My first day of Work amidst COVID -19

Geared up for battle Corona…

It’s been nearly two and half months, I was inside home and coming after one of the longest lock downs in the history of countries. I had got mail from my office that, I shall be needed in my office after doing work from home for 68 days. When, i boarded the cab and went towards the highway, I found that there is enough traffic in Delhi by now rather than what I used to see a month back in news.

COVID- 19 has drawn first blood in rummaging our routines and adjust to a newer form of way of life called the ” new normal”. The new normal is a place where everyone is masked and there is strict social distancing norms everywhere. Moreover there is an eerie sense of fear and uncertainty around whom we should speak and distance with.

Sometimes, I feel that WFH is better than working at a 9 to 5 setup. There is some flexibility at home and you can slow things down and do work at a relaxed pace,take a nap which is not possible in the office. I feel that WFH is a blessing in disguise and many organizations around the world have adapted to this way of functioning and found it to be beneficial from a cost savings perspective.

India is limping back to normalcy after being hit from this epidemic. It is almost a war where not a single bullet was fired, but there are fatalities across all sectors and lives. I am no conspiracy theorist, but the ramifications of COVID is long lasting and would take time for all of us who are in the shackles of this pandemic.

My office work was manageable as there were very less people reporting today, and I am sent again for WFH duty. Yippie!!!

I wish to thank all the medical and emergency personnel who have put their lives in the line of fire,both in India and across the world to keep us safe in times of this adversity.

Till then, Stay Safe and Stay Humble !!!!
