Never in our life had we had experienced such a heartbreaking time like the COVID-19 disaster, which will remain in the history of mankind forever. Irrespective of the age, sex, creed, caste, religion, belief systems or socioeconomic status, it spread a colossal misery to mankind.

Yes, still we are in the midst of the Corona tragedy and it may continue for a long time beyond our speculations. The unknown and unpredictable nature of the origin, spread, morbidity, mortality and the associated problems and challenges to the whole population in all countries is really an enigma. Future being like this, we are really confused about the what, why, when, where and how of our life. This is really important for making in-depth changes and well planned futuristic projects and programs aligning with the low of nature.
This subject is very important in the current scenario. Here we are trying to present the major areas and steps to be taken in the future. Each step needs elaborate thinking and planning.
We should also notice that nature has lost it’s balance and is trying to bring it back to a normal state. Nature really loves us- but we started gradually hating nature and destroying it by various methods. Anyhow a “Returning Back to Home” policy is really needed. So we should make new strategic plans, ideas, etc. in the personal, social, governmental, national and international levels. The active interaction of all authorized Governmental and Non-Governmental bodies are highly needed.
