Skill upgrading demands during pandemic time

Skill upgrading is a desire to grow, but it is not the solution to reduce unemployment.  During Pandemic, it is not easy for people to learn new skills or additional skills to get the job for survival. 

To fight with unemployment, institutions and authorities need to upgrade themselves to utilize available skills in different areas. Many computer operators are available and looking for jobs and there are several areas where computers…

Post Pandemic:- Metamorphosis or transformation?

Metamorphosis and transformation both indicate changes.  One of the major difference I feel is, in metamorphosis, situation can’t be reversed . If a caterpillar changed in to the butterfly, can’t go back in pupa stage or Larvae  stage.  Butterfly needs to learn flying instead of relearning crawling like larvae. 

After Pandemic, situation is changed a lot for many people who can’t go back into the situation as it was before pandemic.…

This prejudiced use of terminology vexed me, and reminded me of the varying occasions where…
