To change or not to change in the post-CoVID world
Professor Anand Ranganathan
There have been many pandemics but no other pandemic has affected us as has the CoVID-19 pandemic. Doubtless, a path for our future has appeared, what is being described in the common lexicon as the “New Normal”. Question is, do we really need to take it? What happens if we don’t? By definition, taking a path means that we have chosen it, and are not being forced to walk on it. What is this new normal and how is it going to be better than the “normal”? Taking examples from various disciplines, notably Science, the lecture will try and explore the implications of accepting, or indeed rejecting, to take this path.
