“I am not well, I will work from home” – Those were the days, when we used to cry and wanted to work from home. Everyone wanted a fixed office time and wanted a holiday on weekends. Now everyone’s dreams have come true but on a very sad note. Yes, Everyone was forced to work from home, almost 22 hours a day, No weekends. The work culture has horribly changed in these past two years. Some went into depression, some even commit suicide. The pressure of work was so much that people could not handle it. Though there was a layoff, there were resignations too. Seniors blame their juniors for not working, and juniors complain about horribly excess work. Some companies announced that they will keep this work from home culture till 2025. While some companies even announced permanent work from home but with pay cuts.
Students always dream about not giving exams. Yes, their dream also became true but one horrible phase came in their life that some company said no placement for this passout students. Now these students either have to go through nepotism or do further studies so that they are able to get a job. Feeling very bad for these students, who danced with their hearts out and later realized that they were dancing on very very cheap songs.
But is this work from home culture right? Well, I genuinely feel, every work should have its own place. Home is the place to relax and have fun. Home is the place to be busy, but in some other ways and in some other things. I know covid made this situation work for everyone from home but now it’s time to take precautions and get back to the place where the work belongs. Employees who stood with the company in these two years should be given a pay rise. People who were laid off, should get retained.
In this progressing world, we need robots for each and every work. But I personally feel, if everything is replaced by robots then people will sit at home and start scratching their bums. People will start watching all the toxic serials and reality shows on TV and start implementing them in real life. The future of robots is a very very bad stage for human beings. I have heard many things about advanced technology like delivery by drone, flying cars, and even talking human-like robots. Believe me, It’s not good. If the drone starts delivery of food, The humans will be jobless and they have to learn a new job. If talking robots come into our life then we will require no family and friends to have fun around. This will lead to frustrations and depressions because such things are cured by human beings only who can understand the pain, not robots.

We can be peaceful at the end of the day only when all assigned tasks are done with unwavering focus. As i always believe and it has being my pet line” work done well is the greatest comfort on this planet”. And apparently each and every area of work should be done at that assigned time. Even the most mundane work( mundane work as believed by acid aunties and uncles and sadly few youngsters too) like cleaning, mopping sweeping ,laundry.,cooking( forget eatiing)should be ideally done in morning, one phone call from boss at around 7.30 Am or a watsapp ting ting at 7.Am asking for some information ,since you are working from home, especially when you are in middle of your domestic tasks, has a tremendous potential to leave you no where, isnt it? Especially when many people( all genders) in our country believe ghar mein kaam hota hi kya hai? People are made to do official work for more than official hours with pay cuts. Its a long long story. Sadly , we were not allowed to condition our thought process and beliefs to face these unprecendented times which left us with depressing juggle, in this dense jungle of what to do and what not to do.
