We have been tracking this infection since March when it came to India and we had to declare the lockdown. Today, 6 months on, we are at a different phase in the economy. We have to understand that this virus will not go away, it is we who have to adjust to it. Even as we maintain social distancing, and wear masks, and wash hands regularly, the important thing now is to dive back into business and achieve some semblance of normalcy.
