The world we live in right now is as uncertain as it has always been. Yet this year has given us a first-hand experience of how fickle this universe can be. You either adapt to the changing times or you stay stuck and lose everything. You keep on fighting others to survive. One more fight that everyone must take part in is the fight within. The fight between who we think we should be and who we are. But no one talks about this fight; everyone is focused only on surviving that they forget that our existence is for flourishing and not just surviving.

Flourishing means to live at an optimal level of human functioning. It means that we find meaningful work, which gives us fulfillment in our lives. We can connect to people around us at a deeper level. To flourish is to live a good life filled with happiness which is composed of three major elements- positive emotions, engagement, and meaning according to Dr. Seligman, author of Authentic Happiness. This sounds good but the path is not easy. Growth is never linear; you feel like you are on the right track one day and on the other completely lost.

We have to put a stop to the domino effect of terrible beauty across the world. Humankind is engaged in a fierce battle, the battle of survival. A new brush is needed to paint green the nightmarish apocalyptic landscape of the world.

 The pandemic lockdown has become a valuable coefficient of understanding of our life at close quarters on this planet which has also led to revisualising a partly hallucinatory cum contradictory vision of the human life in the coming future.
