In his 1986 magnum opus Risk Society: Towards a New Modernity, Ulrich Beck, in an almost prophetic vision, speaks about the emergence of a modernity that is increasingly structured around and effected by new qualities of risk which are predominantly undetectable, inescapable, and irreversible.
The Covid-19 pandemic, which has completely blindsided societies, economies, organisations, and governments worldwide, would certainly qualify as one. Chief among its major impacts has been the exponential rise of perceived risk and uncertainty in diverse domains of human activity.
With a sensational slowdown in the global economy, the pandemic has compelled businesses to rethink their modus operandi. Amidst a plethora of such colossal challenges, business leaders, policy maker and management gurus are under extraordinary pressure to rethink strategies for recovery, building resilience, and adaptation to new normal.
Good tidings, however, are on their way. The world economy is reviving, businesses are bouncing back, workplaces are rejuvenating, governments and people are snapping out of the slumber. With truncated oil prices concomitant with low interest rates worldwide, opportunities are abundant for countries like India to tap into global markets and attain a brisk growth.
There are bountiful prospects to achieve self-reliance, by prudent implementation of ventures like Make in India along with innovation and reform in economy, infrastructure, and technology. A post-pandemic world bequeaths to us the unique opportunity of revisiting our policies, realigning our goals, and reimagining our institutions.
