  • The COVID-19 pandemic has paralyzed public life world-wide. The need for maintaining physical/social distance has led to a change in the order and nature of human activities across public spaces. As a result, the usual rhythm of activities in public spaces has come to be disrupted. Taking this into consideration, the study delves into the disrupted rhythm of the urban public spaces under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequently imposed lockdown. By adopting a case study-based approach, an in-depth analysis has been carried out to comprehend the change in the daily rhythm of a local road in the wake of the pandemic and lockdown. Lefebvre’s technique of ‘rhythmanalysis’ has been applied to carry out this study, as it is highly suited in studying the flow of everyday life in a spatiotemporal context. The article traces the change in the rhythm of activities in the study area during the pandemic and lockdown in comparison to the usual rhythm of activities that existed in the area before the pandemic. The findings of the study reveal that the pandemic has taken a toll on the study area, where the pre-existing rhythm of the public space has been overtaken by a disrupted rhythm that has given rise to chaos and confusion.

  • COVID-19 infectious disease is now considered as the first major climacteric invasion on humankind of the twenty-first centurysince the ‘Spanish flu’ of the twentieth. The virus has not only alarmed the mental and physical health of humankind, but its direct impact has severely damaged the economy of maximum nations of the world, and India is no exception to that.

  • Along with its elevated contamination and fatality rates, the 2019 Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) has caused worldwide psychosocial impact by causing mass hysteria, financial burden and economic losses. Mass fear of COVID-19, termed as “coronaphobia”, has generated a glut of psychiatric exposition across diverse strata of the society. So, this review has been set about to portray psychosocial impact of COVID-19. Disease itself conglomerated by mandatory quarantine to counter COVID-19 applied by countrywide lockdowns can generate acute panic, angst, obsessive behaviors, stock piling, paranoia and depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder in due course. These have been stirred up by an “infodemic” spread via various platforms of social media. Outbreak of racism, stigmatization, and xenophobia against particular communities are also being extensively reported. Nonetheless, frontline healthcare workers are at elevated risk of acquiring the disease as well as experiencing detrimental psychological outcomes in shape of exhaustion, worry, trepidation of transmitting infection, augmented substance-dependence and PTSD. The present article attempts to investigate these areas of contagion and suggest intervention dynamics to address the issue and therefore observes that psychosocial crisis prevention and intervention models should be urgently devised by the government, health care personnel and other stakeholders. Appropriate application of internet services, technology and social media to control both pandemic and ‘infodemic’ require to be initiated.

  • Unanimously lockdown is the most scientific way to flatten the curve of COVID-19. But, lockdown has the negative influence on social, psychological, physiological and economical aspects of life as well. Under this health emergency situation, the depression is playing its role as silent killer on immune suppression. Physiologically the immune suppressed people are more prone to any viral infection like COVID-19. Moreover, there are so many adverse effects of depression on our health. Therefore, it is a challenge to minimize the depression related immune suppression caused by the pandemic of Covid-19. The Government of India should admit the truth of physiology in the light of depression related to immune suppression during the lockdown period. Without the sweat of healthy human resources, money cannot reform Indian economy. Therefore, many anti-depressant strategies have to be taken by the Government to minimize the psychological depression linked directly with the health of human resources. Therefore, this is the high time to think positively about the anti-depressant strategies to minimize and flatten the curve of COVID-19 in future.

  • The present study seeks to find a reliant philosophy of development in the post COVID-19 times to come. Since being contiguous, the Novelcoronavirus has switched almost every human activity uncertain all over the world. Rather the health emergency in this pandemic has strangled human existence on this planet which every country and government are fighting against. Like many others, global economy and development are under severe threat that tend us to chalk out a theorem to be mechanized for bringing the global village back into normalcy. The paper delves deeper to establish a connection of development with wellbeing, keeping human resource at the center of significance. It also measures the interrelation of wealth, economy and development with human resource and suggests a balanced prioritization of the same in terms of accelerating Gross Domestic Product (GDP). As the future after COVID 19 will not be the same like before, even after the pandemic being over, the proposed theorem tries to contemplate the global economy with a new outlook of long-term development.
