Lockdowns have led to an increase in domestic violence around the world. This has put marital lives at risk, resulting in divorce. Italy is the most affected country in Europe by the Corona, where, long lockdowns have escalated civil strife. Annulment applications have increased during the lockdown in Italy.
According to the British newspaper, the number of divorce cases in Italy has increased by 30% in the last 10 weeks. Italian lawyers told the British newspaper that during the lockdown, they had a 30 percent increase in divorce cases, those seeking information about divorce and those initiating divorce proceedings.
On the other hand, the legal battle for an annulment in London led to the bankruptcy of the couple. The judge said that the couple, who fought for their divorce for two years, spent almost every penny on their lawyers. However, The couple spent 594,000 Pounds on lawyers in two years, leaving them with only 5000 Pound. Thus, left with practically nothing.
Psychologists agree that the restriction on the movement and lockdown has spiked the tensions in the home. Various psychologists suggested the government to provide online couples therapies to minimize the divorce rate.

Isn’t it the best Time for Books to Die with Dignity?
For many years our society has not seen any major problem. We had books and stories about World Wars, and movies never let that fantasy go. But as much as books and films will convince you, the truth is the truth anyway and it is also a fact that war, epidemic, famine or anything like that did not shake our society from its foundations.
The operations of the Taliban and the TTP were present, but they did not affect our lives in such a way that the way of life would change completely, as the Coronavirus has now completely shaken us for the first time in our lives. Not only do we need to rearrange our lives, routines, and priorities, but we have to change a lot. These changes are affecting all the sphere of life, but the way the Coronavirus has affected the book and its affiliates, hardly any other way of life has been affected.
Lockdown, uncertainty, and lack of money have kept us away from books. The shops are closed, no one knows when they will open, and when they will open will the buyers buy the book again in the same lifestyle or not? These questions bother many. In such a situation, many people are asking readers to include the purchase of books in their budget so that the book and its affiliates do not give up. But there are other facts and truths that we rarely include in our conversation. Let’s try to tell the same truth today.
In the last ten to fifteen years, the abundant availability of smartphones and cheap net packages in Pakistan has given birth to a new class of readers, who are not at all interested in reading books and are also against buying volume books. They like books in PDF and there are thousands of reasons to like it. As thousands of PDF books fit in a small USB and space in the house is not a problem. Although selling PDFs is a huge business in the rest of the world, but instead of buying PDFs, millions of young people in Pakistan ask each other for links to it, and groups on many social media sites, including WhatsApp, are creating and distributing PDFs of each new book. Who would want to buy a book when it is available for free?
A large number of publishers in our country are under severe pressure due to this PDF culture. Many publishers appealing from the youth to avoid being a part of this PDF culture as it is killing the writer and publishers. But young people are reluctant to listen to and understand such messages. This has had a direct effect on book sales and author pay, which is why the quality of the book and story is no longer what it used to be. However, there are voices from the youth for the regular elimination of volume books, who are not able to answer the question of what will be made of PDF if the volumes are depleted and when there is no compensation. How can a writer write? Those who love these books are obsessed with turning every book in the world into a PDF and having it available on their computer or laptop, so they have thousands of PDF books all the time but they are more interested in downloading the PDFs rather than reading them.
This group of people who spend their holidays sleeping and traveling watching movies still do not stop downloading books and keep on increasing their treasures, but when and how will these treasures be used? No response.
Beyond this whole situation, there is another question, what have these books given us? When we try to deceive ourselves with the difficult words of intellectual development, nourishment of the soul, maturity, and ignorance, the real question beyond this rhetoric is the fact that seventy-three years of textbooks and non-textbooks, what effect has it had on today’s youth? Our young generation does not even know about determination, courage, and fortitude. The literature, distinction, and tolerance of the youth are declining with each passing day and the more the youth claims to be studying, the more arrogant and rude he becomes. Social media is a reflection of our society which shows that today’s youth have no etiquette to talk to anyone. He does not know how to agree and disagree. While the shame from the elders and respect and love for the youngers is disappearing from the homes, and this is not visible at all on social media. Our youth excel at ridiculing their political and religious opponents.
Photoshops and posts based on false nonsense are no longer considered evil on social media, and there is no gender barrier in all of this. On the contrary, the storm of obscenity and nudity that the girls have created on video apps, including Tiktok, has left the Islamic and Eastern civilizations dead, as evidenced by the silence of their families. You must say that our youth is very hardworking and educated and so on. But I am sorry that such a cover-up of the evils has made our young generation like this today. The way our young people spend their time is reflected in their education and the literature they read and write in society.
The only thing that can be said is that after seventy-three years of textbooks and extracurricular books, world-class literature, no-nonsense claims, and the fuss generated by the PDF generation then the question is, if the result is to be in the form of the present young generation, isn’t it better for the book to die with dignity now?
How to Start your own Business?
The following are some practical tips for young people who want to start their own business. These tips are based on my own observations, experiences, and research on other people. If you agree, you should follow them.
1. Don’t think that whatever you are doing at the moment is useless or a waste of time. Thank goodness you have a job. Because the experience gained from the current job is going to come in handy for the rest of your life.
2. Now, if you are planning to start a business, first think of doing business similar to your current job, don’t try your luck in a whole new field. Like working in a school, in your academy, or school supplies, or other tasks used in your current job. Like most of the bankers are doing side business of couriers, stationery, computer-related products.
3. Get involved in the business as a sleeping partner or part-time with a business person to learn first. Never quit your job right away, but use the existing job network to start a business.
4. Never enter the learning curve with too much investment. Stay on the sidelines to see and understand business secrets. Don’t be tempted to make quick profits.
5. If needed, hire a sibling, relative, or employee to replace you in your new business. Don’t sacrifice your job right away. Create a feeling of gratitude in yourself and feel happy that you are going to set up a business with a job. Which you will be able to fully adopt soon.
6. Create a balance between your current job and your new business. Don’t let a business problem affect your job. Keep in mind that you are in the process of learning the business.
7. When your new business starts to grow and you feel that the business needs your full time now, say goodbye to your current job in a good way, not to ruin the relationship in chaos.
So friends, here are some basic things to look for when starting a business with a job. Remember that setting up your own business is more difficult than a job. Stay away from unrealistic things like I am the boss etc. If you take things in stride and try not to focus too much on the problem, you will be able to start a new business in just a few years.
