Q. How was Week 1 of the Unlocked World for you?


A. In  Social  Contract, Jean-Jacques Rousseau wrote: “Man is born free but he is everywhere in chains”. The current scenario reminded me of the relevance of the same even now, though Rousseau opined in a different context.  For me  personally, I haven’t found  any major difference  between the lockdown versions and the beginning of the unlockdown version, as the virus is still active and thrusted discipline has only  been replaced by the need for  self- discipline and self-regulation for collective benefit, including myself. Till the vaccine comes or till our immunity improves, I feel our living norms have altered for ever. So jhuk jao, ya tut jaoge.
