful World: A Memoir

His book is a provocative read that makes us wish we had a life like his. Khalid Ansari's life has been an exciting and purposeful journey in service to his fellow human beings, beginning with his birth in Mumbai's impoverished Madanpura to a father who began his life as an orphan and a mother from a poor household. Ansari has attempted to depict some highlights of a splendored life that he has been lucky to experience, catching stars while chasing rainbows in this 'donkey's tale'. It's been la vie en rose for him, from founding newspapers and magazines to representing his country at the United Nations, accompanying dignitaries on state visits, covering cricket Test matches, nine Olympics, Commonwealth and Asian Games, travelling the world, and being awarded the Padma Shri award. The author has worked hard to keep this narrative from devolving into a 'I-did-this-did-that' pat-on-the-back, shabash!' By 'spicing' it up with dollops of frothy stories and self-critical bon mots, he has attempted a discourse on the meaning of life, the 'right path,' and the like, even as he has attempted a discourse on the purpose of life, the 'right route,' and the like.
