The idea of a time being divided into two-time era in the form of B.C. and A.D. has been prevalent based on the life of Jesus Christ. An iconic messiah which had divided the global history into two different precincts. One before the birth of Christ and the other after his demise. Now the global Covid-19 pandemic could also be looked at exactly the same way.
One where we could look at the similar way the world that existed before Covid-19 pandemic and the other that is now while we are still in the process and looking for a time period which may be considered as something post-Covid-19. This is why we are going back to the notion of dividing the era into two different times, to understand how the dynamics of geo-politics has changed especially post-Covid.
Amidst all of this the Russia-Ukraine war spread out which created a huge impact on world politics. In this scenario of world politics, India has been a key player in the realm of geo-politics. The sudden rise of India has also provided the opportunity to play a role as a mediator in dynamics of Russia-Ukraine conflict.
