Sometimes Adults too behave immature. Certain actions are illogical.
Have a look at what’s happening in Maharashtra now. Last I heard, Maharashtra have reported highest ever single day cases of Covid19 a day back. This is the number, higher even than the first wave. Looking at current rising trend, some experts predict that this second wave can be much bigger than the first one.
Coming back to illogical actions, it would be prudent to say that opening up places wasn’t a logical decision. The virus didn’t vanish in the first place. It was still there when the high command decided to open up places.
In my opinion, it was illogical decision opening the public transport. This is the main reason of rising Covid19 cases in Maharashtra.
The point is not a blame game here. It’s just to highlight, not only youngsters, but sophisticated adults too are sometimes prone to irrational decision making.
Personally, I’ve seen many youngsters making more ‘logical’ decisions compared to their counterpart adults.
Maybe the society conditioned adult is missing some individual decision-making skills…
