The overall purpose of the paper is to find out the effectiveness of using internet as a mode of operation in our daily lives since the lockdown. It discusses the possible factors that can have an impact on the effectiveness of this process of using internet as a platform for work; how are we going to adapt to the new normalcy and the way forward. It includes a qualitative and quantitative analysis of how productive people feel using internet for work/studies. The analysis is confined to a sample size of 144 respondents who are a representative to a larger population falling under a wide age group starting from school going students to people in their late 50s who had to take a lot of pain to adjust to the new normalcy. The analysis shows that apart from the obvious reasons affecting people’s productivity, working for longer hours and information overload are the two most significant factors that hampers the effectiveness of internet as a mode of operation in Work from home and Online Classes respectively. The analysis reaches to a conclusion where students/working people have to find out possible ways in which they adjust to the situation, now that going back to the traditional way of living lives and working seems challenging. The desirable solution going forward is the existence and adaptation of a world which is a perfect amalgamation of both physical and virtual spaces.
