The normal that was before the nCOVID pandemic- was that real normal – materialistic world, career advancement, schools or colleges in a way out-source holistic learning and personality development of their children by neglecting good parenting. Quick gratification leading to in-discretionary spending. It doesn’t stop here pollution challenges, global warming, destruction of natural forests. We were all going about our lifestyles taking everything for granted. We have abused Mother Nature for too long. The nCOVID crisis has and delivered multiple valuable lessons to mankind.
The learning from this crisis should be included in the school education curriculum and make the children fully aware of the challenges and help to live life in the new normal.
I wonder many times when we think of our childhood, that was the normal. Over decades we have made the normal into a dangerous new normal. If we all learn lessons for it we may at some go back what was normal. If our education systems and community education gets it right it could be:
Normal in ancient times when we did not live recklessly…….
What has happened now is due to the abnormal lifestyles we practiced and in tun abused nature.
Crisis happened to make the usual normal of the earlier era!
We should transform our educational systems. To make students today understand and aware so that they do the right things to keep the balance between humankind and nature. There may never be another opportunity for the mankind!
