COVID-19 has created another great depression. India and the world will never be the same from a cultural, social, economic and business context. Business models will have to be rewritten, and many businesses will not survive. Some new ones will get created. Though some of the Chinese supply chain could move to India, globalization as we know it is dead. How long the recovery path will be is anybody’s guess.
This creates both challenges and opportunities for Indian firms. Businesses are likely to be struggling. Financials will be seriously off. For mid-size firms, the challenges could be greater, as growth companies tend to be smaller, and while agile, more prone to catch a flu!
