Pandemic has hit us pretty hard. Each day, we hear the news that directly or indirectly affects our mental health. Staying home, wearing masks wherever you go, and carrying sanitizers have become the new normal. We all have been stressed out, depressed and bored in the current scenario. People lost their jobs and loved ones. While many took time to relax and slow down with their lives in the lockdown, others lost their hope and will to live. We have hundreds of debates trying to figure if technology is a boon or bane to our existence. However, one must not forget that the same technology has kept us sane during the lockdown.
People have turned to entertainment to have fun. Despite theatres and other entertainment areas being closed, people could entertain themselves, all thanks to technology. Over-the-top (OTT) platforms such as Netflix, Hotstar, and Amazon Prime have seen a surplus growth in the number of paid users during the pandemic. According to Business insider, while the number of subscriptions increased by 8%, the number of unique paid users surged by more than 35%. These platforms have given people the chance to relax and divert their minds from all the negative things happening around them.
Nowadays, even a child is aware of the corona. This shows how much children are losing out on their childhood. They are unable to go to school, make friends, or even play outside with other kids. The situations are so bad that even adults are unable to cope-up with the stress. But we expect children to miss out on the most precious time of their lives, but we cannot compromise their safety as well. However, technology has made sure that it can keep people occupied to some extent. YouTube, online games and cashlootera played a major role too. People are creating content and consuming what they like. We are still able to watch our favourite movies and shows.
