The experience of living through a pandemic has altered our perceptions of man nature interactions beyond our imagination. This paper aims to trace the impact of Covid 19 on environment in the light of the regeneration of life in this planet due to the reduction of human interferences on planet earth. Itlocates the historical roots of environmental degradation in disaster capitalism and argues that in spite of the hollowness of the human centred concept of development, the capitalist dispensations around the world have desisted the communities and governments, in realising the dangers of Anthropocene, seeking an alternate future. The paradox of this geopolitics is elucidated using the Shock Doctrine of Naomi Klein.
