Despite reduced pollution levels during the lockdown and better visibility, engineer fails to see his future

New Delhi. When India imposed a nationwide lockdown a week ago, it was designed to stop the imminent spread of the novel coronavirus. The pollution levels have gone down drastically in the national capital due to the lockdown. But Jagdish Malik, an Engineer, is still not able to see his future.


It is the same case with most of the engineers in the country. Already, data shows that the main cities are recording much lower levels of harmful microscopic particulate matter. People were sharing the before and after photos of various places in Delhi and the difference was vividly visible. But Jagdish still failed to see his future clearly.

He even tried using a telescope to see much far away but nothing was visible to him. “I have not seen such blue skies in Delhi for the past 10 years,” said Jagdish. But he also added that just like all these years, he can’t see the future of an engineer in this country.

Government authorities have assured Jagdish and other Engineers that they will look into the matter once the Corona issue is closed and the economy is back on track.
