We'll see more of this. People are consciously or subconsciously sensing the sheer uselessness of aspects of life which have been sold to us and what we lapped up unthinkingly. We never realised that too much information can also lead to a society thriving on post-truth.
Looks like this is part of a larger trend. Multiple handles on Twitter are reporting this.
My own personal experience with batch mates, ex colleagues,relatives, friends etc confirms it.
Looks like most white collar workers have had a bit of an epiphany during the pandemic & quit their jobs with no plans in the immediate future of seeking employment instead trying to see the grand purpose behind the lives they've lead & wish to lead .
Ofc this is a privileged group we're talking about who're asset heavy, mortgage lite with a decent investment cum saving portfolio.
But the sheer numbers are mind boggling.
