This situation is different to anything I have been involved in my life so far

Whether it was purely natural or manufactured, there have been some winners and losers from it:

- Big food companies like supermarkets ; even small businesses like corner shops and off licences are doing well in UK. However, high street shops which  cannot open are going out of business

- Cashless industry vs cash as lots of big businesses still open are rejecting cash where possible for 'hygiene reason'

- IT companies because more people are working from home so requiring their technology. On the whole, small businesses who cannot do remote working are losing out

- Delivery companies because people buying more stuff online

- media because more people are following news

-  Hygiene product companies because of hand sanitisation etc

- Pharnaceutical and vaccine industry

 

What does this all (and more not mentioned) mean for the future?

End of cash in society?

Fewer small businesses and more big and bigger businesses?

More people working from home?

Everyone will be forced to have more vaccines?

Gatherings e.g. theatre/movie/sports/religious, school and college classrooms will no longer be as common?

Yes, but they follow in the footsteps of Sikhs over other non Punjabi Hindus.

Along as Corona gets sorted and the Chinese can stop eating bats. I think everything will get back to normal.

India is going to benefit from this BIG TIME. Especially from pharmaceutical sales and other nations switching to India from China for stuff. 

Won’t be good for indo-Chinese relations

Losers- Hotels, tourist spot shops, casinos, taxis, restaurants, karate schools, Cafes, clothing industry, malls, food joints, ship industry, logistic companies, car dealerships, auto makers, mechanics, fuel stations, airline industry, theme parks, Construction projects, computer hardware, computer software etc etc. 

Winners - only owners of some tech companies providing remote access software programs and essential product producing companies like 3M.

doubt it Modi will benefit , his cronies will benefit , but the vast majority of Indians will lose jobs, lose homes , die of either hunger or disease, this is because after giving only 4HOURS notice he shut  down everything transport, going outside etc leaving millions stranded and having to walk home , already more than 30 have died trying to do that.
India may have cheap labour but the west will be looking to become somewhat self-sufficient especially for medical supplies , it makes sense especially since China delivered contaminated /faulty medical mask and PPE, transport routes allowed interception of ventilators by other nations.

GDP had fallen to 4 percent prior to the pandemic through outright bank robbery and incompetence by Modi  now God knows how low it will be .

he did the same thing on demonitisation  'today at midnight 500 and 100 rupee notes  will no longer be valid' , it is deliberate to stoke up the fear , the confusion , the opportunity for criminals to take advantage whether government based or the free market.

guju neighbours asked me where I bought my fruit trees which are my mini orchard , he reckons I'm onto something because of this kerfuffle . We as qaum have to become self-sufficient , even down to our own chemists, doctors, scientists, mathematicians, manufacturers ,economist, environmentalists, bankers, development and strategy personnel . We have to learn to staff our future raj; push education and mental strength, physical strength.
Stop supporting the big places , support apne businesses, make entrepeurship a goal not employment by others corporations . Learn to feed your families by growing our foods, make own clothes , live minimal sustainable lives .

do sikhs outside india display bonhomie with indian hindus , or go their own way (khalistani ??) 

I am sure the hindus would easily notice lol . But outside indian political constraints, many sikhs I reckon would feel free to assert as a totally independent entity I guess

btw gujjus are very business-minded . beware !

Sikhs outside India for the most part don't really have much to do with Indian Hindus. 

The most interaction would be with Hindu Punjabis.

most hindus do not mix happyily with sikhs, it is only punjabi hindus with sikh relations who are OK with us, sikhs OK with everyone until they start harming us or speaking against us . For some reason Hindus have a blind spot when it comes to their chor uchaki BJP govt , you cannot say anything contrary about them even it is the truth of how bad the situation is getting there. Yeah I know about Gujjus , my ones have always been playing one manupship  with us who just do stuff to make life comfy for our clan and aren't playing their games . i.e. not even aware of them

I think what has been shown is how being online has kept everything going. Imagine what would happen if this was 20 years ago.

However,  human beings being social animals have the need to have people to people interaction and I don't think online shopping can replace that.
